I was asked to make place cards for the Thanksgiving dinner table. My hostess was going to send me an oak leaf pattern. There would be 12 holiday guests. I thought about my lack of interest in mass production and how I was already dreading tracing and cutting each leaf.
Tim Holtz and his Layered Leaf Die and Embossing Folder to the rescue! I added some inks to the leaves, and cut tags with the Tim Holtz Tiny Tabs and Tags Die. I tied the leaves and tags together with Hemp strings and gold thread.
Pinterest inspiration came to my rescue again with these.
