If you want to add a little festive cheer to your holiday, this quick and easy tutorial is perfect and just in time for Thanksgiving. Handmade place cards will help you give your guests some talking points as an icebreaker to start the conversation around the family table for the holidays. These can easily be translated into any theme for any holiday or dinner party where many new friends meet.


You will need some heavy duty cardstock or scrapbook papers, colored pencils, fine tip pens, markers, glue sticks, ruler, scissors and any other embellishments you wish to dress up these cards. If you wish to use these at the dinner table, you can make them match your decor to add a little extra to the theme.


Little messages or phrases can be incorporated onto these tiny cards and if you wish, you can hand write them or you can also print them in bulk using a computer and printer. Cardstock is perfect for this method!
