All is calm convention table cutlery holder goes to a wedding with Crisp Cantaloupe and Calypso coral

Morning everyone.

Do you remember the gorgeous pictures of my 2014 convention table.  

Here's a close up of the cutlery holder

Isn't this just cute.  Lots of people have asked how I made this.

I was also asked to do an inspiration station at our team training on Sunday with the lovely Michelle.

If you would like to be part of an amazing and creative team then do get in touch or go to

We discussed what she wanted me to do and we decided that recreating the above table would be great, but for another occasion.

So I have remade them, in lovely Wedding colours.

Crisp Cantaloupe meets calypso coral.

I used the box board for the table favours and the napkin rings this time.

The gorgeous flowers have been inked in matching colours and to set of these gorgeous tones i have used Pistachio Pudding and gold glimmer paper.

And here's what you need and the instructions.


Park Lane DSP
Calypso Coral Cardstock
Crisp Cantaloupe Cardstock
White Organza Ribbon
Glue Dots

Envelope Punch Board


Cut Calypso coral cardstock to 10” x 4”.    Using a sponge edge the cardstock with calypso coral ink.
Cut the crisp cantaloupe cardstock to 9 15/16ths” x  3 7/8th”.  Using a sponge and calypso coral ink distress the edge.
Stamp the sentiment on the top
Adhere the two bits together, making sure there is a border on both sides and at the top.
Cut the DSP to 6” x 5”
Using your score board score 3 sides at ¼ “ and ½” .  Burnish
Score the other side at ½”
Using the Envelope Punch Board.  Punch on the side scored at 1/2 “ by lining the paper up at 1” mark.  Turn the DSP over and again punch at 1” mark.
Using your trimmer cut the edges away on each side to form a tab in the middle.  Fold over
Cut away the three outer small squares at the bottom 2 corners.  And cut the along one edge of the last remaining small square.  This will leave a small flap.  Fold edges in to form a small box shape.

Using tombow glue this to the back of your cutlery holder, taking care to line up the bottom.

I hope you enjoy making these for your christmas tables etc.

But I would ask that if you case this project you please link back to me.
