DIY Turkey Placecard

I have a strange fascination with cookie cutters. Why "strange" you ask? Because I don't bake! But for some reason I still continue to purchase cookie cutters (that take up a fair amount of kitchen cabinet space I might add). I have figured out other ways to use them outside of baking - remember this, this and this? So, continuing in that tradition, I decided to make Thanksgiving placecards using cookie cutters.

I found this adorable turkey-shaped cookie cutter at my go to craft store (Hobby Lobby). It's a really great copper color which forced me to buy it.


I then found a copper colored piece of scrapbook paper and printed the names on it. After that I cut the paper into strips like this one...


Finally, I cut a small triangle at the end of each strip, gently folded it backwards and then attached it to the cookie cutter using glue dots.


Here's the placecard all dressed up with a place setting...


These are super easy to assemble and you can give the cookie cutters to your guests as favors - 2 for the price of 1!
