Glitter Queens October Hop-Day 3

Happy Wednesday everyone,

I hope you've been hopping along with us this week, the Glitter Queens have created some fabulous projects, full of great ideas that will hopefully inspire you to get crafty! We are all have different styles and I get so many fantastic ideas from the other Glitter Queens! These hops are a great fun way to share what we all have a passion for-Paper Crafting, I'm looking forward to future hops!

For my final project I kept the focus on the Thanksgiving table, this time I choose to make a kraft box (they are currently in the Holiday mini) into my centerpiece. Of course it could also decorate a table any where in the house. And I made some napkin rings to match the favors and name tags.I recently learned how to make the paper roses, and decided to create a couple in the teal paper and used a dauber
to add brown to the edges, I couldn't believe how gorgeous they were and thought these would look great on a kraft box and would match the 'Spice cake' DSP.

I simply added DSP panels to the sides, top and bottom of the box, stamped out some leaves and other images from the 'French Foliage' set. I filled the inside up with mini Hershey's chocolates covered with the 'give thanks' band from the 'Its a wrap holidays' set. I love it so much and I'd like to put it out already but if I did my girls would gobble down the candy before Halloween, lol. May have to refill it a time or two.

To create the napkin rings I began with the backing from a new pk of DSP, then I cut it 1 1/2" x 6". I covered both sides with DSP, then I used a round bottle to roll it, so it wouldn't bend. I overlapped about 1/2" and punched a hole in the center of one end, then match and mark the other side and use a brad to connect. You will need a small piece of cs (I used 3/4"circle punch) to cover the brad on the inside so it doesn't snag your napkin. The other ring is made the same except I punched 2 holes and used ribbon to connect it together. To decorate
them I simple stamped out the images then cut them and attached them to the rings.

I hope you enjoyed my projects for this hop, I had alot of fun creating them, in fact I'm thinking I may start creating some video tutorials.

Now before I forget, for my Blog Candy I am giving away is the 'Kindness Matters' Stamp Set, it's one of my favorites! Just remember to leave a comment for a chance to win.
