Festive Place Settings

My friend L asked me to make place name settings for her Christmas dinner table. The only brief I was given was that her theme was black and silver.

I began by making the basic sized card to be folded over and glued silver glitter card to one side. This is the side that the names would appear on.

 

 

 

 

 

Next, I cut the name plates with fancy scissors, you know the ones that cut a scalloped edge, and added the names. Children got a little Christmas themed stamp which I coloured in. Male adults got a manly stripe of black and silver washi tape and female adults got a silver sticker from a collection of stickers I bought from Lidl a while back. Female adults also got a little diamante.

The name plates were attached to the silver card with foam tape to raise it off the card.

 

 

 

 

On the back of the place settings, I wrote ‘Christmas 2016’ in silver and added another wee sticker. That way they can be read from the back, across the table and they become a keepsake. Lastly, I packaged them up in their own individual slip cases and handed them over for the festivities to begin.
