Pinecone Placecard Holders

Happy Thanksgiving! 

Here in Canada, we are celebrating Thanksgiving this weekend.  My Jumbo Pinecone Tutorial has been selling like hotcakes this month! I'm committed to showing my customers new ways to use the tutorials they've already bought from me.   I decided to take the pinecones from this tutorial to create placecard holders for our Thanksgiving table.  

To create this  projects: 

Make name cards, cut 3" x 7/8" out of Very Vanilla card stock.  Cut the ends into a "v" shape using your paper snips, and give the name cards a slight curve by working them slightly with your fingers into a gentle curve.  

Make the jumbo pinecone as per the tutorial instructions.  However, for this project, you will not need to wire it.  Then take your paper snips, and cut a vertical slit into the first two layers as shown above.

Slide name cards into the slit you've just created, and place onto your place setting.  They'll  add just the subtle touch to your fall table.  Wouldn't they also look stunning for an autumn wedding?


Thanks to all my customers you have bought this tutorial and made it wildly successful!  I have lots of holiday decorating ideas coming up using these gorgeous jumbo pinecones. 

If you don't already own it, you can purchase if for only $2.50 

The tutorial gives clear step-by-step instructions with tons of gorgeous photos on how to make the pinecones, plus lots of instruction on how to create the subtle effects that really make them look real and come to life (click on the picture to see the close up details).   The complete tutorial is 7 pages in length and has 21 photos.  The pinecones are not difficult to make, but a lot of photos are required to give complete step-by-step instruction.
