And now my final project for today - the Origami flower place cards I've been promising to show you for the past few days!
Aren't these just the cutest things?? I made them for our dinner table for Mother's Day. They are origami tulips, leaves and stand. I got the pattern from a book called 'Minigami' by Gay Merrill Gross published by Firefly Books. I purchased mine at Borders Books and you can also find it on line at places like Amazon.com. They work up in a flash.
The stand has a little slot in the back where the stems just slip right in. I computer generated the names, punched them with the large oval punch and attached them to the front of the stand. I think these will look really pretty at everyone's place on the table tomorrow!
Thanks for checking in with me today - I made 10,000 hits today! and I am so very grateful to everyone for having interest in my 'stuff' here!
Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there - I hope you have a wonderful day with your families!Today's Quote from Poor Richard's Almanac by Ben Franklin: "Well done is better than well said."
