Thanksgiving Cookie Cutter Pilgrims

November 16, 2016 No Comments

I love music!  And I love the instrumental music program at Easton Area High School.  So when the director asked if I would come along to help chaperone for String Day at Kutztown University, I was glad to help.  My daughter had had the opportunity to attend String Day several times so I knew I was in for an enjoyable day.  It was truly gratifying to watch the engagement and the excitement on the kids’ faces.  And of course at the end of the day, I had the pleasure of listening to their concert.  If you have high school students in a string program within driving distance of Kutztown University, I suggest that they participate another year.

Today, I got up ready to create and share the next piece of my Thanksgiving table decor.

I created Pilgrim napkin rings with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.

For my napkin ring base, I like to use a 1″ wide piece from a cardboard tube.  This helps to reinforce the napkin ring so that when you pull the napkin into it to set the table and out of it to use the napkin, you don’t have to worry about ripping the ring.

I covered my cardboard tube pieces with a strip of Soft Suede cardstock measuring 1-1/4″ x 7-1/2″.  Before attaching the Soft Suede piece, it was stamped with the Hardwood background stamp inked with Early Espresso.

Take your Bone Folder and pull it across the back side of the cardstock strip.  This will soften the fibers so that the cardstock will wrap nicely around the cardboard tube.  I attached the strips with Tear and Tape.  It was easy and will hold well against the pulling of the napkin.

The Pilgrims were made using the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.

The base of both Pilgrims is a punch from Pink Pirouette cardstock.

For him: I punched again from Basic Black and the lower body from Whisper White.

I trimmed off the feet from the Basic Black punch and set them aside.  Then, I trimmed off a small portion of the lower leg and the ends of the arms and removed the head from the Basic Black punch.

Next, I layered on the Whisper White lower body punch followed by the trimmed Basic Black punch and the reserved feet/shoes.

I punched the Cookie Cutter bow tie from Whisper White.  After trimming out the center piece, I added the two outside pieces to make his collar.

For his hair, I punched a 3/4″ Circle from Basic Black and then punched around the circle with a 1″ Circle punch.  Trim out the bottom bit and you have hair!

His hat was cut free hand.  Then I cut two squares slightly smaller than 1/4″ from Silver Foil Paper. for his hat and belt buckles.

His eyes are Basic Black punched with the smallest circle on the Cookie Cutter punch and his mouth was drawn on with a Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Write Marker.

For my Pilgrim woman napkin ring,

I layered a Basic Black Cookie Cutter punch, with the hands and head removed, over the Pink Pirouette Cookie Cutter punch.

For her skirt, I traced the lower part of the punch body and made it a little wider. The apron is the same idea but made a little smaller.

For her collar, I again used a Whisper White bow tie punch from the Cookie Cutter Builder and spaced the pieces wider.

Her hair is a 3/4″ Circle punch right at the edge of the Basic Black.  Then I used my Paper Snips to cut small “v”s from her bangs.

For her cap: punch a 3/4″ Circle from Whisper White and then punch around the hole with a 1″ Circle punch.  Trim the bottom and add half the 3/4″ Whisper White circle to the back.

Her eyes are also the smallest circle on the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch and her mouth was also drawn on with the Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Write Marker.

My table decorations are almost done!
