#17 - Sweet Treat Place Card

Such an easy design, simply cut out a circle or oval from cardstock.  Stamp or pen each persons name.  Wrap the treat with colored cellophane paper add a couple ribbon ties and it's done!

#18 - Giant Holly Leaf & Jingle Bell Place Card

This place card is so much taking a very familiar holiday icon, blowing it up to a giant 7" long you're to receive many smiles as folks gather around the table.

Print this holly leaf so it measures 6-8" long.

Print the pattern out so the trees fit your needs.  My tree is approx. 4.5" tall.
Trace & cut each side of the tree out.  Insert side #2 into side #1 until the points meet at the top. Write the names of your guests on each star, tuck one star on each tree and you're all set!
You can of course decorate your tree or leave it plain depending on your time table.
