With the events of the last week, I am finding myself appreciating the simplest of things. – lights, water a stocked refrigerator.
And with Thanksgiving not too far away, it puts being thankful even more on my mind.
So I gathered up 6 simple, but to the point, Thanksgiving quotes that can be used on your tables.
And the best part is, this is something you can finish now, set aside and then when the busy day of Thanksgiving comes, it is one less thing on your list.
So if you would like to create this look – here are the steps.
(The link for the printables are below.)
Materials – The print out of the quotes on cardstock of your choice, scissors, paper cutter, 3” circle punch and an edge punch.
Step 1: Cut out the quotes loosely so that are smaller and so that you can insert it easily in the circle punch. I used a scalloped edge one, but it will work with a plain circle as well.
Line up the quote from the underside of the punch and make sure that there is no white space visible around the outside of the circle – and punch.
If there is a plastic guard on the bottom side, it can be a little easier if you remove it.
Step 2: Repeat until all 6 quotes are punched.
Step 3: Use an existing napkin ring or make one simply with a ribbon connected with hot glue.
Step 4: Attach the quote circle to the napkin ring. You can do this simply by placing it or attaching it with a dot of glue.
Step 5: Cook a turkey and all the trimmings and enjoy your meal.
I also made a second variation of these quotes – by removing the circle (that printable link is also below).
In this case, I cut the quotes 4 inches wide and 3.5” high with my paper cutter.
Using the edge scallop punch, I added detail to the bottom. This one had a pattern match on the sides so you can keep moving down, with it all lined up, until it is complete.
Then I cut a background piece of cardstock also 4” wide by 3.5” high.
Then I just used a glue stick to place the quote over the top of the colored card stock.
This one I chose to just place on the plate.
Just as another option – you can use the printable without the circles with a 3” circle punch as well – just line it up from behind as well.
