Thanksgiving by Valerie

Valerie Mangan took her Thanksgiving project assignment to new heights with a lovely assortment of holiday decorations, dinner invitations, a centerpiece, and place cards. Valerie says, "Thanksgiving is always a big deal in our house and we usually feed a group of about 10-15. I put my stash of SRM Stickers to work to make these fun Thanksgiving feast decorations."

"For the goody bag, I used Labels by The Dozen and 'Quick Card' stickers to embellish the cardstock insert. It holds a packet of mulling spices and cinnamon sticks in an embellished tube. (Simmered in a pot, these items will make a house smell amazing!)"

"The centerpiece is a simple cylindrical canning jar covered with patterned paper." Love all the festive banners!

"For my invitation, I embossed the turkey and 'Happy Thanksgiving' at the bottom. A 'You're Invited' sticker serves as the detail area and it's embellished with some 'Express Yourself' and 'Quick Card' stickers."

"The place card is folded with a little ledge area to hold the name."

"Inside the card is a dated, lined journaling area where my guest can write something they are thankful for this year. I hope to save these all in an album."

What a wonderful way to add a homemade touch to the holiday. You can see our Thanksgiving products HERE. Pick up your Thanksgiving and Christmas stickers today!
