Place Card with a twist

My roommates decided that we should do a “swap” with each other while we were at Convention.  We each made a project for each other to make.  Since Cathy and I drove, we had the room to bring supplies with us.  Cathy loaded up her craft room in the back of the car and off we went.  *grins*

This is my project – each lady had enough supplies to make 8 place cards and a ribbon to tie them all together.  But there is a twist.  Behind the name place, there is a message to the “guest.”

What do you think?  Kind of cute, right? Note the Tangerine Tango Baker’s Twine.  Where did I get that from?  I made it!  I took Whisper White Baker’s Twine, water, a small container and Tangerine Tango re-inker.  I used about 15 drops of re-inker (my container was an empty Stampin’ Up! container from buttons) and filled the container about 3/4 of the way with water.  I soaked the right sized Baker’s Twine for a minute or two, until it absorbed the color.  Then I hung the Baker’s Twine up over my faucet to dry.  You can even do all of your twine at once (I had 36 pieces to color).

Supplies used (each link opens a new window – if it doesn’t have a link, that means it’s not available until August 1st when the Holiday Catalog goes live!!):
