Happy Thanksgiving 2009

I know, it's the day after Thanksgiving, and late Friday at that! But I wanted to share our place cards from this year. Last year, my mother-in-law was visiting, so I made little boxes and put candy inside. This year, we didn't have any family in town, so it was just us, but apparently last year a tradition was born. :-) My older son asked what the place cards looked like for this year. Um, place cards? Ohhhh kay. Hmmm.

So ON Thanksgiving at about noon, I started thinking about what the placecards could look like. Procrastinating, I came across this post on Craft Gossip and thought it would be easy enough for me to make one in paper. So I designed in Inkscape, imported to SCAL and cut it all out. The "feathers" are just half of a scalloped circle, hand-cut along the bottoms so they were slightly curved instead of sharp edges.

The names were printed from my computer. I stamped the circle (part of a Studio G $1 monogram set) around them, then punched them out. The sentiment is from the Inkadinkado Seasons set that was sold at Costco last holiday season. The sentiment and scalloped circle behind it were cut with Nesties. Paper was all from the Paper Company multi-color packs from Michaels.

Thanks for looking, and hopefully your Thanksgiving was relaxing!

By the way, this is last year's box/place card:

Turned out very nicely and I know what you mean about those traditions. My family doesn't realize we have them until I decide or forget to do them LOL
Maybe next year you can delegate that job to the kids!
