Reverse Confetti/ Happy Fall-idays!/ Day Two

Welcome to our Fall-idays Event with the Reverse Confetti crew. Every year we like to take few days to share some creative ideas for the upcoming holidays. The fun started yesterday with the Halloween/Fall theme so be sure to check it out if you missed it. Today we are showing you some Thanksgiving Ideas.
Jen's got all the details over on the RC Blog
She also included a super sweet shopping deal just for the occassion! 

I love a good sale! 

My family is really laid back and easy going, the holidays aren't fancy or stuffy....well, maybe stuffy, like your pants cuz we EAT a lot. lol  I guess I'm trying to say we aren't formal when it comes to holiday dinners. I did however think it would be fun to include a sweet little gifty at each place at the table and mark each seat with a name plate. There is always lots to do to get ready, so I kept this super simple. 

I used the new Bag & Tag Creator Confetti Cuts. I cut two, in Rust card stock and then add the custom leaf designs using Fall Foliage (yes, one of my FAVORITE RC sets, right now. I just can't stop using it). I used Rust, Wine, and Dark Roast inks for my leaves.  Once I was done stamping, I scored the bottoms at about 1.25 inches and adhered them together. I then trimmed off the pinking edge of the front panel and scored the back one just below the decorative edge so I could fold it over the top to create the bagged look for my Trial Mix treat.  I added a strip of designer paper from the Abundant Autumn 6x6 paper pad along the top of the front flap. The trial mix I just added to a cello baggie and slid it into the treat tent I created. Love it! 

To finish it off I used some Sand card stock and cut one of the rounded tags from the Bag & Tag Creator Confetti cuts. I stamped a sentiment from Fall Foliage in Midnight ink and then stamped a few more leaf images onto Cloud White card stock in Wine and Rust inks, I used the Fall Foliage Confetti Cuts to cut them out. I punched a hole in the top of the finished bag and tied on the tag with some ribbon and twine. 

I stamped and cut out a bunch of leaf images and was trying to think of more ways to use them. I wanted to use the awesome stitched square piece from the Bag & Tag Creator Confetti Cut set, and then it hit me! I'll use the negative piece for a name plate. It's the perfect size, if you score it in half. Simple hand write the names and add a few leaf images and tie on some twine. 

TIP: to speed the process and even use less card stock, you can use the square die to cut out a window on your treat tent and use THAT negative piece to create your name card. I just wanted a contrasting color to match the round tag, so I went with Sand. It's completely customizable to YOUR hearts desire. Have fun with it!

Ok. That's it for me today. I'll be back tomorrow with our Christmas Theme. 
For now, follow me to the rest of the Design Team that is hopping along today.
