Today I am using Spellbinders S4-290 Labels Fourteen die template and the following Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L™ products: MyStik™ Permanent Strips Dispenser, 3D Foam Squares , and Adhesive Sheets.

For my project, I created a festive fall Hostess set for Thanksgiving dinner. The ensemble includes table place cards, a candle centerpiece, and a menu of the day’s yummy goodness!

For the place cards, I scored and folded the largest die cut in order to make it stand up .  I inked the die cut with the name (which I pre-printed on my computer) to coordinate with the colors of the project.


I used the MyStik Permanent Strips Dispenser to attach the patterned paper to the folded brown cardstock.


The label with the name was attached using the 3D Foam Squares, as was the little leaf embellishment.


For the menus, I used the Spellbinders Label die in a vertical manner which fit perfectly with the shape and design of the menu card.


I cut out the menu (which was also preprinted using my computer) using the Spellbinders die, and then cut the patterned paper out using the next larger sized die.  I attached the menu to the patterned paper using 3D Foam Squares  and then attached the patterned paper to the rectangular card using the MyStik™ Permanent Strips Dispenser.


For the paper pieced pumpkin on the top, I stamped the pumpkin image four times: once on brown for the base, and three times on orange in order to cut and piece the image.  I also stamped a leaf on the green.  I then reassembled the image using 3D Foam Squares between each layer.




I adhered the patterned paper strip to the jar using the adhesive sheets- the edge to edge coverage ensures that the paper you adhere to the glass will stay put!


For the front of the candle, I die cut the labels and then stamped “Happy Thanksgiving” on the smaller of the two. Before adhering it (with the MyStik™ Permanent Strips Dispenser.) I also inked it to coordinate with the rest of the papers.  The last step is to embellish the front with stamped leaves (using 3D foam squares)
