Thanksgiving Invitations 2014

thanksgiving invitation with Paper Source acorn kitThanksgiving crept up on me this year. My mind has been occupied with other things and I didn’t have any real inspiration for an invitation. So, I went with leftovers…fitting, eh?

A few years ago, I made our Thanksgiving place cards with this Acorn kit from Paper Source. I had some leftovers, which I saved and used as a garland or something last year. Anyway, one acorn got a new life as an invitation. I typed out a basic note on vellum and cut it out with a circle punch. Then I tied the vellum on with a little gold and white twinethanksgiving invitation with Paper Source acorn kit and vellum envelopeI used a vellum envelope embellished with some squirrel and leaves washi tape and I used one of my “vintage” Thanksgiving stamps (a purchase from the Stamp King of Chicago.) vintage Thanksgiving stampSeriously, that stamp is a cornucopia of postal goodness. (If you’re interested, here is a little article that shows the USPS Thanksgiving stamp offerings.) thanksgiving invitation with Paper Source acorn kit and vellum envelopeHere it is, all packed up.

      Hosting is a lot of work but SO MUCH FUN! Thanksgiving really is my favorite holiday…don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas, but Thanksgiving holds a special place in my heart because it’s all about gathering and eating without the pressure of perfect presents 😉
