I wanted to try the same technique, but instead of a box I wanted to use it for today's TIOT challenge of creating something for a holiday table. I made this place setting ensemble featuring the very stylish Winter from the recently released Victoria Case for SCACD Winter Wonderland Collection. My hubby's niece, Jocelyn, was my inspiration...a true girl, but not girly. That's why I went with the soft blues and muted olive for my color scheme:
I was able to make Winter stand up by adhering sturdy cardstock to her legs/shoes and cutting a couple of slits to to thread them through and securing them underneath. I cut the strips of acetate longer so they would fan out more and spread around the plate.
I also made a little pocket to hold the silverware (no knife as you can tell...this is for the children's table). The little snowflakes on this pocket and the ones surrounding Winter is only available on the full sheet of 7 images of the Winter Wonderland Collection. Naturally, I'd create different place settings for the boys :). I love holiday festivities, decorating and gift giving!!! It really is the MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR!
There's a blog hop happening on Oct. 22 so come back for more fun and candy!
