My Thanksgiving project is "Give Thanks" Turkey placecards and Autumn potpourri. These are perfect to use in decorating your table. I have also placed them all around my living room.
I love to buy the small plastic container of flowers from my LSS. I got these in Autumn colors and lightly coated each flower with Bath & Body Works Autumn Apple Home Fragrance Oil. The scent is of autumn apples with pear blossoms and a hint of applewood. Wonderful smells for the holidays. I love to do this to get the family in the mood for Thanksgiving.
This little card can be used for decor or as place settings. I added patterned paper from and "Give Thanks" ribbon from The Paper Studio to each of these. I actually recycled the turkey from a greeting card that I received. I love to recycle cards and make projects with them.
I have a special Thanksgiving prize to offer during this fun hop. It's the Teresa Collins Chipboard "Giving Thanks" album kit. It is filled with thoughts of thankfulness and gratitude. It includes: 12” x 12” double sided papers, die cut cardstock tags, One package of ribbon, Two chipboard book covers and four metal binding rings, Full color instructions, and more.
