In the spirit of Thanksgiving we decided to pick TWO winners from last week's recipe challenge! First, congrats to Nicole Pomeroy who did a fun twist like Jennifer Gallacher and created a "Recipe for Disaster" layout:

Thanks to all who played along in the recipe week challenge!

To wrap up Thanksgiving Place Cards week, Paige Evans (that's me!) made a trio of turkey-shaped place cards that can be fun for the whole family to create together:   Turkey Place Cards by Paige Evans

I love "hands on" (pun intended!) projects. To make these place cards for yourself:

1. Trace each family member's hand onto a piece of scratch paper, cut out, then trace onto the back of your selected patterned papers. I chose a different piece of red, orange, yellow, green, and brown patterned paper for each person. 

2. Cut out each hand from each patterned paper, layer them together, spread them out, then glue them in place. 

3. Cut a strip of brown cardtock, wrap into a loop, then hot glue to the bottom of the hands.

4. Cut out turkey "bodies" from gray cardstock, add details like eyes, a beak, and gobbler from scraps of colored cardstock, then hot glue to the front.

5. Create name banners by applying rub on letters to white triangles, glue to a thin piece of brown cardstock, then adhere to the turkey. Done!

And now for your challenge:

Challenge s 
1. The place card must be posted to an online gallery or blog with American Crafts in your supply list.
