create52 | 2 | diy leaf placecards


We had a quiet Thanksgiving this year with just the five of us (it's 5 now that Mom is living with us). But, I still wanted a simple, but pretty table so I pulled out the 'good' china (which I use quite often, but still call it the good china) and made these darling leaf placecards. Here's what I did:

1. I sent Jarrod outside and had him find 5 pretty, fall colored leaves scattered about the neighborhood. He brought back inside quite the collection so I picked out my 5 favorites for my placecards.

2. First, I tried a white gel pen but sadly it had dried up from lack of use (shows you why, one of the reasons I began this CREATE52 project - use my stuff!!!). So, then I searched my stash of letter stickers I could use, hoping to find white - with no luck. But, realizing that metallic gray and black work just fine.

3. Place the leaf placecard on the appropriate plate. Done and done.
