Thanksgiving Place Cards

After looking at my extra undecorated candy box cards (others were decorated for Halloween in a previous post), I decided that they would make great place cards for our Thanksgiving dinner. Using the Thanksgiving Hero Arts clear stamp sets (see previous post), some border punches, and faux autumn foliage I purchased from Ben Franklin Crafts, it was easy to assemble the card boxes. Filling the boxes with autumn themed chocolates will help to stablize the cards so they will stand up on the table. The guest's name could be attached somewhere on the place card (unless you are having a dinner for hundreds) and a small personal note or the menu could be written inside the card. Thank you for stopping by and I hope I've given you an idea to spice up your Thanksgiving dinner. Gobble, gobble, gobble!

What a great idea to use up your extra candy box cards and making them for thanksgiving. Very cute and I love the pilgrim stamps especially since it is Hero Arts!
