Hi! It's Christine from iamcocoasmom.com sharing a new addition to my Thanksgiving table created in Design Space and cut on my Explore.
Several years ago, I made place name holders from the
Thanksgiving Cricut cart. They were much admired and a couple even
disappeared! It's way past time for an update to my Thanksgiving table
and so I went looking for ideas on Pinterest. I found some very cute
teepee holders and was reminded of the teepee cards I made last year.
Aha! I had seen an easy peasy teepee card on Collette's Digi-re-doo-dah blog that I was sure I could create in Design Space and here it is: -
basically a 6 inches wide by 3 inches deep rectangle with a 1 inch
triangle welded on the bottom edge. There are score lines from the
center of the top edge of the rectangle to the triangle point, to one of
the bottom angles of the triangle and to both bottom corners of the
rectangle. The panels are triangles welded together and you need two
large and two small panels. I glued the 2 small panels and one of the
large ones in between the score lines as shown.
next step is to apply glue to the top edges and fold into a pyramid
shape. The second large panel was adhered on the glued side to conceal
pushing in the score line between the two small panels, the teepee will
fold flat (well, flatish!) for mailing or storage. Easy peasy!
the fun part - embellishing! The "Give Thanks" sentiment comes from
Artbooking, and the wheat and feather cuts come from the Thanksgiving
cart. I left the tips of the feathers unglued so that I could insert
the place card. The leaves are cut with dies from Sunny Studios because I just love the added definition to the edge that you get from a little steel die.
just two of the place card holders. I'm eschewing matchy-matchy this
year and making them with different designer papers for the panels. (I
learned the hard way not to use a paper with an obvious one way
pattern!!!!) And, if one or two disappear again, I won't be scrambling
to find a piece of paper to match the rest!
It was simple to make a larger card sized version of the teepee place
name holder and I'm glad to have this easy peasy template in my DS
files. Thank you, Sheila for allowing me to share today. : ) Christine
