Thanksgiving is always a great time to get together with family and friends and celebrate the blessings in our lives. And like any fun gathering, food is always involved. Some recipes become yearly traditions, while others are soon forgotten. Why not organize your recipes with a seasonal mini album? It’s easy to add or remove recipe from year to year – and to help make planning the feast a little easier. This keepsake would also make a wonderful hostess gift, if you aren’t the one doing all of the cooking.

Hi there Core Fans!
It’s Joann and I am so excited to be here today to share a fun 3D table top decoration which I think is perfect for the upcoming Thanksgiving season for all of my American friends. Being from Canada, we have already celebrated Thanksgiving but every year I remember something a friend on mine that lives in the United States told me… “We let our Turkeys get a bit larger here”. It makes me laugh every time.
As I was thinking about setting the table for Thanksgiving dinner it dawned on me that it would be nice to have some sort of treat at each table setting so the idea of a Fall themed gift box was perfect. The sunflower box was made using the Tim Holtz Kraft Core Shattered Collection and I just love the look of this paper. I decided not to emboss or sand this paper because I wanted a more elegant vintage feel to the box. The top is covered with an embossed layer of Tim Holtz Kraft Core Nostalgic Collection and several more layers to make up the pretty sunflower, all of the layers were however lightly sanded. The center was finished with a pretty vintage metal embellishment.
Sunflower Box Supplies:
- Tim Holtz Kraft Core Shattered Collection
- Tim Holtz Kraft Core Nostalgic Collection
- Sand It Gadget & Dust Buddy
- 3d Sunflower Box Item # 46801 From The Silhouette Store
- Darice Foliage Embossing Folder
- Bling From My Stash
- Liquid Adhesive
- Silhouette Cameo
To make this box follow these steps.
Step 1. Cut all of the pieces from the cardstock of our choice.
Step 2. Assemble the box, emboss the Green Star and using your flower tool gently shape the petals on the lightly sanded Orange and Yellow pieces. Attach the layers for the sunflower and glue to the top of your star box.
Here is a photo of the box open giving you a lovely place for a little something sweet!
Thanks for stopping by for a peek… Have a great day my crafty friends!
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year. I love the warmth of an amazing meal and the gathering of my family each year. It’s just a wonderful time to enjoy each other and remember to give thanks for the blessings my family and I enjoy on a daily basis.
So I like to decorate for Thanksgiving as well. Bring on the visual reminders of gratitude, thankfulness, and even those reminders that some blessings come with a cost. So I wanted something to reflect those sentiments and help me remember to be openly thankful AND giving this season.
This Thankful Banner fits the bill. Since it hangs from a branch, you can hang it anywhere from your front door to the mantel–all you need is a hook, nail, or knob!
Thankful Banner Supplies:
- Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection
- Darice Pearl White Berry Garland
- 1″ Twill Tape
- Small branch
- Hot glue gun
- Glue Dots
Step 1: Start with a piece of muslin-covered cardboard approximately 15″ x 10″. Hot glue the fabric to the back side of the cardboard to get a nice smooth front.
Step 2: Adhere two pieces of twill tape to the back of the cardboard.
Step 3: Cut paper banner, “Thankful” greeting, and leaves from card stock using electronic cutter or craft knife. The greeting was cut from the back side of the card stock for a different color.
Step 4: Adhere greeting to paper banner, and adhere paper banner to your fabric banner at the top and centered.
Step 5: Create different leaf looks. Fold 1/3 of your leaves in half length wise to mimic a leaf stem, then distress. Take the other 2/3 of the leaves and use the back and front sides for different effects. You should now have a variety similar to this. You might want to add a few different colors of leaves.
Step 6: Curl the leaves by rolling them between your fingers. The more you break down the fibers in the paper by rolling, the easier it is to get the shape you want.
Step 7: Cut section of berry garland, and twist into a mini wreath shape. Adhere leaves to the wreath as desired.
Step 8: Adhere wreath to fabric banner.
Step 9: Insert the small branch through the twill tape loops, and hang.

It’s fall! I can’t help but decorate my little heart out when it comes to fall. I love fall colors but I always seem to add a little twist to it. A heathery aqua mixed in with all the other fall colors just speaks perfection to me, so when I started designing this wreath, it ended up with a mix of non-traditional aqua and tried-and-true yellow. And the juxtaposition doesn’t end there. A mix of somewhat predictable leaves combined with stylish medallions makes this wreath modern and straighforward–my favorite look. No matter what colors you choose for your wreath, you’ll love how easy it is to create.
Fall Medallion Wreath Supplies
- Darice 8″ Wreath
- Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection Card Stock
- Darice Burlap Ribbon
- Autumn Leaves
- Straight Pins
Step 1: Wrap burlap ribbon around wreath form, securing the beginning and ends with straight pins.
Step 2: To make medallions, cut strips of card stock 1.5″ x 12″ and score every 1/2″.
Step 3: Fold the card stock accordion style, and sand the edges of the folded card stock.
Step 4: Adhere ends of each card stock strip together to form a ring, and let dry. With the ring on a flat surface, press the top edges inward to create a medallion, and glue the medallion to a scrap of card stock to secure.
Step 5: Secure leaves and medallions to the wreath using straight pins.
Step 6: Secure a piece of ribbon to the back of the wreath using straight pins as a hanger.
And just like that you have a striking wreath. Hang it up and enjoy your creation.
