MakeItMondayCircle-FALL2015Welcome to another Make It Monday! I’m excited to share a super quick project with you! Last year when I opened my Etsy shop, I added a few printables of Thanksgiving Tent cards – perfect for Name Cards or Buffet Table Menu Cards. And they looked darling! Here’s a peek:

This year, with the adorable Top Dog Pocket Pages Fall die set in my stash, I decided to have some fun with these already super pretty printables, but add a leaf to each card. I grabbed some pieces of fall colored cardstock and die cut a couple of the leaf shapes from the set. The details on the leaves from Top Dog Dies are just beautiful! I so love stitched details!

The printable place cards were printed on white cardstock on my home printer. Using a foam adhesive, I added a little pop and dimension to the leaves. To make all of the name cards pictured (I made 9 for this project), I think it took all of 15 minutes! Your guests would certainly be wowed with such pretty name cards and they’d never know it was such a quick project!

The table tents / place cards are available in my Etsy shop – in several different color combos, and each color combo comes with 2 sizes of tent cards. You can check them out here. For this project, I used the larger size (3″x3″ when folded) of the tent cards. They’re averrable via an instant download PDF. You can add your guest names using your PDF reader and just add text. Super easy peasy, even for the non-techie or crafty types 🙂

Does the thought of Christmas traditions warm your heart? Does the anticipation of December make your heart skip a beat? Me too! Thanks for joining me for another Make It Monday post! I hope you’re ready to talk about having a Creative Christmas!

Last year I taught a class making a gorgeous Advent Calendar Banner and Mini Book. I couldn’t wait to recreate it this year with fresh papers from the 2014 collections and add new activities to the list! I fell in love with this Carta Bella “Christmas Time” collection and jumped right in… what’s not to love about those cute papers, right?! Then I decided to make my own numbers to punch out and use with the banner pennants and had fun making those digitally!
