Thanksgiving: Dressing the Bird and the Table

Happy KSS Monday!

Getting ready for Thanksgiving?

I have a fun (and quick) stamping idea for dressing up the holiday table, using

Turkey Napkin Rings stamping with 3 Step Turkey Trot.

You say you are feeding an army?

No worries, my next post will show you how to multi-step an entire gang (or rafter) of turkeys!

(update:  Multi Step Stamping 105 Tutorial – Digital Die Cutting & Mass Production)

The napkin ring is a simple  1-1/2″ x 6-1/2″ strip of cardstock with tabs at the end to interlock (see below for link for a pdf template). A few wraps around with raffia ribbon and tie a knot. Fray and crumple the ends and position off to one side. Adhere turkey with favorite strong adhesive (I used Score-Tape). – Done!

I stumbled across this 2 great sites for different napkin folds: Napkin FoldingGuide.com & 28 Creative Napkin Folding

With setting a decorative Thanksgiving table in mind, I stamped this 100% linen hot roll cover with Multi Step Big Leaves & Palette Inks.

After I pre-washed, air-dried and ironed the fabric, I placed the corner I was going to stamp, on top of a piece of chipboard/cardboard. The chipboard/cardboard absorbs any excess ink that soaks through the linen to the back and helps to prevent the ink from bleeding.

I did not bother to mask the overlapping leaves. I stamp the lightest leaf ( yellow) first and the darkest left (red) last. That way it wouldn’t show that I overlapped the images. 🙂

Overall, this project was quick and took about 15-20 mins. to stamp. After the ink completely dries, heat set both sides with a hot iron.  For more information about stamping on fabric, please see these two past posts – post 1 & post 2.

 Thanks for stopping by and I hope your Thanksgiving Day is wonderful & yummy!

Please check out what the KS Crew has cooked up for you too!

Happy Thanksgiving wishes from the Kitchen!

triangle-treat-boxI came across this fabulous triangle box on SEI lifestyle blog (which includes a template too) and I knew it would make the perfect place card for my family’s Thanksgiving table. SEI calls this box a “Piece of Cake Box”, and it really is a piece of cake to make! 😀 I was able to make 8 in no time! Then I stuff each with 3 Lindt Lindor Truffles (yum!…like there isn’t enough to eat! LOL!!!!). 😀

Kitchen Sink’s Project of the Month for October

turkey-soapHey!

Where did October go???!!!!

I do feel a bit like the White Rabbit in Alice in Wonderland … I am SOOOO late!!! Hopefully you all won’t hold my tardiness against me? 😀

October’s Project of the Month has been simmering in my head for the whole month … and here it is!

SOAP!!!! Yup! Stamping and Glycerin Soap!

Soap making with glycerin soap is fun and easy … easy enough to even do with kids … provided there is adult supervision. 😀 But, I started to wonder, how could I make soap and bring stamping into the mix?

My answer …. laminate the stamped card stock! 😀

How nice to make your own guest soap or bring some home made soap as a hostess gift during this Holiday Season? 😀

So I pulled out my soap making supplies along with my stamps, 3 Step Turkey Trot and 3 Step Autumn Squirrel and got to work making soaps I can use during the Thanksgiving holiday.

Materials:

Paper: Shimmery White – SU!

Inks: Step #1 So Saffron, Step #2 Creamy Carmel, Step #3 Chocolate Chip.

Here is a tutorial on how I made these soaps. [DOWNLOAD PDF VERSION HERE]

If you give it a try, please let me know how your soaps turned out. I would love to see what you come up with. Thanks for looking! 😀
