For this blog post, we will be covering the Cricut Tablescapes Fall & Winter cartridge, which is great for dining room decorations, especially for the holidays.
Name Card and Basket
To finish off the table setting, we have these little name cards. These are super easy to make, the cardstock base is 4.25 x 5.5 then scored in half so they are 4.25 x 2.25 when folded, and then inked the edges brown. This is so easy with a Cricut machine. The inside paper is 4 x 2 and then used a corner rounder to, you guessed it, round the corners, and inked those as well. Finally used the cartridge to cut out the acorn at 2". I did cut it out twice and cut off the bottom part of the lighter brown. Then sanded the lighter brown. I did cut out a bunch of them and used the same acorn for the treat boxes from Wednesday's project and for this one. So that will save you time cutting out more at a time.
Then for this simple design I got a wire basket and filled the bottom with raffia, and cut out the 3D acorns at 2", 3", and 4" just enough to fit on the top of it. These are the same as used for the Banner from Tuesday's project as well, just larger sizes :).
Hope you have enjoyed this cartridge as much as I have, now I have all my decor ready for Thanksgiving dinner.
Tea Time Decoration
So back to business These fun acorns were cut out at 4" using the Tablescapes Fall & Winter. I did cut them out at 2" and they turned out really cute but didn't hold to the cup very well. So I recommend cutting them bigger than the 2". But the small version does work.
Make sure you fold it back well to make it hold better. It's held on by a little triangle piece of paper, so heavier paper works best as well.
Then I finished them off with a little piece of ribbon to match them to the rest of the table decor.
So come back tomorrow and see our final project to finish off this fun fall table setting.
For these fun treat boxes, I used We R paper, the Antique stack (so that all the boxes coordinated together but weren't all the same), and the Cricut Tablescapes Fall & Winter. I cut the box out at 2" and you can fit two on a 12 x 12 sheet of paper.
Then I cut out the acorn two more times one in dark brown and the other on the Cor'dinations brown paper so I could sand it and give it a little more depth to look like an acorn. Then cut the bottom of the acorn off, these were also cut out at 2".
I punched two little holes and used brown and gold ribbon to give them more depth. Added some peanuts and candy corns and it's a fun little treat to enjoy while you're waiting for dinner. I think the kids will love them, and make them a little more patient. :)
For this fun fall banner, I used the Tablescapes cartridge. The larger acorns are cut out at 5" so you can fit all 4 on one 12 x 12 sheet. The smaller acorns are actually the 3D acorns, so they have a little dimension. These are super easy to put together, it cuts a slit halfway on each so you can just hook them together very easily. Then used lots of raffia and ribbon. A very easy and fun way to make fall more festive.
I cut this image out at 2.75" and then wrapped it around the napkin. You could also cut out the acorn at 2.75 and layer it on top. But I used a pretty paper and didn't want to cover it up.
For these, I used the DCWV Natural Paper Stack so all the napkin rings are similar but able to use different sheets of paper.
