Pumpkin Place Cards

My Aunt and Uncle called me this past week asking if I would have time to make some place cards for Thanksgiving.  Heck Yes, sounds like fun to me.
They turned out really cute here is how they are done.

Punch 8 circles, fold them in half and run your score tool over the fold.
I used quick dry adhesive to stack the eight half circles.
Cut off a small amount of the bottom so they will stand correctly.
Glue halfway up a toothpick and insert into the center of the pumpkin.
LET THIS PART DRY, does not take long but makes life easier;)

On the computer I generated all of the names and used the center point function on the cricut to cut the names out on the leaf.
Emboss the leaves that do not have the name printed on them.
Tie bow right above where your toothpick was inserted.
Glue on the leaves, placing the name leaf on the right hand side.
(I also glued leaves to the back to make the project looked finished from all sides.)
Tie button and adhere with dimensional foam dot.
Trim down toothpick so it is just above the leaves.

Products used...
SU DP, card stock, impression plate and ink
Quick dry adhesive
Circle punch
Computer and printer
Cricut and Plantin Schoolbook cartridge
PTI twine

Here is the link for you to my Pinterest pin so you can see where my idea came from.

Happy Stamp Day.  God Bless!
