Thanksgiving Placecards

I was "hired" by a dear friend to make these placecards. Can you imagine . . . getting paid to play with paper?
 It's an absolute dream come true! I hope she'll send me a photo of her holiday table.

It was an easy, but somewhat time consuming process. I started with a 4x4 inch piece of patterned cardstock, scored and folded in half. I used a font downloaded from for the names. Once all of the flowers were made and the branchy leaves were cut it was just a matter of glue. Lots and lots of glue. 

Products used : Spellbinders {Foliage, Rose Creations, and Labels Four}. Recollections Paper Pack {Night & Fall}.
 Stickles {Diamond}. Tim Holtz Distress Ink {Vintage Photo}.
 Those adorable leaves are from the Dollar Tree.
I used my Martha Stewart Scoring Board to make the box.
