We're happy to have you on board!
With a little bit of crafty preparation, this table can serve as a snack and activity center to keep the little ones occupied while we slave away in the kitchen...and watch football.
Turkey Leg Place Card
1.To create this seat-saver, trim the top inch or two from a small, paper treat bag using Pinking Shears or Pinking Edgers.
2. Push in the bottom pointed corners and fill, molding and twisting the bag into the right shape. Insert a strip of white cardstock with heart punch at the end into the opening and staple closed.
3. Add a name and a place to reserve.
You can stuff them with filler such as newspaper, or consider pulling double-duty as a goodie bag by instead adding a bag of treats inside. A popcorn ball would be a great shape and size.
"Popcorn Pie" Snack
1. Using a disposable tart pan as a base, fill with goodies and top with a cardstock crust cut with Clouds Paper Edgers around a circle traced from a Circle Shape Template.
2. Bend up the edges and add cut-outs using the Petal by Petal Squeeze Punch. This is enough to resemble a pie, but if you want to go further, run strips of cardstock punched with Scalloped Sentiments Border Punch through a Paper Crimper and hot-glue around rim of pan. The crimping not only adds a pinched-crust feel, it also allows the cardstock strip to mold around the rounded top.
1. Using the Amplify® Mixed Media Scissors cut out square from white cardstock or foam, punch two one-quarter inch holes, and thread onto a straw.
2. Using the Circle Shape Template cut a circle from cardstock, run through the Wave Paper Crimper. Use this for your nautical coaster.
1. Using the Apron Lace Border Punch, punch along each side of a 2" wide strip of cardstock.
2. Accordion-fold at every two scallops and staple at center.
3. Pull each side up to meet in the middle with glue dots. Fan out and add a face and body.
4. Cut out a snowman shape and use as the turkey's body with a pilgrim hat.
5. Add googly eyes, beak and wattle.
Pilgrim Crayon Hat
1. Cut out the bottom of a black paper cup (or just paint a regular white one like I've done her) with a Craft Knife.
2. Hot glue upside-down to a painted chipboard circle traced using the Circles Shape Template.
3. Add a strip of paper for the headband and squares for the buckle.
1. Using cardstock cut out 2 tree shapes. Fold them in half and glued to each other to stand upright. You'll need to cut a root or two from the bottom and a middle branch at the top.
2. Punch out leaves or shapes so each child can write what they are grateful for. (These can be attached using glue dots)
