The Finishing Touches

With Easter a little over a week away, I wanted to finish up my table decorations. If you remember a few weeks ago I created a center piece for my table using the New CottageCutz Easter dies, see my "Preparing for Easter" post. I only needed to add the finishing touches to my table by making some name place holders.

This is the CottageCutz die I am showcasing today.

I created the name place holders using wooden clothes pins. I painted the clothes pins white to match the wooden crate of the my center piece, then added a bit of brown ink to distress them. The clothes pins stand good with the jaws up, this way they can hold the name cards. I cut the CottageCutz Bunny, Girl die out of chipboard first and then added the colorful cardstock die cuts on top for added strength. I had some left over grass from the center piece, so I added a bit behind each CottageCutz Bunny. The final step was to create the name cards and slip them into the clothes pin jaws.

Here is my Easter table, all the decorations are done using the New CottageCutz Easter dies.

I hope everyone has a blessed Easter!
