Simple Holiday Placecards

Wednesday, November 17, 2010

If you're sick of me blabbering on about stamps and craft punches: STOP.READING.NOW.

Otherwise, here are a few more simple ideas for dressing up your holiday table.

Scented Version

Wrap some pretty ribbon around a bundle of cinnamon sticks and add a personalized, stamped name tag.

Natural-Look Version

Wrap some twine around a straight-edged, glass candle holder and add a personalized, stamped name tag.

Pretty, White Version

Wrap some pretty ribbon and tie a bow around a curvy, glass candle holder and add a personalized, stamped name tag.

Notice how all of them said "add a personalized, stamped name tag"? Yeah, I'm pretty much obsessed with stamping and punching things. (Craft punching, not violent punching.)

Plus these placecards are simple to make, inexpensive, and pretty darn cute. Can't go wrong with that.

Which version do you like best?

Note: Alex just came upstairs and told me that "tying a ribbon around a candle holder doesn't really count as being crafty." He is now getting the silent treatment + bread and butter for supper. ;)

  2. I gotta say, I like the simple ribbon around the candleholder the best! I wouldn't even go with bread and butter after that comment ;)


  3. Hello! I am visiting you from Cupcakes and Ruby Slippers. I love your blog. It's so much fun, and I am going to try to make your Roman shade. Thanks for sharing and writing the tutorial for it.

    Also, I would love to be a part of your give away. I don 't know what project I would do- but, it sure looks like fun!

    I will be back again,

  4. What a beautiful idea! So you just used a punch to make the tags?

  5. Yup, just a craft punch from Michaels. They have two sizes, I used the smaller size for these placecard tags.


  6. Not sure how I missed this post! I love them ALL!!! I can smell the cinnamon! Ribbon not crafty? What?? I would just go with the bread!!! :)

  7. Love the cinnamon idea... sweet, spicy, and perfect for a holiday dinner!

  8. I missed your giveaway {SOB} but I have just gone and bought one of these fab stamps from ebay. You should know I will be totally blaming you when I tell me husband. I'll say you MADE me, you big bully!!!



  9. Visiting here from Centsational Girl . . . love the punched tags. I like the candle holder with the twine best . . . and tying ribbon around a candle holder most certainly crafting!
