Hey gang, feeling well enough to sit up today! Yeah! I'd made some videos before my enforced vacation and here's one for making placecards for your Thankgiving table.
I used the free templates here and foiled them. You don't have to foil them. If you don't have a Minc machine, but would like to foil, try this:
Using a Zig 2 way glue pen or a Sakura Quickie glue pen, trace over all of the inked (drawn) areas. Allow the glue to dry. The glue will remain tacky after it is dry. The Zig pen goes on blue but dries clear.
Lay a piece of foil over the dried glue (gray side down) and gently rub. The foil will quickly stick to the tacky glue.
In retrospect (with a clear mind) I would probably cut the acorns out completely after coloring them in. I'd fold a 3-4" x 2-3" piece of card stock in half and glue down the acorn so that it sticks up above the top of the fold. Either way works. Since my family won't sit where they are told (unruly bunch), I made some very cute cards from the November Simon Says Stamp card kit to put at their place. I could have put a big acorn with "thanks" stamped on it too!
Enjoy the video!
