Minc Ideas for a Thanksgiving Celebration
Foiling is a beautiful DIY home trend that just keeps shining it’s beautiful self. Heidi Swapp’s Minc Machine is a super easy at home way to level up a holiday celebration side table. By using pre-made product and the Minc Machine and beautiful Champagne Foil it’s a simple way to add a bit of extra special to any table or vignette.
Today’s post will share a couple of ideas to bring foil touches in an elegant way to a holiday celebration. This Thanksgiving vignette came together by using what was to be just a basic side table of dishes and forks and a place for desert. Popping in these following ideas brings this setting together with foil touches.
To start this foiling celebration, I used the Minc Reactive Paper Pad with the Champagne Foil to craft a little banner for the background. For my vignettes I like to use an old frame as a backdrop. Within the frame is where the focus of the dishes and also the decorations will be placed. A banner helps fill in the frame and brings a focal point to a space.
I used the WRMK Banner Punch Board (not shown) to craft these little banners. They each are only about 2-inches wide. Once the notched banners were punched from the Punch Board, the kraft banners were then sent through the Minc Machine with the Champagne Foil. This is a really easy way to add a party vibe to any celebration.
The next item I wanted on my table was some additional celebration pennants.
Same as above, the pennants also were ran through the Minc Machine. I personally like to keep all the foil the same color. It’s just what works for me and my home decor. If you want to branch out and mix and match foil colors, do that. Make this vignette yours. These are just ideas to prompt some holiday inspiration however you are inspired. Your welcome.
The next Minc item I wanted to play with were these For You Minc Tags. These little cuties make any item that is stationary on a table just that much more special. And isn’t’ that what we want for our family and friends. To do the little things that relays to them how thankful we are they joined us. Because friends, as I always say, it’s the little things.
I popped one of the tags on an old jar filled with forks. A little string finishes it off. Hey guys, this isn’t fancy stuff here. This is very doable and with a machine that foils all the things like the Minc Machine, these little gestures go a long way to make a table shine for your guests.
I have always loved these Die Cut Phrases. I am always looking for a way or excuse to use these some way or another in my party decor. This time I used the Best Ever phrase to be the cover title for a little book I added to my vignette.
This is as simple as it gets. It’s a little guest book of sorts. I used the Tickets Journal Insert for what will be a little mini album when I finish. The idea is to take guests photos during the day. Then journal just a little bit about them, a funny that happened that day…or…this…
Make up some cards that your guests can add their gratitude list to. Using the Lines Art Screen I took 4×5-inch cards and made journal lines on each with the Minc Reactive Art Screen Ink plus Lines Art Screen.
Then I typed ‘i am thankful for’ and printed out on my laser printer. The toner ink reacts with the Champagne Foil to create pretty little gratitude cards. These cards can then be added into the Tickets Journal Insert. It’s almost an instant mini album all made during the day of Thanksgiving itself.
These are just a few ideas how to use the Minc Collection to add beautifully to your Thanksgiving celebration. Add banners and pennants. Tie pretty little tags to jars of utensils. Ready a mini album that can also be part of the table decor. Add in an assortment of gratitude cards for recording those stories. And have a beautiful Thanksgiving celebration.
