More Scribble Scrabble Goodness

November 4, 2011

Hello, Crafters!
Yesterday I showed you my Thanksgiving Blessings Can. Today, I thought I would show you some more of my place setting: the name card and the napkin ring. I would show you the placemat now, but, well, it's not quite done yet. Oops. Oh well. I promise to show it once it's finished :) Anyhow...Remember that you can see this place setting, as well as the place settings from the other Design Team members, in the store.

First, the napkin ring. Easy, peasy. Remember that red tape we used yesterday? We're going to use it again today. Use it to attach some of your leftover Distress-Stained ribbon to your burlap ribbon that you've cut long enough to hold a napkin. Staple the ends together to make a loopy ring. Punch a cardstock circle (or cover a chipboard circle with patterned paper like we did yesterday), and red tape it over the seam of your napkin ring. Layer another Distress-stained circle over the top of your first circle. Tie a knot in a scrap of your Distress-stained ribbon. Cover the top circle with diamond glaze and lay the knot into the glue to dry. That's it! Easy, huh? Especially since we were just using leftovers and scraps from yesterday's project!

And now for the name card... Cut a length of patterned paper (mine is approximately 2x6 inches - I'm just guessing here. I don't measure), and fold it in half. Ink the edges with brown ink. Cut a strip of coordinating paper 1/2x3 inches and layer on the front of your card. Choose a My Mind's Eye Lost and Found 2 label sticker, mat it on patterned paper, and attach it to the top. Add 2 brads to decorate. Write or stamp the name of the person who's seat this will be with brown ink.

Open your card. Cut a small rectangle of ledger paper or a piece of coordinating cardstock, and glue it to the inside as a small journalling spot. Stamp or write the words. "Grateful for:" at the top. Provide a pen so your guests can write what they are grateful for during Thanksgiving dinner. After dinner, reclaim your craftiness (hehehe) and add it to a scrapbook page - Journalling Done!

Enjoy! I hope you have fun crafting your fall tables!
