Pals Fall Flair Hop

(Blog Badge designed by Nicole Watt)

Thanks for joining us for some fun Fall crafting with the Stampin' Pretty Pals! You've probably hopped over from Kerry Willard Bray at Stampgoodness. I'm stop number 17 on the Pals Hop and I'm glad you hopped in! I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find great ideas for Stampin' Up! Fall projects. Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up below and you'll be back on track.

I've made a wallet that holds place cards for Thanksgiving Dinner. Thanksgiving will be here in no time. This would make a fantastic hostess gift for your family gathering. Just let the hostess know ahead of time that you will provide the place cards. I chose to decorate my wallet using the Comfort Cafe designer series paper and the colors Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit and Soft Suede. I stamped the "thanks" sentiment onto Naturals Ivory card stock using Midnight Muse ink.

Inside you see I made place cards by cutting card stock into 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" pieces, scoring them at 1-1/4" and folding. I stamped the flower image from Day of Gratitude, then wrote the names using a Soft Suede Stampin' Write marker. I tucked four of these into each of the three sections of the wallet.

You can find instructions to make the wallet here. (I altered the width of my card stock from 10-3/4" to 4-1/2").

Supplies for Wallet:
Card Stock: Naturals Ivory, Midnight Muse, Soft Suede, Summer Starfruit
Designers Series Paper: Comfort Cafe
Stamps: Day of Gratitude, Perfect Punches
Ink: Midnight Muse, Soft Suede
Punches: Scallop Oval, Large Oval
Embellishments: Midnight Muse 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon
Adhesives: Snail, Sticky Strip, Stampin' Dimensionals
