There is something so magical about this season. I love how the holidays bring the entire family around the table to share in a meal and fellowship. We laugh, engage in compelling conversations and just enjoy the company of one another.
The holidays also bring out the creative side of me and I’m always looking for fun and frugal ways to add a little something extra to the tablescape.
This year I am so excited to be partnering with BIC to help spread the holiday cheer with their #BICMerryMarking holiday project!
I’m sort of obsessed with bright, colorful pens and markers to write with and color code in my planners and to-do lists. Plus I love adding little splashes of color to notes and of course, various craft projects.
That is why I absolutely love BIC Mark-It™ permanent markers!
They are bold, vibrant colors that glide smoothly allowing the beautiful colors to shine through. Plus I also especially love that they are low odor and acid free making them safe enough to use around my kids when inspiration strikes, although for the moment I’m declaring these as “Mommy’s special markers” because I love them so much I don’t want to share them! 🙂
BIC Mark-It™ permanent markers come in 36 packs of fine and ultra-fine tip sizes or 8 packs of Metallic colors for endless inspiration, making them perfect for all your holiday arts and crafts projects.
As I mentioned before, I’m partnering up with BIC this holiday season in BIC’s Month of Merry Marking – inspirational ideas to make the holidays bright. BIC has put together a fabulous booklet of inspiration and craft projects using the various BIC Mark-It™ permanent markers in unique and creative ways to encourage you to become creative this season in your décor and gift giving.
As I was looking through the idea booklet, I fell in love with the idea of making personalized place cards to attach to the napkin rings on the table for our holiday dinner. What I loved about this project is that it didn’t require a lot of supplies that I had to go out and purchase because I already had everything I needed!
To make my festive place settings all I used was some cardstock and twine along with the BIC Mark-It™ permanent marker in #EmeraldGreen, after all what is the holidays without greens and reds?
To start I cut a large square of the red cardstock into smaller squares, each to be personalized with someone’s name and an added touch of holiday cheer.
Next I wrote the name in the center then embellished with some fun free-hand holiday drawings. I absolutely love how the Emerald Green BIC Mark-It™ permanent marker color appears on top of the red. It’s bright, bold, metallic, silky and just beautiful. The color really pops!
In the corner of the small square I punched a small hole to thread the twine through to attach to the rolled napkin ring.
You know how much I love simple right? Well this project couldn’t be any simpler yet it adds a lovely touch of holiday cheer to the table and each family member will feel so special to have a personalized name card made especially for them!
