Table Decorations


I was playing around in my journal,  trying ideas and one of my ideas was stamping the Cocoa Bean Butterfly onto the Museum Tag. That inspired the idea of creating place card tags for my family.  I created five tags with the initial of each family member.  I looked around and found four little vases to attach the tags too. (Need to find one more for the last tag)


  1. Stamp museum tag onto Valise papers using brown ink. Cut out.
  2. Distress edges using distressing tool.
  3. Smear light blue acrylic paint onto tag. Sponge edges with brown dye ink.
  4. Die Cut Classic Tags from Valise Paper. 
  5. Stamp Museum Tag over circle classic tag.
  6. Distress Edges using distressing tool.
  7. Smear light blue acrylic paint over surface.
  8. Stamp letter using brown ink, apply sticker or hand write the name on the tag. :)
  9. Stamp Cocoa Bean Butterfly on Shrinky Dink using StaZon brown ink.
  10. Cut out leaving a little extra on the top by the head to allow for a hole punch.
  11. Punch hole.
  12. Flip over and color on the backside of the butterfly using copic markers.
  13. Heat with heat gun or in oven following instructions on packaging.
  14. Stamp Cocoa Bean Butterfly using brown ink onto Valise paper.
  15. Cut out butterfly.
  16. Color using watercolor pencils.
  17. Sponge edges using brown dye ink.
  18. Spritz Seam Binding Ribbon using blue glimmer mist.
  19. Tie initial tag with butterfly using twine.
  20. Attach the ribbon and tag to larger tag.
  21. Spritz white paper flowers with blue glimmer mist. Attach to center of butterfly.

Here is a close up of one of the Shrinky Dink Butterflies:


Here is a picture of the four vases with tags:

P1010472I created all five in a production line. Very fun. I also created additional shrinky dink butterflies. I want to take and tie them into the flowers in the mini vases.

These little tags could have been created with the pumpkins stamps or snowflakes.  I can see a bunch of different place-settings.  The statice is from my garden and I pulled a bunch in and spritzed with the glimmer mist to give it a blue tint.

Have a wonderful day!



Gorgeous project Sue!

Don't know how I missed this one, but I soooo love it! You are the cleverest!
