Thanks to the Friday Freebie from Paper Popsicles last Friday I was able to get started on some Thanksgiving items.
My little family is ... well... little. Just three of us. Me, my hubby and my son. Our family lives out of state and we don't always have the ability to travel home for Thanksgiving. This year is one of those years. So, in an attempt to make our quiet little dinner something special I put together some fun napkin rings and coordinated name plates using the pumpkin as an embellishment.
I took the Paper Popsicles pumpkin shaped card and edited to be a single element which I cut in both the patterned paper and also a "shadow" layer in white for both the napkin rings and the name plates.
I'm pleased with how they turned out and how simple they were to make. Should our plans for our small dinner change I could easily make additional place settings.
