I love Thanksgiving, this is one time of year that our family gets together to enjoy the company of each other and enjoy the fabulous food prepared by many. We have some excellent cooks in our family, so the food is always great.

Tool Time for this month was all about Thanksgiving and the girls had requested to see some table decor for their tables. I purchased some inexpensive cloth napkins and napkin rings from Wal-Mart, they had so many beautiful colors it was hard to choose. The napkin ring is an very simplistic wooden ring (chocolate chip colored stain), the ring had some holes pierced around the center. In creating the napkin ring accessories and place card I tried to highlight this design, the dots from Three For You worked fabulously.

Project Details
Stamps: Dotted Autumn
Ink: Versamark (heat embossing), More Mustard
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Really Rust, More Mustard and Very Vanilla
Other: Scalloped Circle Punch, 1/4" Circle Punch, Antique Copper Brads, More Mustard Grosgrain Ribbon, Olive Narrow Organdy Ribbon, Vanilla Wide Organdy Ribbon, Copper Cording
Technique: Curled Ribbon

More Details
Curled Ribbon Technique: To obtain the look of the curled ribbon, carefully heat ribbon slowly with heat tool until ribbon begins to wave or curl. Be extremely careful not to overheat the ribbon. I curled the ribbon after everything was assembled, be careful when using the ribbon and cording combination I used, the cording tends to heat much faster than the ribbon.
