Design Team Wednesday with Susan

Hello Eyelet Outlet friends. There's a lot of work involved in preparing your family's Thanksgiving meal, so you'll appreciate this truly quick and easy project that will add such fun to your holiday table setting!

 I used the Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge to create the base for these tent fold style place cards, but there are other easy to follow templates available free on line. I printed the names of my family members on basic cream colored card stock, cut them into strips and applied some rust colored ink to the edges. After cutting out 1" tiles using the free Cricut Craft Room Basics digital cartridge, the real fun began! Using the many autumn and Thanksgiving themed brads available at Eyelet Outlet, these little place cards went together in a snap! 

The Mini Stitched Flower Brads in lovely autumn colors were an especially sweet touch for the gals in the family.


Of course, I just had to use the turkey brad on my husband's place card! He was quick to point out, however, that I deserved the nut on mine! 


Since there will be some family unable to be at our table this Thanksgiving, I used some of the embellished tiles to create this Thanksgiving card. 

 Supplies Used: Plantin Schoolbook and Craft Room Basics Cricut Cartridges, Pumpkin Brads, Fall Leaves Brads, Mini Fall Leaves Brads, Pilgrim Hat Brads, Turkey Brads, Acorn Brads, Paper Studio Leaves Embossing Folder, Ribbon 

There's just over three weeks until Thanksgiving, Eyelet Outlet fans, you still have time to create this fun project for your family! 

Thanks for stopping by!
