Let's Clicut!

It's Monday! Today is my day with Imaginisce to share a fun project using one of my favorite tools, the Clicut!

I am in full birthday gear here at casa de bean, as the rugrat's big 5 birthday party is this weekend. But, I still needed to be thinking about the holidays. I thought I would make some placecard settings for our Thanksgiving feast and the Clicut was just what I needed.

I found this lovely tutorial by Kate Pullen on how to make a paper pumpkin. I wanted thinner strips and so I adapted the tutorial to suit my needs. Now, I usually reach for my paper trimmer when I need to cut strips, but the one I have doesn't do so well with strips smaller than 1 inch wide. So, the Clicut was just perfect!

I also wanted to make some little curly cues for the "vines" on my happy pumpkin, so I cut even thinner strips with the Clicut before curing them around the barrel. 

I hope your Thanksgiving feast is festive!
