Thanks very much for all the great words about my dad’s Lazy Susans! He reads the blog and was so happy! He also reports there are three or four more in the shop in various stages of preparation. I’ll keep you posted on the next installment of As the Lazy Susan Turns.
But here and now my latest tutorial is up on the Mod Podge Rocks blog.
With Thanksgiving coming I was trying to think of fun, different ways to make place cards and after brainstorming with a friend we came up with these vintagy chalkboard versions. They are very easy to make and the total cost (with extra left over) was about $8.
Once I got going on them my brain started racing with all the possible variations. You could make the bases look like records and use scans of vintage album covers on the tag. Or you could use baby pictures of the guests or vintage Christmas images with the bases made of vintage wrapping paper etc etc – kinda endless themey possibilities.
I’m contemplating making a version to sell in my Etsy shop what do you guys think?
The only downside I can see is that the tags are only 3” across with 1.5” taken up by the image which means you could only invite friends with names like Sue or Bob – your buddy Agamemnon will not be attending this soiree.
If you’re keen on the idea check out the full tutorial over at Mod Podge Rocks.
