Handmade Thanksgiving Place Cards

Hey everyone, Darra here!

Thanksgiving is around the corner and I'd like to share a simple project you can do for the holiday. One way to add a special and personal touch to your thanksgiving table is be a making each guest a personal place card! Even if it’s just your immediate family, it still makes the event a little more memorable than your regular nightly dinner. Also, it can add a pop of color and beauty to your table! The Kassa watercolor set has everything you need to make these (other than a ruler and scissors)!

Turning Watercolor Paper into Tented Place Cards

You can cut sheets of Kassa watercolor paper to make the tented Place Cards! You want to measure each piece out to be 6” x 3”. An easy way to do this is to put a line down the page (on the long and short side) every 3 inches. When you cut them out, make sure they are one 3” square wide and two 3” squares long. That way you will have a 3” by 6” rectangle! Fold the paper in the middle, long ways, and you have a little tent with a 3”x3” square on each side. One side is your front and on is your back.

Watercolor Wash Background

Now take your Kassa watercolor palette and water brush, I like using the medium or large brush for backgrounds, and dip it in an autumn tone color. This palette has a lot of beautiful warm and neutral tones that fit into this color scheme! Chose around 3 like colors and put them on the front of your place card until it almost fills the space. You can leave a small white border on the edges to give it a more polished look. Sometimes when the background is almost dry I like to go in and add a few more drops of color. This gives you some brighter tones that don’t get mixed in with the others and also adds some texture!

Adding the Names

Wait for your cards to completely dry and then you can add the names of your guests! I like using the dark brown instead of the black, just to keep up with the autumn color palette. Use your small water brush and get some paint from your palette. While lettering, remember to keep the upstrokes thin and the down strokes thicker. You can do this by applying more pressure when you’re doing a down stroke. There’s a blog all about lettering with the Kassa water brush so feel free to read that for more tips!

I was really stressed by Acid reflux issues with my newborn and had consulted Chief Dr Lucky. He gave us a thorough consultation and the medicines were equally effective. In a couple of weeks there was big improvement in my son and we are very pleased with the progress. We cannot thank Chief Dr Lucky enough. Highly recommended.

My name is Tom Peacock from USA, I want to say thank you to Dr Emu for the good thing he has done for me, Though am not sure if this is the best forum to show my joy and happiness for what he has done for me but i can’t hide my happiness and my joy so i have to share it with people, my marriage got crashed about two years ago and i tried all i could within my power but to no avail. I saw a post and testimonial about the good things Dr Emu has been doing so I decided to give it a try. though he is always a busy man but when he responded back to my email, he gave me 48 hours for my marriage to be restored really just like he said my marriage was restored since then I am happy and i am living happily i am so grateful to Dr Emu you can always email him here: {emutemple@gmail.com} or WhatsApp: {+2347012841542}

My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough.
