When folded, it will give them a shape of a tent. Get the large rectangular shape that will cover the face of the thanksgiving card. The smaller rectangle shape will serve as the top layer of the first card to give it a collage look. Make use of the inner space to pen down the names of the guests.
Pear Place Cards
Plastic pear cards are a great way to fashion harvest-themed place cards. Spray the pears with glittering spray so that it will bear more shine. If you want, you can apply glue to the cover and then use the spray so that the glitter will stay there.
Write down the name of the guests on card stocks that will match the colors for both the items. You can also use raffia to use tags on the pears apart from pasting the name card on the front side of the pear.

Apart from the above options, here we describe how to make a thanksgiving place card. You will need a paper napkin of your favorite color and paper clips. Get an apple, almonds, peanut (with the shell). One lifesaver candy, wiggle eyes, construction paper, hot glue gun, craft glue and marker are some of the other items you will need.
Steps to Make Beautiful Thanksgiving Place Cards
Hold the almond with its point facing down and using the craft glue paste the eyes on the round parts. With the hot glue, paste the round candy on the front side of the apple. With the same glue, now paste the almonds to the hard candy and let it dry. For the turkey wattle, glue the peanut underneath the almond.
Take the napkin size approximately 6” X 11”. Now pull the ends of the napkin together to give it a shape of a fan. Use paper clips to lock it securely at the bottom. Place the napkin safely to the back of the apple. Fold the end part of the paper to insert into the apple. Cut the construction paper in a rectangle shape. This is the place card ready for you. Finally, write the name of the guest.
