With the excitement of Halloween and Christmas some of us seem to forget about Thanksgiving until it’s literally right around the corner—but this year I want to be ready! I seem to always forget how much I love to decorate for Thanksgiving until it’s the night before and I don’t have time to put my ideas on the table. This year my goal is to make a place card for each person that’ll be attending our dinner. It’s something I’ve always seen in magazines and it’s secretly something I’ve always wanted to have at a party.
It took me a try or two to get a place card design that I really loved, and I’ll show you how I did it.
Step 1: Cut a 5 x 3” piece of ivory cardstock and then cut a 2 ¾” x 1 ¾” piece of pattern paper
Step 2: Fold the ivory cardstock piece in half
Step 3: Use a gelly pen to create a sewn border edge, then set aside.
Step 4: I used the super cute ‘so thankful’ stamp set by Lawn Fawn. Click here if you’d like to purchase the set.
Step 5: Stamp the pumpkins and leaf onto a scrap piece of white card stock
Step 6: Color them in, cut them out and get them ready for placement
Step 7: Adhere the pumpkins to the pattern paper like so
Step 8: Stamp the sentiment
Step 9: I created the guest names with Harold’s ABCs stamps set created by Lawn Fawn. You can click here if you’d like to purchase this set.
Step 10: Adhere the pattern paper piece to the cardstock and you’re finished!
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you come back again for more D.I.Y.s for Thanksgiving because I plan to post more ideas for this tasty holiday.
