Technique Tuesday : Thanksgiving Place Setting/Table Decoration

For today's Technique Tuesday I'm actually going to share a super simple "mini" tutorial with you! Something perfect for the upcoming holiday...Thanksgiving!

I used one double sided sheet of paper from my Birds of a Feather November kit, some flowers from the kit and added an additional patterned paper from the kit later on (the word FAMILY was cut from this sheet) as well as a length of ribbon.

First I cute 5 strips of paper all measuring 1 inch in width and the following in length: 9 1/2, 8, 6 1/2, 5 and 3 1/2 inches.

I then cut holes on all of my strips on both ends...

Thread your ribbon through all the strips on one end...

and then feed them through the other ends of the paper strips.

When the ribbon is through all of the paper strips tie the ribbon so that it looks like so...

Now you can embellish as you see fit! These would look cute as name holders on your Thanksgiving table or scattered about a little arrangement of mini pumpkins and gourds too!
