Thanks Giving Place Cards

Ok, these turned out really cute. I will be making 5 more for our Thanks Giving Feast which is coming up real soon. Super easy to make and you could use stamps for the image if you don't happen to have a Cricut machine. Think outside of the box as I always say. Lots of uses for the place cards too. You could use them as tags for gifts, labeling food at a buffet, and much more.

Items needed;
Cricut Machine
Plain and Printed Cardstock Paper
Black Pen
Craft Glue
Sticky Dots or Foam Squares
Cricut Cartridge (Speaking of Fall)


Cut out 1 - 2 inch E use the layer button, this makes the top of the pies.

Cut out 1- 2 inch E use the trifold card and shift button. Just cut off the unwanted pieces. This makes the bottom of the pie. I used a grayish colored paper so it would look like a pie tin.

Take your glue and glue the pieces of the pie together and then make the markings on the pie and tin with the black marker.

For the base of the place card you will need to cut a 3 1/2 X 4 inch square. I used my paper cutter, this made is super easy. For the printed piece, I just cut it a little smaller for the base would show around the edges. Just glue the printed square to the solid square. Let dry then fold in half.

To make the square for the name, cut out a 2 X 1 1/2 inch square and write name or even stamp name with letter stamps. Attach to place card with sticky dot or foam sqare.

Now glue the pies onto the place card.

In no time at all,  you have super cute place cards that will brighten up any Thanks Giving table. Have fun with it!!
