We had my husband's cousin and her family over for Christmas dinner this year. I wanted to do something different from the traditional place cards. I decided to wrap the plates with ribbon to look like presents. To make the name tags I printed the names onto card stock and then cut them out into a gift tag shape and punched a hole through the tops.
I didn't have a lot of room to work with on the kid's table so I decided to put their names on the straws. I printed their names on card stock, punched them out with a 2 inch craft punch, punched holes in the tops and bottoms with a regular sized hole punch and then slid them onto the straws. They also each got a chocolate Santa for dessert.
