I’m so excited that November is finally upon us and that Thanksgiving is just around the corner! Every year, since I’ve been papercrafting, I’ve enjoyed making place cards for turkey dinner, but this year, we got really lucky and have been invited by friends to join them in the Outer Banks for the Thanksgiving holiday. It’s going to be a big house filled with a big family and so I’m not going to be making place cards for everyone like I have in the past. However, we will be having a quiet, pre-thanksgiving with my Mom before we go, so I still get to create my favorite fall craft, the place card!
I don’t know about you, but I simply can’t stop creating with the Go Now Go Collection by Shimelle. It’s just so versatile and absolutely perfect for Fall crafting. I created these cute little place cards with the paper luggage tags that come in the collection.
I started by trimming off the top of each tag and removing the paper inserts. Did you know, that those inserts have cute little designs on their backsides? It was like discovering hidden treasure when I saw how well designed these little tags were. I then used my typewriter to quickly type everyone’s full name onto the tag, and then reinserted them behind the plastic window.
I chose some coordinating papers from the Saturday Collection by Dear Lizzy to die-cut those adorable leaves. I then found those perfect golden phrase stickers in the DIY Shop 3 collection and added them over the leaves for some much needed bling! And for the final touches I added the gold ribbon from my stash and those perfect enamel hearts from Go Now Go.
I hope you’ll make some place cards for your own feast! It’s a fun craft that makes everyone feel like they belong exactly where they are! Happy Thanksgiving Friends!
