Happy Thanksgiving and welcome to this week's Pals Paper Arts KISS (Keep It Simple Sweetie, PPA18) Challenge!   Short on time?  This is a delightful challenge to trim your papercrafting speed and edit some of those layers and embellishments.

I'm spending the Thanksgiving day with family visiting my new Tucson home.  Our first guests 🙂  We plan to have a traditional turkey dinner in the afternoon (warm enough to eat outside–woo hoo) and then relax and do a little stargazing in the evening (with pumpkin pie). 

This quick and easy box will be the prize for our championship rummy game.  Rummy is tradition in our family–although we always have to look up the rules each year for a refresher.  I grabbed this fun tin (purchased from an on-line craft store) and tucked in 12 yummy Hershey's Nuggets.

STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:

  • A 1" x 3" strip of Autumn Traditions Designer Series Paper, gives each nugget a beautiful, custom wrap.
  • The wing of the Gobble, Gobble turkey stamp was inked a second time in More Mustard and paper snipped to create a contrasting color.  It's propped up on a Stampin' Dimensional.
  • Paper Piercing offers a polished finish without a lot of effort.  Use a Paper Piercing Template from the Stampin' Up! Mat Pack to keep spacing even.
  • I used a Crop-A-Dile to set the silver eyelet silently.  Very cool.
