Recycled QuicKutz Packaging

Grace plays waitress whenever she stays with us and has done this since she was a little bitty thing. This year we upgraded our "restaurant" and added lots of cool accessories! Grace also decided on a new name for the joint, which I thought was actually pretty clever. LOL. On the left side of the menu we do a "Today's Special" which, of course, is what I'm fixing for dinner. Randy always orders the special. ;) She also has a payment book which we stamped with the restaurant name on each ticket. After dinner, she tucks the ticket inside the check holder and places it on the table with a mint. ROFL! Oh, and I have to wear and apron and name badge as well. She is very serious about our restaurant. ;) We had so much fun making this set. I think it turned out super cute.

Here are the pieces close up. For the name badge I used a regular name badge holder from the stationary aisle. The same idea I did for the ladybug tag that was published in PaperCrafts Gifts From the Heart issue in April.

I made the table sign from QuicKutz Revolution die packaging.

Restaurant signs, also from QuicKutz Revolution die packaging.

  1. My goodness, you gals really did it up right! What a great imagination Grace has. That will certainly do her well as she gets older! Love your work, of course!


  2. Thanks, Mae. You know, I'm just kicking myself that I didn't get a picture of her with her apron and holding her ticket book!!! Argh.


Thanks for stopping by the studio. If you have any questions, please leave them in the comments or email me directly. :) ♥ ~Shar
