Quick and Easy Holiday Place Cards and Gift Tags

Hi friends!  I have 3 different projects to share with you today.  The details will all be in my video below!



My first project is a quick and easy project to create place cards for your holiday table.  This uses an easy die cutting trick which you can see in the video.

For this project, I simply do a partial die cut and fold the card where the die cut ended.

I have used the Kat Scrappiness Dress Up Quokkas and the Thanksgiving Costume Add-On Set.  I absolutely love making place cards for the holidays and I was delighted to see that there are so many add-ons that coordinate with the Dress Up Quokkas!  I love that there are other fall items in this Thanksgiving set to create scenes and use on projects like this!


I also made some fall holiday gift tags.  These use one of my favorite die sets:  Stitched Fancy Scalloped Rectangle dies.  There are 6 dies in this set and I used one of the smaller ones to create two tags.  I did some ink blending on the tags, added a punched hole and some twine, and I added some of the images that I colored and die cut from the Thanksgiving Costume Add-On set.

I will add a personal message on the tag when I attach it to the gift!


I also like to have a set of thank you note cards on hand for each holiday.  I used the Scallop Mini Slimline dies to create this project.  I also used a die cutting trick to cut this out and preserve the fold!  The cutting edge of the die along the fold should be above the fold so it doesn’t cut the paper.  You can see this in my video below.

I used the leaves stamp from the Thanksgiving stamp set and heat embossed them in white.  This allowed me to add some ink blending.

The new Thanks word and shadow die made the perfect sentiment for my note card!  I used a nice orange piece of scrap card stock for the shadow and die cut the script word in a nice bright white!  I love the fancy scalloped edge and the stitching on these dies!

You can see all the details in my video:


Supply List:

The place cards and gift tags are a perfect project to have on hand for your little ones.  You can do the stamping and die cutting and then let your kids color them in while you are busy with what you have to do.  My kids always enjoyed creating things to decorate the table for the holidays so I always made sure I had a plan for a project they could help with.

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Have a fantastic day!
