Featured this week: A centerpiece for the Thanksgiving table!

    This week's Wednesday treat is a new Thanksgiving printable with four place cards. These festive place cards for the Thanksgiving table coordinate with the 3D Stuffed Paper Turkey and the quick napkin rings. All you need to do is download the printable Thanksgiving Place Cards PDF file, cut out the place cards on the outlines, print, fold in half, and write names on the place card fronts.
