Thanksgiving is less than three weeks away (!!!) and I have a project to share with you now... you can utilize some or all of the components and be ready for Turkey Day ahead of schedule. :-)
I used the Welcome Fall Hybrid Kit and Welcome Fall Tags from Marks Paper Company to create a beautiful Thanksgiving table-scape. Everything is coordinated for you, and Stacy has such beautiful colors and designs in this line to choose from.

The napkin holder is made from a strip of paper with the scalloped punch on one side. I added a bead, a tiny tag and a larger tag to a length of wire and twisted the ends again... I also added a green velvet ribbon accent....
The place mat looks complicated, but it is so easy to make. I printed out my design (created in Adobe Illustrator) onto two sheets of 8.5 x 11 paper. I flipped one of the papers 180 degrees and then trimmed the two sheets to match. Finally, I lightly adhered them together along the seam. The stitching is basically for show, and it makes the place mat look like a little quilt! I slipped the place mat under a vinyl tablecloth protector so it won't get gravy or cranberry sauce on it!
