Doodlebug Design | Great Outdoors Thanksgiving Place Cards

Hi Everyone!  I'm so excited that we can actually do "in person" Thanksgiving this year!  It's one of my favorite holidays... family, friends... the carbs... it's all so fun!  In addition to the turkey and all the fixings... I love to add a little something to each place setting.  This year I made these fun little Truffle Box Place Cards.  I got the idea from a gift box in a card I saw on Pinterest.  I thought it would be fun to downsize it a bit to make it a place card using the Great Outdoors Collection.  Take a peek...

The place cards are made up of an easel base with a cut out that perfectly fits a little box with a cover.  The boxes are sized for a small treat.  I love all of the fall colors of the papers in the collection,  it's hard to pick a favorite... maybe the Bits of Nature, but then I adore the plaid side of the Wildflowers cardstock too!

To create my name pieces, I printed everyone's name on some white cardstock.  I then cut out the ovals using the Mini-tags Doodle Cuts.  

Decorating the place cards was my favorite part.  I stamped lots of leaves and acorns from the It's Fall Y'All Doodle Stamp Set.  I colored them with my Copics and fussy-cut them.  If you're not into fussy cutting, there are matching Doodle Cut dies for the set, but I find the cutting very relaxing!

I popped up the leaves and acorns on the covers with a little foam tape and then added one last leaf to the front of the place card.  I finished them off with some mini jewels on the leaf.  I can't wait to see them on my table!

Would you like to create your own truffle box place cards?  I created a cut file for them and it is currently available in the Lori Whitlock SVG Shop, and it will be coming soon to the Silhouette Store.  I've linked below to the SVG.  If you make some, be sure to tag @doodlebugdesign on Facebook and Instagram.  We always love to see what you create!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
