Spring Things Straw Toppers and Place Setting


I was inspired a few weeks ago by Theresa Momber's blog entry ... she made these cute little straw toppers. I thought this would be so cute if you could use these as a whole theme for a table setting!
So what better to use than this month's FREE Download at the Angel Company called Fresh Spring Things Place Card. This cute duck image can be used in many ways ... besides just a place card.

Straw Toppers

I printed out the sheet of the place cards and made straw toppers, place cards, and a place mat. Perfect for Easter!!

Place Setting

I love how everything is coordinated here. I took the place card as is and wrote a name on it. I made the straw toppers by punching the image in a circle punch (see more details below). Then I also punched another circle and matted it on a 11x17 piece of white paper. The idea behind this is if you have young kids at the table when they are done with dinner, give them a few crayons and they can color while the grown-ups finish their dinner.

To make the straw toppers you can mount your image in whatever shape that you would like. I made mine with the Marvy circle punches. It should be some where around 2-3".
To mount the image to the straw you cut a strip of cardstock 1"x3". And then score it on your Scor-Pal.

You score that piece at 1/2", 1", 2" and 2 1/2" (shown above).

Then you take a regular hole punch and punch holes as shown above.

Then fold the cardstock piece as shown above and place adhesive on these end flaps.

Adhere that piece to the matted image and trim any of the carstock strip that may overlap the image.

Hope this inspires you .... this is a great idea for family get-togethers, birthday parties, or just when you want a little extra flair to your drink.

Enjoy!
