It's our last day of MFT Teasers and you all know what that means! Tonight is the big release night! Be sure to join us in the MFT forum for some fun, then it's time to shop! Before we get to all the information about that, I have a fun project to share with you today.
With Christmas just around the corner I thought I would share an inexpensive table setting project with you. You can create a fabulous table using a few supplies and Die-namics dies. All projects feature Wild Cherry, Very Vanilla and Old Olive card stock. The patterned paper is from Authentique's Wonder collection. The yummy ribbon is from Stampin' Up! and the rhinestones are from K & Company.
First up, we have the name place card. I kept this really simple. I layered the fabulous Clearly Sentimental Die-namics die, layered with an oval from the Vintage Cameo Die-namics die and the ticket label from the Layered Labels Die-namics die. I added a bit of holly that was created with the Christmas Ornaments Die-namics dies.
Since I am British, I don't believe that a Christmas table is finished unless there are Christmas crackers on it. To create the cracker I used a toilet roll and I covered it with red tissue paper. You can purchase the firecraker part at Micheals. I cut out two pieces of patterned paper and two pieces of Wild Cherry card stock with the Clearly Senimental Die-namics die. I adhered the two pieces of card stock togheter and then I adhered the patterned paper on top. I left a bit of a space at the top edge so you could see the card stock. I added a bit of May Arts Crochet Trim and a sentiment from the Christmas Ornaments stamp set was stamped on a banner created with the First Class Ribbon Award Die-namics die.
Instead of buying little charms or tags for your wine glasses, why not make your own? For the wine tag I used the Clearly Sentimental Die-namics die to cut a piece of patterned paper. I folded the paper in half to make this cute tag. Keeping with my theme, I added a bit of holly and some Very Vanilla Ribbon.
Here is a quick and easy napkin ring. I cut a piece of patterned paper and a piece of Wild Cherry card stock using the Clearly Sentimental Die-namics die. I adhered the patterned paper to the card stock and then I rolled the paper in my fingers to loosen up the fibers. I then adhered the one end to the other to create the ring. I added yet another piece of holly to finish it off. This napkin ring is not very wide, but you could easily add an extra piece of card stock to make it longer.
I kept the candle really simple, I added a bit of Very Vanilla ribbon and then a bit of holly. The candle is sitting on a doily created with the Dizzy Doily Die-namics die.
So, what do you think? Can you create a simple, fun Christmas table setting using Die-namics?
