Thanksgiving Place Cards

I had these place card holders up on the 3 Birds Studio blog last week. What a great way to add a little fun to your Thanksgiving dinner table!

They're super easy to make, and will add just the perfect touch to each place setting! To start, I made the “feathers” by cutting 3 scalloped circles using my Silhouette and THIS cut file (scalloped circle punches would also work for this!) Next, I cut the circles in half, and glued them on to the place card base made from a 4×5 piece of scrap cardstock that had been folded in half.

I cut the turkey body and beak from cardstock and then layered it on the feather pieces. For the turkey’s wattle, I cut a small piece from a strip of red quilling paper found in the Holiday Season Card Making Kit. Next came the googly eyes from my stash of craft supplies.

After the turkey body was complete I added a rectangle piece of patterned paper, and did some machine stitching around the edges. To finish the place cards, I printed the names on my computer, then cut them into small strips and added to the center of each card.


As always, thanks for stopping by!
