This is a TWO-DAY hop, so be sure to catch both days for maximum ideas (you'll find the entire line-up below my post)!!

Happy Thanksgiving Y'all. I hope you enjoy my project. I decided to go with a center piece for my table. Right now it is sitting on my buffet table. 

Now for the details of how and what I used to make this.
This is the card stock stack I used.
These are the papers I used from the stack.

I used the SVG file Big Gift Boxes from for the box. I cut two layers for the bottom to give it strength.

I also cut two layers for the sides and used my bray to glue them together. My bray sure comes in handy.

I used some artificial flowers and bling on the sides.

I put a hurricane lamp with a candle in the middle and then put scented pine cones are the outside of the candle. When the candle burns, it warms the pine cones so they give off their smell.


Thank you again for checking out my project and please leave a comment to tell me what you think. I'm always open to new ideas. Now hop on over to Michelle H.'s blog  and see what Thanksgiving goodie she's crafted.  Below are links to BOTH days of the hop so you'll be sure not to miss a THING!!
