Hello, crafty friends! Enza here, and today I’m sharing some simple place cards for your Thanksgiving table. Since this is usually a very busy time in most people’s life, I thought it would be helpful to come up with a fast and easy project that is sure to add a personalized touch to your décor.
One of the tools I reach out to often is the 1-2-3 Punch Board. This is truly a must-have, especially if you like to create your own gift boxes or envelopes for your cards. My idea for today was to make place cards that would also serve as gifts/party favors for friends and family.
I started by creating several string boxes, which I later filled with some goodies. I wanted something that was not too small or too big, so I decided to trim my patterned paper to measure 7 inches square. That gave me a box that is 2 ½ x 2 ½ x 1 ¾.
I made sure to use very strong double-sided adhesive to adhere the sides, but not before pressing on all the creases for crisp edges.
Once the boxes were all ready, I worked with several embellishments from different collections to spice them up a bit. Instead of using full names for my guests, I went with just the initials, for which I used alpha chipboard stickers I had in my stash. I added sentiments of gratitude and love, as well as some gold accents for a festive look.
These little boxes came together in no time; they are perfect as a pretty addition to your Thanksgiving dinner. Holiday craft doesn’t need to be complicated or time-consuming; all you need is just one tool and pretty embellishments. Happy crafting!
