Tutorial - Thanksgiving Placecard Holder

Sorry this took so long. We've had a sick household and some medical scares. My camera battery is charging so I am going to talk you through the measurements and how I made the placecard holder rather than show through photos.

Cut a piece of Always Artichoke cardstock to 3"x6"

Score the cardstock at 1/2", 2.5", 3 7/8".

Hold your cardstock with the 1/2" score line on the left side. Use your slit punch to make a slit in the center of the right end of the cardstock.

The 1/2" section will tuck under the slit tab you just made.

Your placecard base is now ready to decorate. Mine is stamped with the Canvas background stamp.

The placecard portion of the holder (mine is made with More Mustard) measures 2.5"x3". The Very Vanilla piece is 2 3/8"x 2 7/8".

I hope this makes sense. Make sure to post a link to your creation!!! I would love to see them!!!

Happy Stamping everyone!!
