Thanksgiving project #1 Placecards

Whew, birthdays are over and Thanksgiving is almost here. I spent the week planning and shopping for most of the meal and was able to finish a couple of projects.
For this year's placecards, I used PTI Friendship Jar and Fall Fillers stamp sets. I have been wanting to play with these sets and decided to try a bit of paper piecing. I started by using the coordinating dies and cut the jar and topper from PTI Vintage Cream cardstock. I then cut the topper again with various patterned paper from last years Amber Autumn stack from DCWV. I cut the tag and "ribbon" from the plain tag and pieced it on the patterned stack, inked the edges and stamped the sentiment and popped it up on the jar. I just made tent type stands from kraft carstock to adhere the jars to. I made 15 of them and a couple of extras so I can do a little more paper piecing. (it's a fun technique and I need the practice). I thought about adding buttons and twine, but after I put the names on there wasn't much room:)
