Fall Placecard Favors

Happy Thanksgiving!  To help decorate our Thanksgiving table, my mom and I made these placecard holders that also double as favors with surprises inside—our take on the Christmas crackers you tend to see around the holidays!

We took TP rolls and covered them in some decorative paper, then embellished then with foliage and either birds or butterflies (birds for the gents, butterflies for the ladies).  We took wooden leaves and stained them with alcohol inks, then wrote the name of each guest.

For the inside we took some candy and small toys and rolled them up in tissue paper, then tied each end with some ribbon.  These ‘favors’ can then be slid in and out of the tube without ruining the placecard holder itself.

Enjoy! Now go eat some turkey…
