Acorn Card

I saw this adorable project on Jean M's blog and had to try my hand at it right away! She actually got the idea from Aaron Brown. Aaron used a Gypsy to weld two acorns together to create a top fold acorn card. You can watch her video to see how easy it really is! But since I don't have a gypsy or design software, I decided to make mine more like a post card - with a colonial white back, Dreamin' B&T front, and a chocolate layer (cap)!


I added a piece of our dark chocolate striped ribbon with a Designer Brad from our Antiqued Copper collection. So easy and so cute!!! I gave these out as thank you notes to my club on Friday.

I'm working on smaller acorns with the Sonoma papers, cocoa designer ribbon, and gold shimmer brads for place settings at Thanksgiving! I think I'll add a tag with a name on it or something....this is just my prototype - definately need colorful napkins and warm woods and leaves on the table!

Are you incorporating a blessing game or place settings or something creative at YOUR Thanksgiving table this year? I'd love to hear about it!
