Tea Party PlaceCard/Napkin Holder Tutorial

It is my pleasure to bring you the latest for my Tea Party Birthday!!.As you may know, all this month Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot is having their one year birthday celebration. The Design Team was asked to create a party theme and make the necessary crafts to make your party complete.

This week I am showing you how easy it is to make a place card/napkin holder. By using my Cricut and Design Studio, I created my card by using the cartridge George and Basic Shapes.

After cutting your card, score so the end flaps fold inward; your design should be showing on the outside. On the rounded end, come in 1/2 inch and cut a slit. This will allow the pointed end to slide through. Slide that end in about 1/4 inch and fold the pointed flap down. You can square off the point if needed. When you put this together, just adjust with your hands so it stands up straight. I cut my slit a little too long and this caused the tip, when put through, unwanted sliding room. Once I got it lined up where it should be, I used a dab of glue to hold it down.

Now it's time to decorate!!
I wanted to keep with my theme, so I did not need much to bring it together. Once again I used the Victoria embossing folder on the card and Swiss Dot for the flower. I just love Core'dinations paper for embossing and sanding!!

I added the large flower, lace and 3 little flowers. Then I cut the tag using my oval Nestabilities and 'Betty' was cut using the cartridge Cursive 101 on my Cricut.

Here is a side view of what it looks like... And here is my finished project now with the folded napkin inserted through the opening....

If you would like this file cut, please let me know and I will email it to you. If you can not use the file cut, I can send you a template to work with.
