Thanksgiving has arrived!

Happy Thanksgiving! It's actually tomorrow, but I'm going to my parents' today for Thanksgiving I made placecards to take along. These were really simple to make.


  • Paper: Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss, Pumpkin Pie

  • Ink/markers: Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel, Pumpkin Pie

  • Punches: 1" circle, scallop, designer label

  • Stamps: Dotted Autumn

  • Other: dimensionals

  • Colour the acorn from Dotted Autumn with markers and stamp it on Very Vanilla paper. (I used Chocolate Chip for the nut and Creamy Caramel for the shell and stem. Cut out the acorn with sharp scissors.

  • Cut Chocolate Chip CS to 2-1/8" x 3-1/2". Score at 1-1/2". Use the scallop punch on the larger end of the rectangle.

  • Cut Kiwi Kiss CS to 1-15/16" x 1-5/16". Edge with Chocolate Chip ink.

  • Cut Pumpkin Pie CS to 1-11/16" x 1-1/16". Edge with Pumpkin Pie ink.

  • Punch the designer label shape out of Very Vanilla CS. Trim off the rounded parts with scissors.

  • Adhere the layers together. Refer to the photos for guidance.

  • Punch a 1" circle out of Kiwi Kiss CS. Edge with Chocolate Chip ink. Centre circle on back of placecard. Use a dimensional to pop the acorn up and adhere to the circle.

  • Enjoy your Thanksgiving dinner!
