Thanksgiving Placecards

Seriously...are these not the most adorable paper pumpkins placecards you have ever seen???

Monday is Thanksgiving in Canada but we are going to a wedding on Sunday/Monday so we're celebrating on Saturday evening with my family. I wanted to have a family project of creating placecards for the table. I saw this amazing idea by BrownEyedbby at Splitcoast that I thought was so creative and perfect for a Thanksgiving table. So I modified it for me. She also has a link to a tutorial in her posting too. It's great.

So the three most precious men in my life went to town creating these tonight while I was working on a Wedding Gift and my daughter was working on her Birthday Invites. So everyone was stamping! (Aren't they handsome....I just cut my baldy sweetheart's hair, he likes it very short...and the boys go for haircuts tomorrow). Mommy does NOT cut their hair.

Love that pic :)

Essentially I gathered all my Pumpkin Pie scraps, had my husband stamp Paisley Bk on them (which I wish showed up better in the picture, but it's night...), then our middle son punched out 10 Round Tab Punches per pumpkin and the little guy counted and grouped them then scored them at their half with my Scor-It tool, and then the three of them put it together with stronger glue tab to tab (10 per pumpkin). I added the pumpkin vine with tiny strips of Garden Green curled up by the boys to the very last glued section. Then after they were all done I cut out tags from scrap, wrote the names on the tags, and added them to the vines with a 1/16 punch and gold brads.

Adorable. Happy Thanksgiving Canadians!
