Thanksgiving Decor

I saw a super cute project on our challenge at My Sheri Crafts using tags and you can see it here.  I decided I wanted to use that same idea for Thanksgiving and here is my project:
 The tags are all cut at 6" from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More and I used old cereal boxes for them.  The banner is from Potpourri Basket and "Blessings" is from Cindy Loo, and I used a shiny copper paper on them.

The other cuts are from Doodlecharms, My World, Savory, Disney Princess Happily Ever After, Joys of the Season, Botanicals, Disney Pooh & Friends and Paper Doll Dress Up.  Thank goodness for my Gypsy so I could arrange the paper and cut everything at one time!  I used up a ton of scraps on this, which was great.

I wanted a little sparkle, so I used spray glitter from Hobby Lobby.  It looks a little too glittery in this pic, but it doesn't sparkle quite that much under normal lighting.  I'm really pleased with how it turned out.  I think I'll make a Christmas one, too!  Just a little funny story about this one.  When I decided to make it, I had it pictured sitting on top of my t.v. and in my mind it looked great there!  Perfect spot!   When I got it finished and took the pictures I hurried upstairs and as I stepped into the living room I remembered......we have a new t.v that is one of those flat, thin screens.  There is NO WAY anything can sit on top of that t.v.!  Man, I was disappointed, aggravated and a little embarrassed that I had forgotten that!  So, now it's sitting on a table in the corner, under a lamp.  Oh well, it's still a nice project!  :-)

  8. This is such a beautiful Thanksgiving decor project! :o) All of the cuts are beautiful, the sentiment is gorgeous, and I love how you created this out of tags! The sparkle is such a lovely touch, especially since blessings make people sparkly! And I like your story... it just goes to show that crafts are far more important than remembering TV details! Hehe. Happy to be your newest follower. :o) Thank you for playing along with us at Whimsical Wednesdays!

    Hugs and blessings!

  9. Hey, i must say you have worked really great. but i think the you should have used only light colored ribbons, like the light orange is fine but the blackish one looks quite dark and is not getting prominant on the tags.
    keep blogging, Sarah. :)
