The design team at American Crafts have made an awesome set of placecards for Thanksgiving. There are 15 examples that will inspire you to whip up some for your own table too!
I will feature just some of the placecards here, and then you can go to the gallery at the American Crafts blog to take a look at all of them.
The turkey couple A (above) is by Shannon Zickel. She used the following on her cards:
- coffee, scarlet and white cardstocks
- patterned papers from the American Crafts Moda Bella Collection (Timeless, Preppy); Christmas Collection (Bushels of Fun); Everyday Collection (Allo, Bonjour, Gidday, Good Morning, and Yo!)
- white mini brads
- medium brands in carrot
- Remarks Stickers (Sotheby’s Color Set 1 & Color Set 2)
- black pen pens, .03 and medium
Kathy Thompson Laffoley made these pretty petite placecards for her family. Use these cards to indicate your guests’ places at the table, without overwhelming your other decor.
Since the cards are fairly small in size, you can also use paper scraps from your stash, if you don’t have the following supplies:
- carrot cardstock
- patterned papers from the American Crafts Everyday Collection (Hey You, What’s Shakin’, Yo!, and Bonjour)
- adhesive badges from Everyday Collection (Friends Flair and Smile Flair)
Our third featured placecard set are these easy-to-make ones from Linda Barber. These are great if you have family members who don’t read yet! All the little ones need to do is to find their faces and they’ll know their places!
You will need a printer to print out the photos. If you do have extra ones, just cut them out to the same sizes for each family member. Linda used these to craft her placecards:
- American Crafts Everyday Collection Hi paper
- MiniMarks rub-ons (IM Phrases, Purkey chestnut, Purkey white and Purkey shamrock)
These three sets should get you started thinking about what you can do for your Thanksgiving table. If you want more inspiration, go to the American Crafts blog.
