The rosette ribbons were decor for the chair backs at the rehearsal dinner. They are quite large and "in your face," but fun and easy to make! Bazzill card stock in Swimming Pool and Strawberry from my LSS, Scrapbook Dreams, were used. The white is shimmery card stock from my stash. The rosettes were made by hand with the Martha Stewart scoreboard (that was before the Cricut Ribbons and Rosettes Cart was released!). Once the rosettes were scored, they were punched with the scallop doily lace and heart lace edge punches from Martha and an EK Success scallop edge punch. Tie the Knot Cricut Cart was used for the lettering and swirly hearts. Satin ribbon was attached to the backs of the items to tie them to the chairs

Notice that each place card is proportional to the length of each name. I devised a formula to add an allowance for the punched edges, to conserve paper "boo-boos!" The corners of the white mats are rounded and have hearts from the the punched-out edges, with half pearls in the centers and string pearls through the punched heart lace.
I hope you are "inspired" by these projects. Thanks for peeking in today!
