Make your own - swatch place card
If you've ever ordered some Mustard Made swatches ahead of finding your forever locker, you might be wondering what to do with these colourful little samples. As we head into the festive feasting season, we have the perfect DIY for you!
With a bit of crafting panache, our swatches make the perfect place cards. Minimal effort for maximum impact, they're the cherry on top of a lovely tablescape, and make a super special keepsake for your loved ones.
what you need:
Your leftover Mustard swatches
Need a couple more? Order them on our website!
A paint pen
We used the brand Posca.
Some thin ribbon
We chose velvet! Ooh, luxe.
Using a paint pen, write out the name of your special guest on each swatch. We're partial to a script style of lettering for the fancy-pants factor, but write it out however you like!
If the blank canvas feels intimidating, sketch out your designs on a piece of paper first. The Posca pen we used takes a few minutes to dry, so if you need to wipe it off and start again you absolutely can!
Let the ink dry and apply a second coat for punchier pigment.
Cut equal lengths of ribbon, then thread them through the hole in the top of each swatch. Finish with a neat knot or a bow.
Admire your handiwork!
Set the table and finish it off with your custom, hand-made, colour swatch place cards. Time to dig in!
