Happy Fall-i-Days from Reverse Confetti


Well, welcome to Day 2 of our Happy Fall-i-Days online event from REVERSE CONFETTI!  It's the second day of our 3 day event showcasing some STUNNING holiday inspired projects.  Our second day's theme is Thanksgiving and the Confetti Crew has gone above and beyond to inspire y'all to take your Reverse Confetti stamps and dies to the next level!  We have projects galore to share that will help you get your "crafting" cap on for the upcoming holidays.  At the end of this post, I'll have a link list that you can use to see all the designer's projects.
Ok, and off we go as I share my Thanksgiving project---I absolutely love FALL and all the warm cozy decor that goes along with it.  I knew that this Thanksgiving project would be right up my alley, so I was inspired to create a pretty "tablescape" place setting using some of my Fall themed REVERSE CONFETTI stamps and dies (along with a few home decor pieces!).


There's 4 hand crafted elements that I made for this and everything else I either had on hand already or bought on sale (I fell in love with the tablecloth from Kohl's).  I'll show them to y'all in the order I created them!


I made the nameplate block first (Jen gave it to me--it's a wooden block/clip with some Christmas stuff on it which I covered with paint and paper) and embellished it with some fake little acorns.  Then I simply made a tag from the THANKS TAG Confetti Cuts die. I added the pumpkin stamp from the PUMPKIN PATCH set and cut it out using the PUMPKIN PATCH matching Confetti Cuts. I then added the sweet little flag banner from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts that I stamped Lindsie's name on from the LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS stamp set.  I stuck in into the little clippie and it was done!  These would be super easy to mass-produce.


The next thing I made was the cute treat cup with kisses in it.  I was fooling around with other ideas to utilize the new FROSTED PILLOW BOX, and decided to cut one in half to see if it would morph into something!  One side wouldn't stand up on its own, but 2 would if I clipped them together!  So a little treat container was born.  I decorated a plain clothespin with paper and paint and added the cute "sign" to one side using the THANKFUL PRETTY PANELS and GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts. I added the little flag bottom from aqua from the FLAG TRIO Confetti Cuts.  I'm pretty sure I squealed when I figured this out and it turned out so cute!  Did y'all hear me?


Thirdly was a project that was still fresh on my mind from our Little Somethings Workshop at The Little Blue House a couple of weekends ago.  I created a pocket treat holder for that event as a fun stocking stuffer, only this time, I widened it so that it could more easily hold a fork and spoon (not quite a knife, because my knife handle was too large, but you could widen it even more to accommodate this.).  Also, don't count off on my table setting skills here, I had to adjust from what tradition dictates--a little artistic license!  Anyway, it's simply folded paper to create a pocket that I embellished with the patterned paper, ribbon, an acorn and the cute TAG ME flag banner stamped with some words from the new WINTER WORD COORDINATES stamp set.   Easy peasy and you could get several from just a few sheets of paper.


The last thing I made was the EASIEST and just completed the project perfectly!  I had gotten the cute wire heart at Micheal's not knowing what I would end up doing with it, but found it was a fun addition to my place setting right in the middle of the plate and could act as a sweet something for your guests to take home.  So I cut a couple more TAG ME banners, stamped the WINTER WORD COORDINATES again and also cut another THANKFUL PRETTY PANELS and snipped out the "thankful" word so that I could add it to the aqua tag and tied it along with another acorn to the heart.  By the way, to tie these things on, I've been using the new twine that is available at Reverse Confetti.  It comes in lots of colors, but this one is the SOLID NATURAL TWINE.  


So what do y'all think?  Wouldn't you love to have a beautiful table that you decorated with some handmade 
items?  This project in all didn't take near as long as yesterday's, and you have a little more time to get started.  Whether you use all these ideas or just one, I hope I inspired you today!
