This is a pretty easy project that complements Marilyn's place/recipe card project. The idea is to make lots of these for gifts when people come for brunch or dinner. The holder can be used for table place setting and then later for a recipe card holder.
Trace the patterns onto the wood and cut them out. You can find the pattern at www.runnerduck.com/images/placecard-holder-pattern.gif or clicking on the picture below.
Drill a 1/4" hole in the top of the "V" in the leaves and the bottom of the flower.
Now make a bunch more, add the place card and set them on the table. These are great gifts and actually work well in the kitchen for holding recipes.
