Name Tags for Family Reunions...with the Silhouette Machine

Hello My Dear Crafty and Stamper Friends:

This fun project "name tags" was made with my Silhouette machine...(electronic cutting machine), some punches,  dies, scissors and the computer
and I made it for a family reunion that I had...

I volunteered  to make the Name Tags for the different people/families present at this reunion...

Roses for the ladies...made from of the "Owl" punch from Stampin' Up! (I will have a tutorial later on these flowers...) and the leaves were printed with each name from the computer and then cut with decorative edge scissors ..

On the back I added a circle die cut felt and a pin...(all glued with Hot glue gun)... in order to be pin at the lapel of each guest...

For the gentleman, I used Bottles, because this was done at a winery ...(cut and design with the "silhouette machine") embellished with some vines...and The blank space was filled with printed names from the computer...also had felt pins on the back

At this family reunion There were 4 different branches from the main family...so I decided to "color code" each family... to facilitate recognition of each member within his /her family branch.

Brown for one branch, blue for the second branch, orange  for the 3rd and purple for the 4th

Here it is a view of the work in progress...

The children wore "Apple bibs" in their color family branch made out felt and hang as a necklaces...
These were die cut with "Spellbinders" dies... 

in the photo below you can see, The "blues" family who were one of the 4 branches of the family...
I used lots of glitter....and I had to use my whole dinning table for this project...

I included some  frames, that had the photo of the parent of that branch, matted in the color for that branch.
Here are the "blues"...

 and I gave away as well fans for the ladies (see inside small basket) with a small ribbon with the color from their family...
Here are the "kraft/ browns" ...

Here it is the branch with  the "orange" color...

and Finally, Here are the "Purples"...
Every body was happy with their name tags and specially the color code was a real help to identify members of a particular family branch... specially when you do not know everybody!!!

I hope I could share with you some ideas, for you to implement in your next family reunion and right on time now that family reunions are coming up because of summer time ...

Thanks for the visit...
