Set the table with holiday or party scenes made especially for each friend or family guest! Stand-up place cards are fun to make as colorful decorations and favors for any celebration.
Create a miniature room or outdoor setting as a placecard backdrop for each person who is coming to your celebration. You might make scenes to fit a holiday. Or each place might show something about the person for whom you are creating it, such as a river with a canoe for an uncle who loves the outdoors.
For each placecard, fold and trim paper to make a square. Save the extra paper. Fold the square in half, corner to corner. Open the paper. Cut along one fold to the middle of the square. This creates two triangle-shaped flaps.
Arrange one flap over the other to see how the triarama will stand up with two walls/sides and a floor/ground space.
Use bright Crayola Pip-Squeaks™ Markers to design the placecard. An outdoor scene might have grass, rocks, or a path. An indoor scene might have a colorful rug on a floor. Decorate the two sides to complete the scene, too.
Write the name of your guest on the back of the triarama in large, colorful letters.
Overlap the flaps to see if there is anything else you would like to add to your scene. When you are finished, glue flaps together.
Use the rest of the paper to create 3-D pieces for your scene. Cut, fold, color, and glue paper to create furniture or a canoe, or other figures that fit the scene. Glue paper constructions in place.
