"Harvest Blessings" Silhouette Project

Ahhhh!, Feels good to squeeze in a few moments 
to celebrate the Thanksgiving season.
Inspiration for this project has been bouncing in my imagination. 
I don't think tags are just for banners, as you can see. 
Here they adorn filled vessels and sit atop a re-purposed shelf box 
with vinyl phrase added onto a painted plank.

These two-layer H A R V E S T tags and the "Blessings" flourished phrase 
are from Silhouette designer Kenzie Daley of Snapdragon Snippets. 
Tags have cut-out letters, ribbon punch holes, and 
detailed flourished autumn symbols (acorn, pumpkin and leaf). 
These last don't show as well in a photo image as they do in person. 
Recycled glass containers - vases of two shapes plus a goblet-style candle holder - 
are filled with nature's treasures (pine cones, hemlock cones, horse chestnuts, acorns). 

In this closeup you get a better idea of the jar composition. 
A piece of corrugated paper has been curled around the jar or vase neck, 
with brown raffia wrapped, threaded through ribbon holes, 
then through a large brown wooden bead, with a rust ribbon accent.

One note regarding the "Blessings" design: I added the end flourishes, 
copied or reversed from the original, 
then added a few "berry" circle clusters that I love.

Hope you have time this November 
to do something fun with your Silhouette Studio!
Be sure to check out Snapdragon Snippets' many wonderful designs for the season.
