Christmas Stable Name Cards

More Christmas crafts! Today we made our name cards for Christmas brunch. The women in my family aren't big red meat or even meat in general eaters, so we opt for a delicious Christmas brunch over the traditional roast beast, poor men. What we lack in meat we make up for in sugar.

Perhaps you don't need directions for this one, but here they are anyway!

Here is what you will need:
  • Brown card stock or construction paper
  • Gold or silver stars (I used the foam sticker kind)
  • Card stock with a picture of baby Jesus and a bible verse printed on the bottom and middle of the page. As you can see you can print 4 to a page. I used the verse "For today in the city of David a savior has been born for you who is Messiah and Lord." Luke 2:11
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Marker
Step 1: Fold your 1/4 sheet printouts in half to make a table tent. No pic, but it looks like the blank paper on the left side of the picture below.

Step 2: Cut out your stable. If you use a 1/4 sheet as a guide you will be sure to create a stable that will fit with your printed table tent.

Step 3: Glue your stable onto face of your table tent.

Step 4: Add your star.

Step 5: Find a 4 year old who knows how to write their letters and ask them to put the names of your guests on each name card.

Optional step 6: If you cannot find a 4 year old, you can always write them yourself.
