Christmas Table Place Cards

Me and The Graphics Fairy have been “like this” the past few days.  I have a third post in as many days that involves an image from her site.  If you haven’t visited Karen’s blog before you will love all the images she offers for us all to download.  This project is for my Christmas Day table.

I got these ornament place card holders from the Michaels dollar bin.  The selection was basically limited to green and red, but for $1.00 for two I’m not complaining.

Now I needed place cards.  I used this wreath image from The Graphics Fairy, opened it in Photoshop and added the names with the text function {in Edit}.

I used the same font I used for the Santa key tag {Open Classic} and printed them on my always favorite brochure paper.   I cut them out and I have place cards!

I had also looked through my gift tags to use as place cards {and you could handwrite your guests’ names}, but the tags I have on hand weren’t grabbing me.   Of course, you can also make your own using scrapbook paper, card stock and embellishments, but this was the quick and easy route for me.

Now I just have to get the dishes washed up and I’ll be ready to set my table!

I looked around to see what you have been up to. You have been very busy creating and I love the place cards. I would sure like to get my hands on some of those ornament place card holders. The Graphics Fairy sure has some great images. Merry Christmas!

I didn't see these at my local Michaels. But then again, it has been lacking lately. I actually wrote the CEO a letter this week. I don't kid around :) Merry Christmas!
