Welcome to my Thanksgiving table, We R Memory fans! Wendy Antenucci here today. I wanted to make place cards for my table to dress things up and with the help of a few amazing We R Memory Keepers tools that has been achieved!
I began my place cards using the 1-2-3 Punch Board to create boxes which I filled with some goodies for the kids. I wanted to use my 6×6 paper pads so my box dimensions were 1¾ inches, perfect for little treats and the perfect size to hold the mini alpha punch board letters. I used hot glue to hold the sides of my boxes together and then I adhered the letters to the outside of the box.
The next part of my project was using the pom pom maker, I chose the small size to create fluffy pom poms for the top of my boxes. I began my project with the idea of creating some leaves and attaching a tag, but the pom poms were calling for more!
I had a brain storm to create a rosette to use as a turkey tail, and it worked! I used my 6×6 paper pad and my Fringe & Score board to make the rosette. I then cut the 6×6 folded strips into 3 pieces to give me the tails of my turkeys. Using the staple board I stapled one end of the tail and fanned out the other side, then attached this to the pom poms.
Next my turkeys needed eyes; using the wide eyelets in white and beige colors I glued these onto the pom poms and then added in small orange triangles for the beaks. Black glitter glue was the final touches for the eyes.
And here is one final close-up of our table decorations for Thanksgiving. Don’t you love how innovative the We R Memory Maker tools allow you to be? Thanks for joining me today and we’d love to see what you are creating!
