Happy Thanksgiving from OMC!

Thursday, November 22, 2012

We here at Oh My Crafts want to wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Most of All
Thanksgiving Day brings to mind
the blessings in our lives
that usually go unnoticed:
a home that surrounds us
with comfort and protection;
delicious food, for pleasure
in both eating and sharing;
clothes to snuggle up in,
books and good entertainment
to expand our minds;
and freedom to worship our God.
Most of all we are thankful
for our family and friends,
those treasured people
who make our lives extra special.
You are part of that cherished group.
On Thanksgiving, (and every day)
we appreciate you.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Walnut Stain and Rusty Hinge

Bo Bunny: Apple Cider Clear Stamp Set
Scallop Edge Punch

2. Cut a square out of the Bo Bunny Apple Cider paper to fit the front of the box, cut a second square that is slightly smaller out of the Bazzill Cardstock fall color of your choice.  Mount the smaller Bazzill square in the center of the Apple Cider square so that you can see the Apple Cider border peeking out. Ink edges of the squares. Mount the squares on the front of the box. 

3. Use the stamps from the stamp kit to create embellishment pieces. Stamp them on Apple Cider paper or Bazzil cardstock or any coordinating scraps you happen to have. In this project I had some corrugated/fluted kraft scraps that I used to embellish some of the note cards.
4. Cut out the images, ink the edges and layer on the front of the box and embellish note cards.

5. Take twine, wrap around box.

6. Make note cards out of Apple Cider paper and Bazzill cardstock, size appropriately so that they will fit inside of the bag. I embellished the note cards with pieces I stamped and a scallop edge punch.

7. Let your family and friends write what they are thankful for and save memories for years to come.
