Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and we are thankful for Amy’s creativity and this elegant table setting she’s sharing with us today!
 
Wishing you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Tonic Studios – we are so thankful for your support!

These punches seem to add a bit of elegance to everything, but this was one project that didn’t take nearly as long as it looks. With the holidays approaching time is valuable – come take a peek at what you can do in no time flat!

Tonic Punches: Multi Detail Butterfly, Mini Punch Leaf 1, Simplicity Pattern Daisy Strip, and Simplicity Pattern Dotty Border.
Other Supplies: 3 Colors of coordinating cardstock, 2 patterned papers (Teresa Collins Giving Thanks Line), adhesive, trimmer.
 
I just started punching out a bunch of borders and strips and layered them together. These two Simplicity punches work beautifully together! To get the border on both edges, I just cut my strip and then punched the other side – it gives it a very pretty and finished look to the projects. The finished menu is 5.5″ x 7.5″ and I went down in quarter increments for the inner layers. The strip width will be determined on the amount of space on your menu. I chose to use the butterfly – I love the elegant look of the butterfly, but wanted to give it some fall flair by layering the mini leaf punch on it.  These projects only took me about an hour to do – and what a fun addition to our Thanksgiving table – time well invested!

Jackie used the Tonic Border System and two Border PunchesFall Leaf and Maple Leaf, and the Simplicity Pattern Doily Border 767 for the border. The stamp is from Stampendous, the leaves on the stamp are colored with Copic markers, and she placed a piece of Basic Grey Indian Summer patterned paper behind the leaves.

Just beautiful! Thanks for sharing Jackie!
