Thanksgiving is upon us, so I’m sharing two super-easy punched crafts for your holiday celebration.
These mini paper turkeys are made using just one punch—a scalloped circle—and some scissors, glue, and double-sided tape. That's it! The punch I used is the Martha Stewart Crafts Rose Window Punch All Over the Page. The two-part magnetic punch system lets you punch anywhere on the page. For this project I'm using the scrap scalloped circles it punches out.
You can stick these little turkeys on napkin rings, place cards, cupcake picks, lollipops, and more!
My coworker, the very crafty Lauren Parlato, came up with this sweet and easy paper-plate wreath that she made with the kids at her church. It could be a fun activity to keep kids busy after or before the Thanksgiving meal. She used unbleached paper plates and kraft paper circles cut with a circle cutter and a variety of autumnal punches. Set up a table with some punches, glue sticks, and paper plates, and let your young guests make their own "I'm thankful for" wreaths.
I’m thankful for easy crafts . . . fun craft tools . . . and my family and friends, of course!
Have a great Thanksgiving!!
