Claire asked me if I could make some floral and vintage feeling name plates and menus for the occasion. That I can!
Here's what we came up with via facebook chat and me rifling through my stash of goodies. I've used the April stamp of the month Typed Note along with other current and retired products for this project. The birthday girl loved them and I had a ball making them!
To make the name plates, I cut 3.75x4.25" rectangles and folded to make the bases. I used a corner punch from my stash to scallop the edges. I cut a strip of Ivy Lane paper and edged it before adhering. Then after a couple quick stamps of the typewriter, the sentiment, and names all on Colonial White cardstock (and plenty of fussy cutting), all I had to do was stick it down. Tada!
