This Week's Challenge - Think Outside The Box

Thanksgiving Day will soon be here and families will gather together for their family get together. Selma and I wanted to give you some ideas of things that you can do to create a beautiful dinner table.  If you aren't the hostess this year, perhaps you might want to offer to do some table decorations.

Selma's Autumn Candle Ring makes a beautiful Centerpiece or a nice Hostess Gift.

I made the napkin ring using Cheery Lynn Italian Doily for the base, Tim Holtz Mini Pumpkin die, leaves from both Cheery Lynn and Tim Holtz.  The mini pumpkin is standing up.

This is a view of the Napkin Ring without the napkin.

Pumpkin Place Card made with Sizzix Mini Pumpkin Die and Mini Leaf Die.

 Thinking outside the box with your dies.  I used Heartfelt Creation Lily Die to cut the Turkey Feathers, Spellbinder Circle Die for the body,  the Tim Holtz Snowman's Carrot nose die for the beak and JustRite's Thanksgiving Stamp for the Give Thanks.

Selma Made this adorable box for a loaf of Pumpkin Bread to take to  her neighbor.

We have a fun challenge for you this week at Joan's Gardens. We want to see different ways you can use your stamps and dies to create any Autumn/Thanksgiving item other than a card. Many times we don't think out of the box and to use our stamping products for things other than cards.
