These oversized place cards look involved but printable templates make crafting them a snap.

Materials Needed:

  • brown standard-sized cupcake liners
  • foam dots
  • hot glue gun and glue sticks

Print Templates and Cut Out

Download and print leaf and flag designs, one of each per guest. Cut out printed leaf carefully just inside the edge.

Personalize Flags

Fold two brown cupcake liners in half and overlap to create the ruffled circle. Use hot glue to attach to the center of the leaf. Cut out "Happy Thanksgiving" flags along gray dashed lines and write guests' names on each flag using a black or dark brown calligraphy marker or pen.

Assemble Place Card

Fold flag twice on each side and trim ends in an inverted triangle to create a pennant shape then attach flag to leaf with foam dots for added dimension.
