Thanksgiving Table Food Tent Cards

Hello, everyone! Hope you all are safe and well. This year is quickly coming to an end and before we know it, we’ll be writing the wrong date on important documents for the next two months! *Haha*

I’m looking forward to the new year, but before I jump too far ahead, let’s talk about Thanksgiving table ideas. For this project, I wanted to do something new to me! With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I thought I would try my hand at making Thanksgiving Table food tent cards! This is a super simple project that anyone can do, whether you have a cutting machine or a good pair of scissors and a pen.

The color options and design styles are endless and you can totally customize these tent cards to match whatever theme or holiday you decide to make them for. Let’s get started!

The materials I used to create these Thanksgiving table food tent cards include: Festive fall colors from the AC Cardstock Autumn pack

Directions:
1. In Cricut Design Space, insert a square shape and change the measurements to 4” wide x 3” tall. Center align and attach a horizontal scoring line to the square, to help with folding the tent card later.
2. Using the label file #M1A20BA83, resize it to nicely fit centered onto the bottom half of the square. I went ahead and duplicated the label to layer it, but you can do whatever you like!

3. Next, I typed out the foods that I know I will be making for Thanksgiving and changed the text style to “writing.” Attach the text to the label.

4. Lastly, cut out your items.

Once everything was cut, I decided to emboss the labels to add some texture and free handed a border for extra detail. After I was done assembling, I still felt that something was missing; I went back into design space to cut out a few leaves and free handed the veining pattern. Finally, these food tent cards are complete!

I love the buffalo plaid pattern and was happy to include it in this design. I think these will add a nice touch to any Thanksgiving table and I hope you give this project a try! If you do, don’t forget to tag @12x12cardstock on Instagram and show us what’s on your Thanksgiving table!

  • Hello! The font I used was “Sweet Dreams” and can be found in Cricut Design Space. It’s my favorite to use!
