Paintchip Seating Card Display for Under $10

I’m closing down at my last week of work. Woot! I’m feeling a little bit nostalgic today, and seeing as it is Throwback Thursday, let’s throwback to a year ago this week, to my friends John and Noeleen’s wedding.

Noeleen and I have a lengthy history sorting out event nametags and seating assignments, so it was appropriate that I helped her out with her seating card table. Do you recognize where these came from?

Paintchips. Over 80 shades of coral and pink – her wedding colors. This concept was loosly based on this yellow art piece featuring 1,200 names for yellow I made several years back (more throwback!)…AND it harkens forward to the art piece we made last month for John and Noeleen’s living room (you can see that over at Queen Latifah).

For the base, I just double stick taped a couple of pieces of white foam board, then ran around the edges with some striped washi tape. Dressmaker pins, a gold Sharpie, and desktop easel and whamo: an awesome seating card display for under $10. Not bad.

Happy anniversary to John and Noeleen!

    There is a paint company that has its paint chips in the shape of leaves. This lends itself wonderfully to artworks of trees…

    That was an incredible idea, and congrats to the couple! I just wanted to say I’m so glad I found this page. Saw the name Aunt Peaches and it brought back a lot of really good memories from growing up, and more so as I read. Great place you have here, can feel it through the words.
