Happy fall, y’all!
Since we’re officially in November, it’s time to start thinking about turkey, stuffing and the all important question in my family: pumpkin or apple pie? (This question has long divided the Smith clan, so to maintain the peace and foster loving communication at the dinner table, we ALWAYS serve both!)
And while the menu should be your top priority at Thanksgiving, let’s not forget about the holiday décor. After all, this is the perfect opportunity for a paper crafter to do her thing (and have an audience of “civilians” who will not only marvel at your ability to make a fine feast, but also set a gorgeous table).
Looking for some savory projects? The So Thankful feature in our November/December 2011 issue is a cornucopia of inspiration. From our paper crafted table to yours, here’s three place card ideas:
I love the gorgeous patterned paper and stamps Marisa used on her place card. And the kraft base is perfect for Thanksgiving. Feels like home!
Have a table of little pilgrims and Indians? Assemble these place cards and they’re sure to “gobble” them up! The best part…Diana created these tents without a die or template…just score and fold!
The inspiration is clear! Lorena made these quick and easy place cards from a transparency sheet, a leaf die, ribbon and stickers.
With Thanksgiving just a little over three weeks, it’s time to get in the kitchen (and the craft room)! Leave a comment telling me your favorite Thanksgiving tradition and I’ll pick one winner to take home the three sets of place cards shown above, plus BasicGrey’s Indian Summer collection – the same collection Marissa used in her Autumn Color Place Card. All comments must be received by Wednesday, November 2 at 5 PM MDT.
