Hosting the family this year?

Are you looking for ways to make your holiday meal special? You might want to create placecards and/or menu cards for each place setting. This is a simple way to add a personal touch.

The base for both projects is Bazzill Metallics cardstock in a copper color. You can tell from the photo the shininess of this cardstock. The placecard was covered in a fall-look pattern paper and topped with a die cut leaf. The name was written with a Jelly Roll pen.

The menu card is really a pocket card created from the copper cardstock. Eyelets hold the flap closed to create the pocket. A strip of black ribbon accents the front of the pocket. The menu was typed in a Word document and printed on vellum. The vellum was then double matted on brown cardstock and then the fall printed paper.

Since Bazzill makes the Metallics cardstock in other colors, you can also tailor this idea for a Christmas or New Years' dinner. Happy eating!
