hi bloggers! as the days tick away one day closer to thanksgiving it seems my creativity is holding on to every aspect of fall holiday. check out my illuminated autumn place cards idea over at the ranger blog today. thanks for all of your comments about the gilded glassine - a cool technique for sure that can be used year round on so many things. today i had to share another fun idea i came up with using the paper rosettes. i've been working on "perfecting" my rosette skills making it easier than ever to create these cool paper elements. so today i'm sharing a brand new video showing my latest tips and tricks to making rosettes followed by step by step tutorials to create these "quirky turkeys"...
if you feel you've run out of time before the big day to make these little guys, trust me when i say they don't take much time at all. this thanksgiving, as we acknowledge all that we’re thankful for, it’s also a time when we get together with family and friends. here’s an idea to use these adage tickets on your holiday table to spark some creative conversation. the definition of adage tickets reads: a word that embodies a common observation... place a different word at each setting and then throughout the meal, go around and ask each person to use their word to express their own “common observation”...we just might have more to be thankful for than we realized...t!m

step 10: download my quirky turkey template here and print on to sticky-back canvas in printer (note: you don't have to print this on canvas, you can simply print it on cardstock if you don't want the fabric).
