Happy Thanksgiving

Wishing you and your family a VERY Happy Thanksgiving!

If you need a last minute idea for a placecard/favor...this 2/4/6/8 box works just great! There's a tutorial on Splitcoast...I've searched and know it's there...but I can't find it. You basically take a half sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock (5 1/2 x 8 1/2) and score it at 2/4/6/8". Turn the cardstock and score again at 2" for the bottom flaps. It is my favorite little box design for a quick and easy favor/gift. This one is filled with a few hershey's nuggets covered in dp...the dark chocolate kind...'cause it's "good for you" (lol!).

Not much timefor fun/challenge stamping this week. Family, Thanksgiving preparations, workshops and incoming orders have taken up most of my time...but those are all good things that I'm very grateful for!! There will be plenty of time to do some fun stamping next week = ) !

I will be drawing the 2 weekly winners for the Week 3 Grand Opening Challenge later this evening!!

Supplies for this project:

Stamps: Dotted Autumn (grateful for you), Linen (bg), Autumn Harvest (leaves and pumpkin)

Cardstock: Mostly Mustard, Old Olive, Really Rust, Vanilla & Apple Cider DP

Ink: Really Rust, Old Olive

Accessories: Artichoke gg ribbon, corner rounder, paper snips, hemp twine, cropadile for hole punching

Great idea for a placecard. Too bad there's so many of us that we eat "buffet" style - nothing formal at my house. Happy Thanksgiving!
