Dinner Place Cards

I was asked to make place cards for the Thanksgiving dinner table.  My hostess was going to send me an oak leaf pattern.  There would be 12 holiday guests.  I thought about my lack of interest in mass production and how I was already dreading tracing and cutting each leaf.  


Tim Holtz and his Layered Leaf Die and Embossing Folder to the rescue!  I added some inks to the leaves, and cut tags with the Tim Holtz Tiny Tabs and Tags Die.  I tied the leaves and tags together with Hemp strings and gold thread.  


Pinterest inspiration came to my rescue again with these.  

Happy Fall

These are lovely! That tiny bit of gold thread is perfect. I'm sure everyone will save their small souvenir of a special time.

They look awesome! Everyone will love them! I can't blame you not wanting to trace a bunch of leaves! Gotta love dies! Definitely looks fun!

These are the best place cards ever. The leaves look great tied in a little bunch with gold thread and hemp, festive and natural.
Tim Holtz leaf die and tab die! - how useful and exotic. Certainly beats cutting the shapes with a craft knife and the circles with a (old) penny and scissors. I like the way you have painted the leaves too. Have a great Thanksgiving Party, you are well ahead.

So cute! Sure beats all that cutting. I like the way you tied the leaves together and wrote the names in the center. Very creative.
