How to make it

  1. Print on regular paper or cardstock and cut out all of the pieces. Do not cut along the dashed lines — this is where you will fold the paper.
  2. With the design facing you, make all of the vertical folds in Mickey’s shorts away from you. Close the shorts by gluing tab A to the inside of the design.
  3. Fold the bottom of Mickey’s shorts outward, his feet down, and his tail up.
  4. Fold the top of the shorts like a box and tuck the tab inside.
  5. Fold the head in half and secure so the design is two-sided. Make sure the pieces are lined up evenly before the glue dries. Insert the neck into the top of the shorts where you folded the top closed.
  6. Fold the arms in half and secure so the design is two-sided. Do not get glue on the tabs on the ends of the arms. Fold those outward so you can use it as a base to attach the arms to Mickey’s shorts. Glue the arms to Mickey and your cutie is finished!

Come Ye Thankful People Come (Poem)

COME YE THANKFUL PEOPLE COME

Come ye thankful people come,
Raise the song of harvest home!
All is safely gathered in,
Ere the winter storms begin;
God our Maker, doth provide
For our wants to be supplied:
Come to God’s own temple, come,
Raise the song of harvest home.

All the world is God’s own field
Fruit unto his praise to yield;
Wheat and tares together sown
Unto joy or sorrow grown;
First the blade, and then the ear,
Then the full corn shall appear;
Lord of the harvest! grant that we
Wholesome grain and pure may be.

For the Lord our God shall come,
And shall take his harvest home;
From his field shall in that day
All offenses purge away,
Give his angels charge at last
In the fire the tares to cast;
But the fruitful ears to store
In his garner evermore.

Even so, Lord, quickly come,
Bring thy final harvest home;
Gather thou thy people in,
Free from sorrow, free from sin,
There, forever purified,
in thy presence to abide;
Come, with all thine angels, come,
Raise the glorious harvest home.

Sir George J. Elvey (1816-1893), organist at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle for nearly fifty years, wrote the music to the well-loved Thanksgiving hymn about 1844.
The lyrics are by Henry Alford (1810-1871).

Thanksgiving Party Decorations: Your Buying Options

Easy Thanksgiving Decorating Ideas Collage

When it comes to parties, whether they be Thanksgiving parties, Christmas parties, or birthday parties, a party is not complete without party decorations. That is why if you are planning on hosting a Thanksgiving party this year, you may be in need of Thanksgiving party decorations. If you have yet to start buying your party decorations, there are a number of important factors that you may want to keep in mind. These important factors will likely make it easier, as well as more affordable, to purchase decorations for your next Thanksgiving party.

Perhaps, the first step in buying decorations for your Thanksgiving party is deciding what you want to buy. While you can always do this as soon as you get to the store, it may be a good idea to develop a list ahead of time. Once you arrive at the store, to purchase your Thanksgiving party decorations, you could easily alter that list, but a list may help to ensure that you remember to get everything that you needed or wanted to, in the form of party decorations. Once you have developed that list, whether it only be a rough draft or set in stone, you can then start shopping for your Thanksgiving party decorations.

When looking to purchase Thanksgiving party decorations, you will, literally, find that you have an unlimited number of different options. One of those options is your local party supply store. Party supply stores are great places to purchase party decorations from, even Thanksgiving decorations. With most party supply stores, you will find that they have a larger product selection, when compared to most traditional retail stores. While the cost of shopping at a party supply store may be a little bit higher than most other retail stores, you should easily be able to find exactly what you are looking for and even more!

As previously mentioned, party supply stores tend to charge a little bit more money for their products. While the difference will not be extreme, it may be enough to make you want to shop elsewhere, especially if you are planning a Thanksgiving party on a budget. If the cost of your Thanksgiving party decorations is a concern, you may want to consider shopping at one of your local discount stores or dollar stores. With dollar stores, everything is one dollar or less. With discount stores, you tend to get access to a large number of low-cost products, many of which cost around a dollar or two. Almost all discount stores and dollars stores, in the United States, get a fairly large selection of Thanksgiving decorations around the holidays. By shopping at these stores, you could decorate your home, for your Thanksgiving party, without having to go broke.

In addition to dollar stores, discount stores, and party supply stores, you should also be able to purchase your Thanksgiving party supplies from one of your local department stores. Department stores are retail stores that are not always as cheap as discount stores and dollar stores, but are cheaper than party supplies stores. What is nice about department stores is that some carry a fairly large selection of foods. This means that in addition to getting decorations for your Thanksgiving party, you could also get your food, drinks, and snacks, all in one trip.

If you are looking to buy your Thanksgiving party decorations in bulk or if you are looking for something unique, you may want to purchase your Thanksgiving party supplies online. With a standard internet search, you should easily be able to find a number of online retailers that specialize in selling Thanksgiving party decorations. With a little bit of luck, you may also be able to find individuals or companies that specialize in selling beautiful, handcraft Thanksgiving decorations.

Although your first thought may be to purchase all of your Thanksgiving party decorations at once and from one store, you may want to rethink that decision. By visiting a number of the above mentioned retail stores, both on and offline, you may be able to create a collection of beautiful Thanksgiving party decorations.
