Yesterday I shared some decorations I've been working on for Thanksgiving. Here are more details on the placecards...
To make eight placecards, you will need two sheets of 8-1/2 x 11" card stock.
Score each sheet at 2-3/4" and 8-1/4". Cut in half lengthwise (at 4-1/4"), and then cut each of those sections in half (at 5-1/2").
Fold each quarter-sheet in half on your score line, and then decorate. I used the Wonderfall stamp set and the coordinating Autumn Accents Bigz Die for the perfect Fall images. The leaf is crumpled and sponged with Soft Suede ink. To get the two colors on the acorn, I used Crumb Cake and Soft Suede markers to "ink" my stamp. Then I sponged the edges of the acorn, too.
Did you know you can get a digital version of the Autumn Accents Bigz Die? The Wonderfall Kit includes the leaf "punches," several sentiments, and 12 awesome "papers." Plus, it's on sale this week - 50% off!
It can be easy to forget the decorations if you are the one hosting the meal. Start now and save yourself the stress of finishing at the last minute. If you are enjoying your Thanksgiving feast as a guest, be sure to make something pretty for your hostess! :}
