Summer is definitely here... hot days and lots of activities on the calendar! I am going to host a Tie Dye Party for the 4th of July, so I am excited to share the Place Cards that I am going to use for my party. Many of you know that in addition to my crafty duties, I host events, make crafts for my Pop Up Shop and also create custom orders. This means I need to make quick crafts for my own parties - so this is a really fun craft that you can make in about 20 minutes max!
Here are the supplies for my DIY Place Card:
Sizzix Big Shot
Sizzix - Eileen Hull Designs - Place Card & Flowers Die (# 657722) (Retail: $19.99)
Patriotic Scrapbook Paper
Bling - I used gems by Darice
Aleene's Turbo Tacky Glue
Scrapbook Adhesives Foam Dots
Step 1: Die cut your scrapbook paper using your Sizzix Big Shot and the Place Card & Flowers Die. I cut my patriotic papers and then my glitter papers. CRAFTY TIP: You do not need much glitter paper because you are only running the flowers - not the place card portion.
Step 2: Once your papers are ready, you can use your foam dots and Aleene's Turbo Tacky Glue to adhere the layers of the glitter flowers and then the red/blue bling gems. It only takes a small dab of glue. Next, you let your place cards dry... if you use the Turbo Tacky, it won't take long at all!
Step 3: Once the Place Cards are created, you can use them for your party. I plan to use them for my DRINKS & SNACKS TABLE, as NAME TAGS and also for RAFFLE PRIZE BAGS!!! There are many other uses such as for NAME PLACE CARDS, SCAVENGER HUNT CLUES and to DECORATE A CANDY BAR - you can easily make a few dozen for a party and your guests will love to your attention to detail.
