Thanksgiving - Part 3

There are so many ways to add special touches to Thanksgiving....and here are a couple more.
For these two projects I used Thanksgiving Tags from Scrapping With Lisa Designs a division of Sunsational Stamps .  
The cutting files are SVG, PDF, JPEG, EPS, DXF, and PNG, and if you don't have a Cricut Explore, Cameo, or Silhouette, you can cut them out by hand ... which is what I did for this project.

I printed and cut the tags (you can make them whaever size works for you), then gave them a little sprakle with glitter gel pens.  On this particular tag I also added a burlap flower and black gem.  I used a hole punch to make the hole to string the rafia through.  I wish we had cloth napkins to do this with, but since we don't I just wrapped the silverware in a paper napking and folded the top edges down.  Then I wrapped rafia around the napkin a few times and attached the tag and tied a bow.  To make it extra special you could right each person's name on the tag, or write something special like 'Give Thanks".  I think napkin rings or napkin ties make things seem a little more formal and special.
The other items seen in the one pictures can be found here on my blog...they are from Thanksgiving - Part 1, and Thanksgiving - Part 2

When I think of Thanksgiving I also think of the leftovers that get sent home with guest....or maybe even a pie you take to a friend....and I thought these tags would be an awesome way to add a little something special to it.

Pictured are the other 2 tags that come with the set.  On these I also used glitter gel pens, as well as a few Autumn leaves I had left over from a Fall card I made.  I did a YouTube video on the technique I use and you can find it HERE
