Thinking outside the album...

Thanksgiving is just around the corner. We're hosting the meal at our house for the first time in several years. I used a MOSD Clearly Cute Petite album to make a couple of easy additions to my holiday table.

To start, I created a wine glass marker with one of the the acrylic covers:

Here's how I did it:

1. Stamp acrylic with a mix of alcohol inks to add color.

2. When dry, apply rub on.

3. Emboss edges of acrylic with gold embossing powder. (Tip: Go for less is more and don't put your heat tool too close! It may take a bit longer, but you won't melt your acrylic!)

4.Add a metal wire ring and some beads, available at M's.

Looking for something to do with the chipboard pages that come with the album? I made a tag to use as a napkin ring:

As you can see, it is easy to add some homemade charm to your holiday table.
Now if I could just find my tablecloth, I'd be all set...
