We hosted Thanksgiving dinner this year and I wanted to share a crafty project I made for the table. I used scraps of this and that plus my Cricut Maker to create some fun place cards for the table.
I pulled up my Cricut Design Space and searched for a place card I liked for a Fall look. I found a design that I liked but it was a napkin holder. I decided to convert the design and just use the toppers…with some modifications.
For a place card I need names of my guests. I don’t like my handwriting enough to personally write the names so I used my Cut & Write function on my Cricut Maker to make pennants/flags. I popped in my Cricut black pen and the machine used the pen and wrote out the names and then cut the shapes out. Love this feature!
Now I have compiled my pieces. I have the base and a leaf variety plus some color coordinated buttons. The base is two layers. I forgot to capture it on camera. I just glued them together and cut out three different leaves with different colors.
I grabbed some buttons from my stash and started arranging everything the way I liked and started gluing.
Here is what the place setting looks like with the place card (mine).
Here’s a close up of my place card. I like it and I think my guests will too!
