Christmas at the Kids’ Table

It’s no secret that I absolutely love Christmas and I have fond childhood memories of sitting at the “kids’ table” for Christmas lunch. These days I’d probably rather be there than sitting at the “adults’ table” talking about how exhausted we are after all the seasonal preparations!

Handcrafted table settings are one of my favorite things to create and Stampin’ Up! makes it so easy. I created this fun Christmas setting for the “kids table” using the Tags & Trimmings Bundle (item 146062) from the holiday catalog and the super-adorable Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper (item 144629) which is perfect for this table setting.

I created the cutlery pocket using the Trim Your Stocking Thinlits Dies (item 144682). I added texture to the Crumb Cake Cardstock (item 120953) using the Burlap Stamp Set (item 143982) and the Crumb Cake Classic Stampin’ Pad (item 126975). And I used the Tags & Trimmings Stamp Set (item 144832) to add the sweet holly using the Old Olive Classic Stampin’ Pad (item 100702) and Pear Pizzazz Classic Stampin’ Pad (item 131180). I stamped the buttons using Real Red Classic Stampin’ Pad (item 126949), then finished with a Linen Thread bow (item 104199).

The Tags & Trimmings Stamp Set did the rest of the work! I fussy cut the little cars for the straw and the card and used the paper to make the Christmas cracker. Then I tied the ends of the cracker with Real Red 1/8″ Solid Ribbon (item 144631). The best part is . . . you can use your Paper Snips to curl this ribbon, and it works beautifully!

Other products used for this project were the Big Shot (item 143263); Paper Snips (103579); Gusseted Cellophane Bag (item 141704); Vellum Cardstock (item 101856); Gold Binder Clips (item 141673), and Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies (145372).

It’s hard to believe Christmas is just around the corner and hopefully I have inspired you with other ways to get creative with your Christmas table this year!
