{Giving Thanks} Thanksgiving Project Cut it Up!

Hi Crafters,

This challenge over at Cut it Up is all about Thanksgiving.  Be sure to link up your Thanksgiving project using a die cut!

I love setting a pretty table! It's in my genes, my Grandmother and my mom both had a knack for table decor.  I decided to make some place markers for my mom's table.  I used the cartridge Flower Shoppe to cut these maple leaves at 2.5 inches. 
I outlined the leaves using a brown cricut marker.

I used the Martha Stewart score board to score the leaves in half.

I folded on the score line and put ATG glue down the side and assembled them together with the fold going in.

I used a gold pen to write the names on the side.

I had some left over strips from my paper so I trimmed the strip down to 2x5.5 to make napkin rings. I glued a matching leaf over the seam.  I'm so looking forward to a beautiful Holiday season filled with family and many blessings!
