One last Thanksgiving Project : )

Thanksgiving Muslin Bag 001

“Bring nature indoors.”

-Susan Branch

Good Morning from Stamping Peace.  We’ve brought a little nature indoors within this little muslin bag…it is filled with popcorn kernels!   The leaves and acorn, reminders of nature, are stamped with Stampin’ Up!’s “Wonderfall” stamp set in Crumb Cake, Cajun Craze and Early Espresso Inks.   The sentiment is from the “Truly Grateful” stamp set and is inked with Early Espresso.   The ribbons are soft suede and early espresso, and the Cajun craze button is tied with some linen twine.  Everything is attached with glue dots.  Won’t these be beautiful favors at each plate on the Thanksgiving table?  I’m so excited about how cute they turned out!   This is our last Thanksgiving project for this year, next week we’ll begin our Christmas projects.  : )

The last Thanksgiving movie that we have in our family, “Colonial House,”  will carry us through the month because it is 8 hours long!  It’s one of our traditions to watch it together every year.   It was filmed in Maine!  : )

I’m off to prepare for a private Stamping Party being held this evening.  Have a great day and a great week-end!

  1. I love this little bag. The leaves are so pretty and it’s a wonderful idea to use popcorn kernels. Can’t wait to see the Christmas designs.

    • Hi Brenda. I just did a Christmas themed private party tonight with brand new stampers. The ladies had the Christmas music going, candy canes hanging from the chandelier and they were having a grand old time!!! : ) I’ll post a Christmas project on Monday. Have a great week-end!

  2. That is an awesome little bag. I love the movie, I know a couple of people in it. They really research the history and from the native perspective as well. Thanks for sharing that, I’ll have to watch it. Terry

    • Hi Terry! It is a little bag, 4×6″ I think. Someone told me at a stamping event tonight that it looks a lot bigger on the blog. We’ll have to chat about Colonial House on our road trip. We recognize some of the Native people in it from a visit to Plimouth Plantation where they work at their “regular” jobs. See you Sunday!
