Help Us Welcome We R Memory Keepers to the GlueArts Blog!

Happy Monday to you and hopefully everyone remembered to "fall back" this weekend!

We took advantage of the extra hour by packing up all the Halloween decoration, giving the house a good cleaning and bringing out the fall decorations.

There's something about the beautiful colors in the candles, pumpkins and leaves that just make you happy fall has arrived!

This week we think you'll agree that We R Memory Keepers and their Autumn Splendor collection, definitely DO contribute to that feeling!!

Thanksgiving Table Setting
GlueArts Designer: Audrey Pettit


WeRMemoryKeepers Autumn Splendor Collection:

Designer Scrapbook Pad, Textured Cardstock Pad, Layered Chipboard Tags, Layered Chipboard Words, Paper Flower Kit

Kraft Outlet Raw Chipboard and Hang Tag String

7Gypsies Seam Binding
Stampin'Up Grosgrain Ribbon
Clearsnap Ink

1/8" hole punch

*note* edge all paper pieces with brown chalk ink.

1. To create the napkin rings, start by die cutting labels from textured cardstock. Cut smaller labels to nest inside from patterned paper. Adhere together using Glue Arts Perma Tac adhesive.

2. Layer the labels with chipboard embellishments. Add ribbon, string bows, and layered paper flowers for more feminine versions. Keep the decorations more simple for masculine versions.

3. Punch 1/8" holes in the sides of the labels. Bring grosgrain ribbon up through each hole, leaving a small allowance to hang over and enough ribbon in back to slip in a folded napkin.

I threaded my ribbon through one end of the label and then slipped the napkin holder over my napkin before securing the other end of the ribbon. This will allow you to leave enough room without guess-work.

4. Thread buttons with hang tag string and adhere over the ribbon on each side of the napkin holders using Glue Arts Extreme Adhesive Squares.

5. For the Thankful plaque, cut two pieces of 6" x 10" raw chipboard and two pieces of 6" x 10" textured cardstock. Adhere cardstock to the chipboard using Perma Tac adhesive.

6. Cut two pieces of 5" x 9" patterned paper. Adhere to the centers of the chipboard pieces.

7. Cut a 6" x 5" piece of contrasting patterned paper. Score in half along the 5" side.
8. Place the two chipboard pieces together, right sides facing out. Using the 1/8" hole punch, punch two holes at the top and secure the pieces together with brads.

9. Embellish the folded topper with scallops cut from the patterned paper. Adhere seam binding across the topper using Glue Arts Ribbon Adhesive. Embellish with chipboard leaves, a big bow, and another layered paper flower. Slide topper onto the chipboard base. You can secure it if you wish, or simply leave it loose for easy storage.

10. Cut the "Things I Am Thankful For" strip from the patterned paper. Cut it in half to fit and attach using Glue Arts U Cut It Foam Adhesive.

11. Print things you are thankful for onto texture cardstock and cut into banner strip. Attach to the bottom of the plaque using U Cut It Foam Adhesive. Add number stickers from the Designer Scrapbook Pad.

1. Make paper pinwheels from textured cardstock by accordion folding 1x12" strips and 1.5x12" strips. Hot glue ends together then hot glue small paper circles to hold pinwheel shape in place.

 2. Adhere twine to the cakside of the pinwheels for the "Thankful" word. Apply more paper circles to cover the hot glue and hold in place.
 3. Adhere Cardstock letter sticker to the center of the pinwheels and add other desired embellishments to the flag banner pieces (cut 5 flag pieces.)
4. For flag banner, punch holes to string twine through and add 4 paper pinwheels in between each flag.
5. Add ribbon roses to the pinwheels for the flag banner piece and apply stickers as desired to each flag or layer flower pieces and add brads to centers.
