JustRite Thanksgiving Ideas

This week we will be showing you how to use your JustRite Products to design a fabulous table setting for your Thanksgiving festivities. Today we are featuring an Autumn Centerpiece designed by Angela Barkhouse. Last Christmas Splitcoast stampers had a tutorial on how to make a treat box out of paper. Angela took this concept and gave it a twist by adding an empty paper towel holder to the center of the treat box - transforming the treat box into a centerpiece.

For the basic instructions on how to create this treat box from 3 shees of 12 x 12 sheet of paper-

We used Cinnamon Treaures cardstock from WorldWin paper as our base and then cut 4 - 3" squares of Autumn Plaid (fold diagonally and cut into triangles(8)). Next cut out 4- 3" squares of Natures Patchwork. For complete instructions on how to construct the treat box visit:

Before you assemble your box, add the ribbon trim (May Arts) around the top edge of the box sides. Cut an empty paper towel roll to a 6" height. (note a empty toilet paper roll is to short).
Wrap the roll with American Traditions Autumn Plaid. Glue this to the center of the treat box. Next take a piece of ribbon and thread it through the holes in each side and tie it together.

After you have designed the basic treat box use your JustRite Stamps to design embellishments for each side of the box. Using Times Roman Font Ensemble (JB-08060) and the Harmony Classic Circle II Stamp Ensemble (JB-08120), spell out “AUTUMN’S PALETTE”, A FESTIVAL OF FALL COLORS”,

“HARVEST OF MEMORIES”, and “SHADES OF AUTUMN” onto ivory cardstock using Versamagic Red Magic and Brilliance Pearlescent Ivy. Alternate the designer borders from this set on your images.

Die cut each stamped image using Spellbinders circle Nestabilities. Then die cut 2 mats from golden rod cardstock (World Win) and 2 mats from olive green cardstock using Spellbinders circle scallop Nestabilities.

Adhere one stamped image to each of the 4 sides of the box.
Insert some Fall Foliage and you have a wonderful Fall centerpiece.
