Step by Step Instructions
1 How to achieve a different feel to your Christmas table just by changing the colour scheme. Here is a modern approach using a purple & white theme.
2 Here we have a traditional feel with reds, greens & gold.
3 To make the snowflake place setting. Cut 2 large snowflakes using white glitter card through your die cutting machine. Then cut 1 small snowflake & a circle of card the same size as the large snowflake centre.
4 Fold a 21cms x 6.5cms piece of acetate in half and then one side in half again to create an easel base. Stick the snowflake to the acetate making sure the 2 larger flakes are lower than the acetate edge. Layer the 2nd snowflake on top with the flakes opposite to the ones below.
5 Place the small snowflake in the centre and apply a small gem to the finish. Add dots of silver stickle to the snowflakes and place the remaining circle on the back of the acetate to cover the tape. Add your name to a piece of glitter card and place on the inner base of the acetate with foam pads to raise the name. The snowflake will rest behind the name.
6 To make a napkin ring. Cut a piece of harlequin grungeboard to 15cms x 5.5cms and swipe the Tim Holtz dusty concord distress ink over the piece. Now take a piece of cut`n`dry foam and swipe over the grungeboard to get the ink into the debossed areas of the grungeboard.
7 Punch 6 holes into both edges of the grungeboard using the diamond shape as a guide.
8 Starting from the top back, lace some ribbon through the holes crossing over the ribbon as you go. At the last hole finish with a knot and bow.
9 If using plain paper napkins, stamp an image using the dusty concord distress ink and a Christmas stamp to coordinate the colour scheme.
10 If choosing the red and green options why not make the napkin ring out of the mistletoe stamp.
11 Stamp the mistletoe stamp with the Perfect medium ink pad and emboss using the arctic embossing powder onto a piece of card that is a bit longer than the stamp itself.
12 Trim the card so you have a straight line across the top of the card. Then trim in just below the hanging chandelier and stopping at the mistletoe.
13 Cut around the mistletoe and using the cut`n`dry foam, ink the leaf area with the peeled paint and then the rest piece using the old paper ink. Embellish the piece by dotting frosted lace stickles onto the mistletoe berries and attaching a small red bow. Fold the piece into a ring and secure with glue or double sided tape.
14 For the red colour scheme make a mini easel place card. Add a stamped image in the centre. Add the name below the image and tie a ribbon into a bow around the base of the easel card, this will act as the stopper for the easel. Have a great Christmas whichever colour scheme you go for & don`t forget to use the cracker template to complete the table.
