• Neenah EPC Film – black – (available on amazon.com and other locations) • Silk leaves • Electronic die cutter • Iron • Platter • Candle holders
Instructions • Think of things you are thankful for in your life; then create those words with your die cutting machine. Be sure to reverse the words before cutting….I made my words one inch high. • Peel away excess EPC film so you only have the words on the backing paper; be sure and remove the inside of such letters as the Os, Ds Bs and such. Cut your words apart. • Peel the stem off of your silk leaves. • Place one word face down onto a silk leave and iron following manufacturer’s instructions. Let it cool down and peel away backing. Repeat for all of your words. • Arrange your leaves onto the platter and set candle holders on top. Tips & Tricks • If you do not have an electronic die cutter you can create this same effect by writing onto the leaves with a Sharpie. • Rearrange the leaves every now and then so you can see the words and be reminded of what you are “thankful” for. • Arrange the leaves in a cornucopia with other items and use as a centerpiece; with the leaves coming out onto the table. • Use the leaves for placecards at your Thanksgiving Dinner (a tip given to me by one of my readers). • Glue the leaves onto napkin rings.
