Happy Thanksgiving with Dana

From our family to yours, we want to wish you a ...

We are thankful for all of you!  We would like to celebrate the holiday a bit by hosting a fun giveaway* on the blog.

Hi Quick Quotes fans! Dana here with you today sharing a project that is quick and easy to put together --festive party crackers.

I'm using this set for a Thanksgiving dinner party, but these fun favors are great for any special occasion, and with the extensive line of Quick Quotes patterned papers, easy to personalize to suit any need!

The high quality of Quick Quotes paper makes it ideal for off-the-page projects like this. The double-sided designs ensure that both the outside and the inside of this packaging looks fantastic!

Step One: Cut the party cracker template from a piece of cardstock or thin cardboard. Trace around the template onto a piece of patterned paper. Three party crackers can be cut from one piece of 12x12 patterned paper.

Step Two: Cut the party cracker from the patterned paper.

Step Three: Using a craft knife, cut the slits into the patterned paper, down the right side of the cracker, that will hold the tabs on the left side of the paper.

Step Four: Fold the top edge of the patterned paper down to cover the middle segment of the cracker. Hint: The tabs on the left hand side of the cracker should line up. Using scissors, cut small triangles from the folded top edge of the cracker. Note: Cutting pieces of paper from between the cracker segments will allow the cracker to seal in the prize contents in a pleasing way that does not wrinkle the patterned paper.

Step Five: Fold the bottom edge of the patterned paper up to cover the middle segment of the cracker. Hint: The tabs on the left hand side of the cracker should line up. Using scissors, cut small triangles from the folded bottom edge of the cracker.

Step Six: Roll the paper to create a tube, inserting the tabs through the slits. Tuck a prize into the middle of the cracker. Cut two pieces of ribbon measuring 16-inches and tie the two ends of the cracker shut.

Thanks for stopping by today!

I am so thankful for my family and all the love and support they have shown me this year as I fight breast cancer. For the first time in 4 years I have all my children and grandchildren together, so we did a big family photo shoot! I will be making a great thanksgiving album!

I am Thankful for being able to get out of bed. I am also thankful for my wonderful family. I wouldn't be able to make it without the love and support of my dad. My kids are a wonderful joy and make everyday that much more special. :)

I'm thankful for a roof over my head, shoes on my feet, and food to eat. My heart goes out to all that can not say that and if I were a millionaire it wouldn't last long, as there are so many it could help.
May the Good Lord Bless and Keep You, and may each and everyone be thankful for something or someone.
