Default Ear of Corn Place Cards

Supplies needed:
Heavy-duty construction paper or card stock (green + another color)
Unpopped popping corn (about a spoonful of unpopped corn for each place card)
White glue
A pencil, marker or pen

Cut a piece of construction paper that is about 5 x 6 inches (use any color but green).
Fold the paper in half so that you have a rectangle that is 5x3 inches. Unfold it. This will be the place card.
Using a piece of folded green construction paper, cut an oval with pointed ends -- it should be a little smaller than 1/2 of your place card (about 3 inches by 1 1/2 inches).
You should now have 2 green ovals. Cut one of the ovals in half the long way.

Glue the green oval to the bottom half of the unfolded place card.
Squeeze a blob of white glue onto the green oval, leaving an edge of about 1/4 inch without glue around the green oval.
Sprinkle unpopped popcorn (about a spoonful) on the glue. Push the popcorn into the glue.
Put a line of glue over the right half of the corn. and under the bottom right half.
Glue on the half ovals of green paper (to be the husks of an ear of corn) at a slight angle.
Only the edges of these half ovals will be glued -- the rest will stick up over the corn, looking like a partly-opened corn husk.
Let the glue set (this will probably take at least overnight) - if the glue isn't dry completely when you use the card, the glue will slowly leak down the place card!

Write the name of a guest on each of the place cards and put each one by a place setting.
