Thanksgiving Place Setting Idea

4 Nov
I have such a fun idea to share with you!
The holidays are upon us.  I have an adorable idea for you to try for your Thanksgiving table this year.
How about mini cornucopias and easel place cards?
I had so much fun looking at my dies and figuring out what I could make for this cornucopia.
I think I am the queen of “thinking outside of the box.”
I will tell you my secret ingredients(dies) for each thing you are seeing here.
To start with, I used the Folding Fan.
The pumpkins are made from Wittle Wickers and Dimensional Small Leaves #2.
The tomato is made from Stacker Flower 3 and Leaf.
 The corn is made from the Tulip in the Tulip Frame die.
The vine the grapes are attached to is from Bird on a Branch.   The sunflower is from the Sunflower die.
I made the place cards from the Little Stackers French Flair dies.
The tiny rolled flower is the handle from the Folding Fan die.
All my papers are from Authentique Paper’s new line called Gathering.
SO what do you think?  Can you imagine how cute it would be to have these decorations at your table for Thanksgiving?
This was such a joy to make.  My kids just went nuts when the saw the tiny ears of corn.  They loved it all.
I hope you have enjoyed my project today.
This has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana with today’s post.
Happy Friday oh and Happy Birthday to me!!
