Did your weekend come and go with no time to get creative? We have three projects you can make this week to get you back on the crafting train!

Hey there, Crafters!

I hope all of you had a fantastic weekend full of making. If your weekend was a busy one, not allowing you any creative time, we have you covered this week!

We have put together 3 fun projects you can make this week! That's right, you don't even have to come up with ideas yourself, because we've done the work for you! We show you how to create a giant paper pinwheel perfect for a backdrop, a card that has a vintage vibe using pretty embellishments, and we give you a fun place card alternative that is a must for your Thanksgiving table this year!

What are you waiting for? Go get crafty!

I have another easy backdrop idea for you! This backdrop idea turns double-sided scrapbook paper into whimsical pinwheels! All you have to do is cut all four corners of your paper toward the center of your paper. Then, it's a matter of folding your corners in toward the center of your paper to create the cool pinwheel effect. You could create a pinwheel backdrop for a party, wedding, photo booth, or even add them to a wall for an extra pop of interest!

If you love the vintage look, you are going to love this handmade card from Jennifer! Jennifer shows you how to layer using pretty flowers and embellishments to create a card that has sparkle and dimension! What are you waiting for? Check out here How-To here!

It's time to start planning your Thanksgiving tablescape! I know, it feels a bit early, but you can never start your holiday crafting too early. If you allow yourself enough time to create all of the wonderful ideas you have, you may actually complete them this year!

Claudia has created a dimensional place card that your guests will want to take home after they devour your tasty meal. This place card is a festive Fall tree and even comes with leaves! To create her tree, Claudia used a brown paper lunch bag. That's right, that thing you toss your sandwich in before heading off to work! Her project may look complicated, but the technique she uses is super easy. Check out the video below to see her tutorial from start to finish!
