Saturday was a great day! Debbie and I helped our friend make wedding favors/name-place holders for her upcoming wedding in October. We decided to make the Box with Scallop and decorate the outside. Debbie came up with the brilliant idea of putting the names on the boxes to serve as name-place holders for the reception tables.
While Debbie and I cranked out the boxes on our Big Shots, Meg got the unlucky task of cutting out the circles. The Cutter Bee circle cutter is good in that you can do circles in any size, but it wasn't made for large production. We ended up spending a lot of time cleaning up edges.
Meg chose the champagne glasses stamp to decorate the boxes. She colored them in with the Copic gold Spica pen, then put a layer of Crystal Effects over the glitter. I really think these look great.
We were crafting machines, but it all came together in the end and it sure was fun. Lessons learned? Start earlier than you plan, have cookie/coffee breaks with chocolate, and listen to 80's music :) Oh, and have a cat supervise ;) That's a picture of my male cat, Kimba - he had fun watching and sleeping in the window.
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
