Facebook Live – November 17, 2020, Thankful Turkey Placesetting and Poinsettia Purse

This year for Thanksgiving, I wanted to make cute table place settings. They turned out so well, I decided to show you how to make them.

Using the Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ DSP, I made a bunch of different turkeys.

The little pouch to hold the silverware was made from colored printer paper. I used the Greenery Embossing Folder to press the leaf design into it and then added the matching plaid DSP band that matched the turkey on the clothespin to the front.

The Plaid Tidings DSP is so colorful. There are so many colors to choose from in the paper pack. The turkey was made with round labels from the Tasteful Labels Dies for his head and body. His gobbler was punched from the Whale Builder Punch in Real Red Cardstock.

His hat was punched in Basic Black Cardstock from the Snowman Builder Punch. The hatband and buckle were cut by hand with scraps of Gold Foil Sheet and Basic Black Cardstock. And his beak was hand-cut as well from Pumpkin Pie Cardstock using the Paper Snips.

His turkey legs were punched in Early Espresso Cardstock from the Snowman Builder Punch. The banner was stamped on Whisper White Cardstock using Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set in Early Espresso Classic Ink and die cut with one of the Tasteful Labels Dies.

The turkey also got sponged with Crumb Cake Classic Ink and a Stamping Sponge. The Banner was also sponged in the same manner. Of course, the finishing touch to the project was the googly eyes. So cute!

Project number two tonight was a Poinsettia Vellum Purse. It is a piece to display on a table or mantle and has a small string of lights and miniature Christmas ornaments inside it. The lights and ornaments come in different colors and were purchased at the Dollar Tree.

The poinsettia on the outside of the bag was cut from Whisper White Cardstock and sponged using a Stamping Sponge. Choose the ink color that you sponge the Poinsettia with based on the color of lights and ornaments you buy. This particular poinsettia in the picture was sponged with Seaside Spray Classic Ink to match the blue lights I chose. I cut the flower out using the Poinsettia Dies that coordinates with the Poinsettia Petals stamp set. Although there was no stamping on this project, you could easily stamp a sentiment and add it to the outside of the purse.

I am really excited about how well this purse turned out. The purse itself was made from Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper, which is flocked vellum. The lights look so pretty inside it shining around the mini Christmas ornaments. The last thing I added to this project was the Beaded Pearls embellishment that I attached to the middle of the flower using Mini Glue Dots. I hope you try your hand at making one. If you do, let me know in the comments.
