I saw this wonderful post from Mama Jenn about Setting the Table and i loved the idea. I'm lazy, instead of finding, a large contrusction paper pad. I just went and bought a pack of 50 placemats from the party store for $3.00. Then I printed off the Nestle Place setting template that Mama Jenn used onto some holiday scrapbooking papers that i had in my stash. I've gotten mixed reviews from my family & co-workers who think this may be a waste, but then i've also heard "my daughter is 12 and she still doesnt know how to set the table properly". I took a drive to Lakeshore Learning this week for some holiday purchases and while i was there I was able to laminate the placemats!
fyi. this was some older American Crafts Christmas papers that i had on hand. I am looking forward to making some for January & February. But for those i'm only making 4 placemats each.
Thanks for looking!
