Mother's Day or Rose Party Favors Blog Tour - Day 3

Day 3 already!  WOW!  I hope you enjoy my last installment.  I thought these would be fun for a Tea Party, Bridge Club, or a great Mother's Day table setting.

 The napkin ring is made with the the Stampin' Up! XL Bigz Die 'Table Setting' (Item #16819). 

As you can see I cut the main strip twice, but cut one in half so I could have outline in the final product.  The spiral is rolled in toward the center circle (which is the base of the flower).  The leaves are next, I gently scored and folded them down the center and 'bent' them repeated to create the veins.  Although my sample napkin isn't embossed (I ran out of plain white napkins) below you can see one that I ran through the Big Shot using the same Manhattan Flower Textured Impressions Embossing Plate that I used with yesterday invitation. Pretty Cool huh?

A quick Place card comes with the die - the stamped flower is from the Always stamp set (Item #113620).

I used Whisper White for the insert cut with the Designer Label Punch (Item #107590) I used a sponge to highlight the edges in Certainly Celery ink. I am sure I could have fancied this up, but I wanted to keep it simple this time around.

This last favor box is my favorite.  I just had to see what else I could do with the embossing plates, so I tried cutting the Wood Sheets (Item #116309) with the SU Fancy Favor Bigz XL die (Item #115965), then I ran it through using the texture plate...to my surprise, & Excitement!!, it worked!  I highlighted the flower and the leaves using a sponge and Pretty In Pink ink (Item #101301) & Certainly Celery ink (Item #105215).  Then just a fill a Medium Flat Cellophane Bag (Item #102757) with some goodies, tie it up with Pretty In Pink grosgrain ribbon (Item #109032) and you have the table set!

 If you like this theme consider decorating the walls (or clear glass dishes -underside) with the Definitely Decorative vinyl to match!  That could be a real show stopper!

As you know, today I am still at the Great Lakes Mega Meet- It's the final day there too!  I know you'll want to see what I post about that event too, but it may take me just a few days.  So check back tomorrow to see the FREE Make & Take & matching Limited Edition scrapbook layout that we offered at the meet!

Enjoy the last day of the Remarkable Blog Tour....Hugs, Karie
