Table Number DIY Project

This is not so much a DIY project as a really simple idea...using brown bags filled with fruit as either a table number OR as seating cards. Depending on the size of the bag that you buy, you can use these little treats in different ways. Either approach is just a really adorable way to bring a bit of charm to your table. This DIY is for seating cards, but really...it's super easy to translate this project in lots of different ways. Please note, we kept our bags without names on them, as...

Okay! Now on to the pies themselves. This was probably the easiest thing that I have ever done and coming from the world's worst baker (I swear, I'm not exaggerating)...that really says a lot. I fully admit that I cheated and bought pre-made pie dough. For one round, I made the filling myself but then I discovered that they actually make pre-made pie filling, so you know I jumped right on that bandwagon. Sad, I know. But they turned out so stinking cute, who cares! Materials Pie Dough...

I'd previously seen handkerchiefs and other bits of fabric printed on and really liked the idea of texture. I also wanted to create a keepsake. I ended up scouring ebay for about a month, collecting vintage handkerchiefs. In the meantime, I created a vintage-y layout using our silhouetted...
