    Kimberly Van Diepen: Hi! I am Kimberly Van Diepen. I am a Stampin' up demonstrator. Today I am here to show you this cute baby bottle themed table place card, so let's get started.

    First we are going to start off with a 63 piece of craft card stuff and you are just going to fold that in half. Use your bone folder to give it a nice crisp fold. The next piece of card stock is craft card stock two and three quarter two and three quarter and this is going to go on top but first we want to stamp it.

    So we are going to take some soft suede card stock and a very large background stamp and we are going to ink this background stamp with a rubber looking at you. We are actually going to stamp off first, before we stamp on to our card stock.

    So stamp on to your scratch paper and then stamp on to your card stock. Go ahead and ink up your two and three quarter by two and three quarter piece and now you can put your background stamp to the site.

    Now we are going to use dimensionals to pop that two and three quarter piece up. Place that into the center like this. Now the next thing we want to do is, we are going to use the decorative label punch and some melon mambo card stock and we are just going to punch out one label.

    We are going to step this to the side because we are going to come back to use it. Now we are going to use the melon mambo marker first and we are just going to go all around the baby bottle. You are going to huff on the stamp first to re-moisten the ink and then you are going to stamp it on suede card stock.

    Once you have that stamped, you want to cut that out. Now your baby bottle should look like this when you've cut your image out. So now let's put this table place card all together. First we are going to start out with the decorative label punch and we are just going to line that up center like that and then we are going to take the baby bottle and put that on, but I want to use dimensionals to give it a little bit of pop.

    Next we want to add the button and I've already threaded that with some linen thread right through the center and just tied it in a knot. We are going to use mini glue dots to attach the button.

    Last but not least is we are going to create a banner. Now to create your banner you'll just take your scissors, this is just a half inch piece by approximately three and a half inch long. You are going to cut a V on each side of the card stock and create a banner.

    Now I am just going to write onto my banner whatever food that we are having and then to make this really sparkly and wow, we are going to add some rhinestones. Now these are self-adhesive. I am just going to use my paper-piercer, lift them right up and press down.

    We are just going to add a dimensional on either side of the back an now we are going to add it to our table card and this is how you'd make a baby bottle themed place card for any baby shower.
