Thanksgiving Place Cards Supplies:
- Fall Patterned Vinyls
- Solid Vinyl in Fall Colors
- Transfer Tape

Place your patterned vinyl face down onto the cutting mat. Using your wood shape, decide how large of a piece of vinyl you need. Using the TrueControl Knife and Cutting Ruler, trim the vinyl.
Grab the vinyl square you cut, and have your wood shape with the front side facing up.
Peel the backing off of the vinyl.
Place the vinyl onto the front of the wood shape. Smooth it out well using a squeegee.
Turn your wood shape over, placing it face down on the cutting mat.
Use the TrueControl Knife to trim the extra vinyl from the edges of the wood shape.
Once the edges are trimmed, peel the excess vinyl off.
Using your Cricut machine, cut out the names you need for the place cards.
Weed your designs.
Using transfer tape, transfer them onto the front of the patterned vinyl on the wood shapes.
These Simple Thanksgiving Place Cards can be used year after year, and are so pretty to add to the table!
They don’t take a lot of time to put together either. If you’ve got the supplies on hand, you can have them made in no time!
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving, if you’re celebrating!
