Place Settings Made for my Scrappy Sister Andrea

Good morning all!


I wanted to share a project that I completed for my scrappy sister, Andrea. She is hosting a holiday party today for a group of about 20 or more of her fellow sorority sisters: the ZETA PHI BETAs of the DELTA BETA ZETA Chapter of Queens, New York. Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. is an international organization of business, professional and collegiate women with an extensive history of community service. CLICK HERE for more information about this awesome organization.    


 Andrea asked me to create place settings that her sorors can use after the festivities are over. I found wooden plaques at A.C. Moore for about 30 cents each and went to work. Andrea provided the doves which she purchased and I painted. Though Provocraft has a digital GREEK ALPHABET cartridge available for purchase and use in the CRICUT CRAFT ROOM, I used my Gypsy and welded an "O" and an "I" to create the PHI. I LOVE MY GYPSY!!!! 


 Here are pics of some of the completed placeholders!
Thanks for taking a peek!
