365 Projects in 365 Days

My previous New Year's resolution was to be creative everyday with my Cricut, but since I've started my blog 2 years ago I have come across so many new exciting things like stamps, digi stamps, non-Cricut projects using chipboard, stickers, etc. and now my addition is the Silhouette Cameo. I will be posting many pictures and tutorials of all my projects. I will be making scrapbook layouts, cards, tags, embellishments and altered items. My goal is to create 365 projects in 365 days.

#232 Thanksgiving Blog Hop /Napkin Ring Holders

Hi everyone!! Good morning and welcome to the Thanksgiving Blog Hop hosted by the wonderful Sylvia from http://www.bellascrapbookdesigns.blogspot.com/ if you are here from Sylvia's blog you are in the right spot! This is going to be a very fun and exciting blog hop because it's all about table decor for any Thanksgiving dinner or party!

For my project I wanted to make something simple for Thanksgiving that I could mass produce, since we may be celebrating Thanksgiving for the first time ever at my house this year woo-hoo.... the pressure's on LOL! So if it's going to be at my house things are going to be done my way, meaning Cloth Napkins!!! Yep, I use cloth napkins all the time in my house, I guess I just got tired of buying napkins all the time and wasting money on something that is going in the trash. I figured what the heck I can do cloth napkins they are great for the environment and affordable too! All I have to do to clean them is wash them whenever I wash my towels easy peasy!

To make these very awesomely cute napkin rings I recycled!! I have been saving T.P. rolls for a very long time thinking I would some day make a t.p. roll mini album well I haven't yet so napkin rings will do!

First make sure all of the t.p. is off of the roll, then cover with cute paper the size was 4 x 2.5inches,then I cut the t.p. roll in have so each piece is 2 x 2.5 inches. I bought these adorable pilgrims from My Grafico they are on SALE right now!!! I printed them on white cardstock the size of a wallet size photo (you can print up to 9 per page), then cut them out with my scissors by hand. Once I was done cutting I placed one pop dot underneath the pilgrims for some cute dimension. This will be the cutest Thanksgiving dinner I've ever been to LOL!

BLOG CANDY!!!!! Woo-hoo!! I am giving away 1- Heidi Grace Christmas clear stamp set to 1-Lucky Follower just leave me a comment telling me your favorite Thanksgiving food or desert! mine is HAM!! I will announce a random winner on Monday Nov. 28th Good Luck!

*** I hope I have you some inspiration on what to do with your empty T.P. rolls you've been holding on too LOL! I am excited to try this I think I will make them for every holiday and party that I have, they would be so cute for Christmas, B-days and Valentine's day awww!***

Just a reminder please stop by my blog tomorrow (Sunday if you get a chance I will be in one more hop this weekend I made a fabulous Christmas banner for a children's hospital!)

Chriss America Real said...

Oh my gosh! I am having a fit over these napkin rings! So cute! My favorite Thanksgiving food has to be my husbands homemade apple pie. It is soooo good!


THERESA said...

This is super, as i saw the header in google reader, my mind immediately went to t.p. rolls, and voila, there you are , absolutely great and just had an idea, if you added some gesso 1st, before sticking the paper, that would make it stronger, also you can just stick a piece of magnet on holder and image and swap around as you need it for different occasions. I made a pencil holder also with rolls, came out real good, tfs!!
lotsa luv

No one cooks like my mother - and her mashed potatoes are to die for. The whole time we were growing up. she was the potato lady for family dinners. Honestly though, sit me down with one of her pumpkin pies and a big tub of Cool Whip, and I am a happy camper. Thanks for the generous giveaway. I love classic Christmas stamps !
