Thanksgiving Place Settings

Last night Amanda and I worked on Thanksgiving Place Settings for our families.  We think they will love them, what do you think?
Thanksgiving Place Settings 
First we made these really cute turkey place card/candy holders.  I had seen the turkey at Louisville Regional on a card, but I changed his face a little.  These little candy holders will hold three Hershey Nuggets.  It is made with the larger of the Two Tags die.

When the Idea Book and Catalog came out my ladies and I were really attracted to the Grateful Greetings on page 27 of the catalog.  I then had run across a really cute Always Thankful Trifold Card made by Alex Hobson and decided to combine both ideas into my Spice Cake Grateful Greetings.  I found directions to make the Trifold Card at SplitCoastStampers here:  Trifold Pocket Card.

I have had the Petite Pocket die for awhile and hadn't taken it out of the package and thought maybe it would hold a place setting of flatware.  I was so excited that it worked.  I stamped it with the Gently Falling stamp set and tied some Spice Cake fabric around it for a bow.

Check back tomorrow for my two cards that we will be making Thursday in Technique Class.

What great projects! I feel a case coming on. I am having Thanksgiving dinner here. I just have to make the turkeys and just maybe the Petite pockets too! Thanks for the wonderful inspiration.

What a lovely place setting for Thanksgiving. The turkey is so cute and I really love the petite pockets idea for the cutlery. I've often wanted to do that especially when we're serving a buffet. TFS.
