Another budget-friendly Christmas present. Grandma loves to decorate the dinner table for the holidays so I thought I would freshen up her place cards for this year! We thought we would keep them neutral from any Christmas theme so she can use them year-round.

To kick them up a notch and make them really special, I used an alphabet stamp kit to write out everyone's name and brushed them with an embossing powder, to give them a finished look.

We all stay at Susu's house, which is surrounded by Sassafras trees, so it was easy to choose their leaves as decoration. We weren't sure if a glue stick would keep them from falling off so stitching them down with the machine was helpful in knowing that they would stay and also add a nice decorative element. I love when resourcefulness and neccessity can also be beautiful!
