Turkey Place Cards

Hello, We R fans! Laura here today with some adorable turkey place cards for your Thanksgiving table. Every year we host Thanksgiving at our house for my parents, my husband’s mom and grandma, and usually some friends and other relatives. I think it can be really fun to add a little something extra to the table with Thanksgiving place cards for each person.

To make these place cards, start by trimming orange cardstock to four inches by six inches. Score and fold in half. Then, run one half through the Evolution Advanced with the gemstone embossing folder.

Use the circle template to cut out circles from the gold honeycomb pad to create the turkey’s belly. Adhere the turkey to the bottom of the folded orange card.

Use the clear cut circle punch to cut circles out of patterned fall themed paper. Then, use the circle punch to create the “feathers” for the turkey. You do this by placing part of the circle into the punch to create a leaf shape.

The clear cut punch is great for this because you can see exactly what you are punching. You can get two feathers out of each circle you punch out. Adhere the feathers to the to top of the turkey’s belly using adhesive.

Use the clear cut tag punch to trim out little flag shapes from white cardstock. I love the clear cut punch because I can use scrap paper and see exactly what I am going to be trimming.

Write the name of the guest on your white flag and then adhere to the bottom right of the place card. These are adorable and would be a fun craft to make with the kids. Creative turkeys are one of my favorite ways to decorate for Thanksgiving.

This little turkey would also look adorable on a Thanksgiving card or scrapbook layout as well.

Pie Box Place Cards

Creative table decor can add such a fun touch to special holiday meals.  Here’s a fun idea for Thanksgiving place cards–pie boxes!  Cut pie boxes from Harvest patterned paper, decorate them with your guests names, and fill them with some warm, fresh pie.

I used the Lifestyle Crafts Pie Box Die with my Evolution machine.  Then I cut some leaves using the Lifestyle Crafts Maple Leaves Nesting Dies and adhered them to the back of the pie box.

I printed my guests names on textured cardstock and added some Harvest embossed stickers to the leaves.  Then I lined the boxes with parchment paper, added a small slice of my favorite apple pie, and finished it off by tying some brown baker’s twine around the box.

Your guests will love these fun place cards–not only will they know where their place at your Thanksgiving table is, but they’ll have a yummy treat to take home with them when the feast is over.
