Ok, I admit it, I LOVE fall....it is my favorite season! And then, after Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday, Christmas!
So, I have been thinking Fall and Thanksgiving all week....and that is what I was working on...all week!
I took the Robin's Nest Glitter Leaf double sided paper and trimmed it down to fit the sides. I kept the leaf paper on the long sides, and used the opposite side for the short ones.
I punched holes in the top and bottom corners and tied them with green raffia. I trimmed the ends short and on one side (the side that will be on display) I covered the holes with Chipboard leaves (and they are gorgeous! LOVE that they are edged with glitter).
Gold Glitter Letter Stickers to put THANKFUL on a Glitter Gold Journaling Block. I used Tim Holtz Distress ink in Vintage Photo to edge the journaling block.
I tied a piece of dyed seam binding to the top for a handle.
On the inside of the holder, I cut a piece of the Glitter Leaf double sided CS and put it on the bottom (to be sure none of the silverware slides thru).
The best part? I can untie the raffia and attach Christmas patterned CS to the utensil holder after Thanksgiving!
Thanks for looking!
