Robin's Nest: Design Team Application: TABLE SCAPE SNEAK PEEK

I'm feeling very FESTIVE! Welcome to my Robin's Nest Design Team Application post.
I have to say this past six months, (and my very first time as a team member) has been SO FUN, and I've fallen in LOVE with their papers, dew drops and GLITTER! So, I'm hoping for another term.

I'm working on a complete TABLE SCAPE for my Christmas Dinner. Here is a sneak peak of one of the pieces, the place mats. You can see the finished tablescape on my Robin's Nest Blog Post for Tuesday, Dec 6th.

Robin's Nest Supplies:
PAPER!!!!! Red Snowflakes, Black and White Holly, Black and White Pine Trees (I used the pseudo solids on the reverse sides)

Other supplies: fine art glitter, Cricut "Joys of the Season" Poinsettia and Holly, "Celebrations" confetti, stickles: crimson and gold, sewing machine w/ gold metallic thread, decorating chalks, red fine art glitter (tulip), Canson Drawing Paper 14x17", dark green card stock.

1. The poinsettia is 5" (green card stock), 4" (Black and White Holly), 3" (Red Snowflakes), cut off the leaves of the 2 red layers, assemble and then outline the edges with glue and add fine art glitter.

2. The holly is cut from Black and White Pine Tree paper (back side), make sure to cut one with the "FLIP" on so it's a mirror image. Make the berries red w/ stickles.

3. I actually adhered the "confetti" (Black and White Holly) to the background, then stitched in gold, some straight stitch over the confetti and then zig zag around the border. Then attached the poinsettia and holly as shown.

I hope you enjoyed this project!! I'm loving it so far, there is a centerpiece ANGEL and name cards coming soon! Don't forget to stop by the Robin's Nest Blog for my post on Tues, Dec 6th to see the complete tablescape!
