Let's Eat!

This week, Anything Goes at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. I'd like to share a project that was super-fun to make. Place cards!
I believe in family dinners. At our house, the meals are relaxed, casual, and fun. Shouldn't the table reflect that mood?

These place cards were super-easy to make. The spoon was stamped, lightly colored and fussy-cut. Since the spoon image is fairly symmetrical, I stamped two spoons for each card and placed them back-to-back so they can be seen from all directions. The bases are old children's blocks that I found at an antique store. Since they were in rough shape, I got them fairly cheap. They also sell new wood letter blocks at the dollar store. I'm certain that with a bit of sanding and inking, you could create a similar look with the new, dollar-store blocks.
(Don't forget to make a few extra cards in case someone drops by unexpectedly for dinner!)

Anything Goes this week, so don't forget to show us what you're created!
Link your project to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog and your project could win a $50 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp.  We draw a new winner each week. Your project could also be chosen to be featured in our weekly designer spotlight.

  4. Ha! I knew this was your project before I even looked at the name! That's probably because it was insanely unique and I loved it at first glance! This is what happens every time I see your projects. I really love these and if I knew how to cook, I'd make a dinner just to show off something so clever!
