Thanksgiving Place Cards

If you're hosting the holiday meal, chances are you will be busy days ahead with preparations so here are two quick and simple ways to add a decorative touch and keep your guests in order!
Supplies needed for the shabby chic design:
Stamp set: Hand-Penned Holidays 124310(w), 124312(c)
Cardstock: Soft Suede 115318, Very Vanilla 101650
Ink: VersaMark pad 102283, Soft Suede Stampin' Write Marker 120973
Accessories: 1/2" Peach Parfait Poly-Stitched Ribbon 119264, Early Espresso/White Baker's Twine 123124, crop-A-dile 108362, Modern Label Punch 119849

1. Cut a piece of Soft Suede cardstock to 4-1/4"x 4", score and fold on the 4" side in the middle at 2".  Tear off one edge.
2. Ink the Give Thanks sentiment with VersaMark and stamp onto the folded piece.
3.  Cut a 5" piece of Peach Parfait ribbon.  Use Crop-A-Dile to punch two holes in the top left corner.  Starting on front side, push each end of the ribbon through a hole. Flip the cardstock over, crisscross the ribbon ends and poke back through the holes.  Adjust and trim ends.
4.  Punch out the Modern Label shape from Very Vanilla cardstock.  Using the soft suede marker write the guest's name.  Trim off one end with scissors, punch a hole with the crop-a-dile, and attach with the baker's twine. (see photo)

 Or maybe you prefer a more casual look.  The waffle paper works as a napkin ring.

2.  Ink up the large oak leaf with Cajun Craze and stamp onto the label.  Write guest's name using the soft suede marker.  Sponge the edge's with Daffodil Delight.
3.  Punch a hole in the corner with the crop-a-dile.
4.  Cut a piece of waffle paper 12" long. Rotate the piece and cut in thirds, approx. 3" wide each.  Tie one length of waffle paper around the napkin.  Tie on the tag with hemp twine.
