Thanksgiving Placeholders

>> Thursday, November 10, 2011

It's time to get a little crafty with Thanksgiving approaching. Since we won't be traveling for the holiday this year, I am looking forward to spending lots of time in the kitchen cookin' up a meal for the family. I usually don't decorate the table with any major Thanksgiving decor, but this year I plan on spicing it up, just a little.


I made these super simple paper acorn place holders and decorated each of them with fall die-cut embellishments & chipboard accents. I used my trusty Silhouette die-cut machine to cut out the large acorn and backed the tops of the acorns with extra cardstock for sturdiness. The small leaves on each acorn was cut out using the Slice die-cut machine.


I love pennants, so these little acorns couldn't be without a few pennant banners addressed with each persons name - I love how the tiny ABC Stickers come into play with this project.



My daughter had the pleasure of picking out the colors and patterns for her
acorn. As you can see, she is quite proud of hers. What I loved most about this project was that it took me only an hour to complete, with the assistance of my little one, of course.

Cheers!
