Thanksgiving Table Decor: Blessed and Thankful Silverware Holders

*This post does include affiliate links, I may or may not make commission off of these links but all opinions are 100% mine and are 100% honest*

So excited to have you all with me this week! I’ve got some really fun projects that I made using my Cricut Explore machine that you can follow along and make too! This month for the Cricut Design Star Contest the theme was “Celebrations” and our team chose to have the theme “On the Table and Dreaming”. What is that, you ask? Well, we wanted to explore different ideas that you can put on your table throughout the year…from baby showers to holidays and everything in between.

I chose to do a Thanksgiving table and I’m really excited about how it all came together! I have  a few different ideas for you, so I hope you’ll come back each day to see them!

Isn’t that so fun and cheerful?!

First off, we are going to talk about the Blessed and Thankful Silverware Holders.

They are SUPER easy to make and require the following:

Cricut Explore

Blessed and Thankful Design File

Paper in 2 colors & glue!

That’s it!

To use, I opened up the files I designed  in Cricut Design Space.

Get it sized to where you want it and cut it out.

After taking off the outside (with the words), proceed to cut the insert.

Finish by folding the outside and gluing the insert on to the back of the the front. Glue the two sides together and you are done!

The file comes with both the Thankful version:

and the Blessed version:

Aren’t those SO fun?!

Put your silverware into the holders and place on top of a napkin on the plate. By being able to use any color, you can really personalize these to fit into your own decor and settings.

I LOVE the thought of decorating my table and adding reminders (Blessed and Thankful) to remember just how I am feeling on that day. Of course you could use these for other things too, think “Thank you” dinners or celebrations such as Baptisms, Anniversaries, etc.

To make this project SUPER easy, use your Cricut Explore machine..it is SO easy to use and make your favorite projects in just minutes!

Mom Tags Necklace {Cricut Design Star Round 2} free printable

Cricut Design Space Star

I am so excited to show you my first project today for the Cricut Design Star..ROUND 2! First of all, let me say how amazing the Cricut Explore is..I have been having so much fun playing with it for the last little bit.  Now on to the project.

Our group chose Military as the theme for the Fashion/Gear week. I have to be REALLY honest. I had to stretch my brain to think of something to do. A few days ago I was with my kids and just thinking about how much I love to have them with me all of the time. I love our time together so I thought I’d make a fun little Mom Tags Necklace (instead of Dog Tags) with my kids names on them to wear around.

You guys, this machine is amazing! I designed these mini dog tags up and cut them out, but the best thing about this machine is that I also, at the same time, had it draw the names and designs that I wanted on it. Look at how cute they are:

 I love seeing their names there and seeing them reminds me how lucky I am to be their mom.

You can see the size I made them while they are in my hand and I think they would even be cute smaller as well! And the best thing about the Explore is that you can design them in Cricut Design Space and make them any size you want!

I cut them out on a really thick and shiny silver cardstock and cut one for the back of each as well.

I glued them together and then I took a layer of clear vinyl and cut the dog tag shape out again and placed it right on top on the front and back. I finished the sides with a quick silver marker run over them and I’m just in love with how they turned out!

I also thought these could be super cute for birthday parties (think boy’s party favors) or even cute “best friends” necklaces for little girls…the possibilities are endless!

The directions are simple, download, print and cut and then put together any way you would like. I like clipping mine together and putting a few layers of mod podge on top to hold them all together, but you could also  sew them, bind them,etc.

Then just fill in all of your friends and family’s birthday and you will never forget again. ;)
