Placecard Holders....

Happy Monday to all! Today I tried something a little different. Magnolia Down Under Challenge is Christmas Decorations/card. So I thought I would put Tilda on some placecard holders.
Now for this challenge I did not put names on yet, I will do that later. But you could put the names in the corner of the circle if you like!



I went to our local dollar store and bought Binder Clips and then tied a papertrey ribbon around each one. Cut a piece of cardstock to fit the bottom with Happy holidays punched out. Then I stamped four different images of Tilda on a circle. Chalked the edges just to give it that vintage look that I love so much. I coloured each Tilda with copics and placed glitter to each one just to give it that sparkle!




I am off to do some Christmas cards that I really want to complete by the end of the week. Before you know it December will be here. When do you usually mail off your Christmas cards?
I like to send them off by the first of December...especially the ones going to the States and over seas!

  15. Christine, you clever thing you. These are gorgeous. How creative of you! These are beautiful done. Love the images, the colours and your fab colouring job. Thanks for sharing.
    I mail my Christmas cards as soon as I get them done, which means at the very last minute before Christmas, hee hee--procrastinator that I am. I am better prepared this year because of my blog. Phew, I've got a few done!!! And I am going into my full christmas card-making mode now,

    Hugs.

  18. Wow, these are just so adorable. What a great idea. I'm trying to come up with a good one for my table, 23 people. Not sure if I have that many winter Tilda's. Course if we could get our order, I'm sure that wouldn't be a problem. What a fantastic project. Love it, love it, love it.

  28. Does one of these have my name on it? If I start the passport application process now I bet ya I can come over for Christmas dinner, lol!! Gorgeous project and such a cute idea, naturally, your colouring is gorgeous!! I tend to mail my cards out in the second week of December, but I think I will do it a bit earlier this year because I am planning on sending them to Alaska so they can be hand=cancelled at the North Pole!! Thanks for sharing with us at MDUC, I love seeing your creations!!
