Fork, knife and spoon

I spied...these placemats at Anthro...have you?

I did love them too, but I didn't get them...
I thought about it, then I thought, hmmmmm, I could probably make
my own!

I had some white, super heavyweight 9 x 12 construction paper
 from Hobby Lobby ~ $1.77 for 50/sheets

Then I went to The Graphics Fairy and she had this and this
and made my own version of Fine Dining Placemats.

I couldn't find a dinner plate image

but, I do like the oval frame - it makes mine different than their's! 

Anthro's paper placemats are 50 for $24.00
 My version is 50 for $1.77!

I'm also thinking about personalizing the center ~
with Happy Birthday's, or some ones name..
for those fancy, Fine Dining occasions that happen so often here!  *wink*

I'm joining these parties today!

  1. Seriously?? Those are spectacular Marcy, I love your version a lot more!

  2. These are soooo very cute! I love them!

  3. Very Cool! I love your idea of personalizing them.

  4. What a great idea! Could add a monogram to the center too! Cathy

  5. Wow, this is gorgeous! (Found you over at The Graphics Fairy) Great idea! Ooh - I agree with Cathy - a monogram would look awesome too!

  6. Fantastic idea, they look great.

  7. I was going to buy them also, but then realized that they would only look good on a table if you were having a buffet, because once you cover them up with plate and utensil, you can't notice the design!! Love how yours turned out

  8. Great idea! Love it!

  9. Marcy, I mentioned your tutorial on my blog today :)

  10. lovely idea...I am your newest follower. will you follow me back?
