I also made another card that turns into an envelope to add into your packages or if you only need to send one or two holiday letters this year. Again, it would be best to print on cardstock paper.

I'm by no means a professional at this. I draw to relax and have some fun. The directions on how to cut and fold are included in the files, but if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Here is a little project just in time for Thanksgiving. My friend needed a craft project for her son's cub scout meeting, so I helped her out by making these printable sheets to create a thankful tree placemat. I had a lot of fun creating it and I thought this might be a fun craft for others so I am sharing the free coloring pages and the tutorial with everyone.
The pictures below are my own attempt at making the placemat. Boy, it has been a while since I've gotten out the crayons and paste! I know there are more creative people out there than me and I would love to see your pictures of placemats you make from using this tutorial and I will post them on my blog. The printable thankful tree outline and leaves are at the end of this tutorial.
Step 3: Cut out leaves and glue to tree.
*** Added note: If a leaf was overlooked and did not make it onto the placemat, you can make a pretty decent patch by cutting out a square of contact paper, stick it to the leaf, then smooth it onto the placemat.

I wanted to make something for my husband for Father's Day that was from the kids but also something he can use. He likes only utilitarian gifts so I had a challenge as to what I could make for him. Since we are always looking for the remote controls, I thought a remote control holder would be useful and I could put the kid's hand prints on it. I was very sure of myself that I could hand embroider the images but alas, my hand embroidering stinks. I had to scrap that and go for a double stitch on the sewing machine. I wanted the pillow to look nice and blend into our living room furniture. So I went for a subtle design. I made it out of some suede cloth scraps I had. It was easy to make and he loved it.
If there is any interest in a tutorial, I'd be happy to add one. This would make a nice birthday or anniversary gift as well.
