Setting the Thanksgiving Table

Looking for a way to dress up your Thanksgiving table?

How about making some placecards?


To make ones like mine, you'll need:

* The Autumn Afternoons by Ali Edwards stamp set


* Any alphabet stamp set. I used Technique Tuesday's Start Me Up Addison set.


* Scissors, ink, adhesive, cardstock, jute and gems

Then, you just have to get to work.

Start by stamping the large leaf from Autumn Afternoons on cardstock with red, brown and orange inks.


Cut the leaves out with your scissors. Some folks call this fussy cutting. I just call it cutting.


Wad the leaves up and then flatten them out. This will give them the appearance of texture.


Stamp the names of your dinner guests on small panels of kraft cardstock.


Tie jute around each name panel. Adhere panels and leaves to small cards cut from cardstock. Finish each placecard with a gem.


The end result: Lovely placecards for your Thanksgiving table!




Gorgeous! I love the brown ink on Kraft. That font is beautiful. I also love the scrunched text leaves.

I love those! Beautiful and so simple!!

OH so pretty Teri!!! I love the way you crinkled the leaves....such great texture!
