PaperCutz Challenge #67

Good morning!  Hard to believe 2 weeks have gone by since my last post.  I had a tough time last week with my health, so I took it off from the challenge.  This week at Papercutz the challenge is to make a card, LO or craft project for Thanksgiving, using buttons and bows, and any colors you'd like. For my project I used a really cute template I got from Adela at PaperCraft Planet to make a chair.

I made the chair base from brown cardstock and then used HOTP papers to decorate.  I also used a Tonic punch to put two leaves in each side of the chair "skirt".  Nesties created the piece on the chair back and you can see the pop dots on the chair seat which is another square of the leaves paper.  These chairs are designed to open from the top or bottom, mine opens from the bottom to put a treat inside.  This one (and 12 others yet to be made) will be my placecards for Thanksgiving dinner, I'll add names in the oval.  I'm going to put after dinner mints in each one.

Please join us this week and if you are the winner you will be put into the drawing for the monthly grand prize!

I spent all of last Saturday at a crop in Gray, Maine to benefit an Equine Rescue group.  I was there to help Cheryl as she brought her store Inspired Designs to the crop.  I was able to finish a few Christmas cards, hopefully I can post pictures of them later today.


  1. What a great idea for placecards! I hope you're feeling better!

  2. Penny, I just love this idea for placecard. Brilliant!!! It's always fun to see what the rest of the DT comes up with. Hope you're feeling better.

  3. Hope you are feeling better now Penny. I've been out of commission with a variety of issues. But! Now I have a new grandson so things are looking up. I love your Thanksgiving Project. You are so talented. I'm glad you decided to share your creations with the rest of the paper crafting world.

  4. Penny, what a cute chair! Awesome idea for Thanksgiving placecards!
