shaken not stirred !!! place settings

Hi All
I have been asked to make some 007 themed  place settings for a friend who is having a 007 themed dinner party and I saw these little Dinner Jackets on pinterest and just thought they would be perfect I had to have a go....I have to make 10 for men and 10 for woman [to]..I am also doing a demo on crafting for men on 16th may  so they have a dual purpose ...whoop whoop. they stand about 15cm high .you will find the template for them on Marizhaa's blog  here ... so thanks to Marizhaa for  very kindly sharing this fab template. I used heavy black cardstock so they would stand well. The ribbon and gems are from Meiflower crafts. the tiny little bow I made for the dickie-bow was made using my Craft-Dee BowZ   bow maker..isn't it can make so many bow sizes and amazing tassles with this essential bit of kit.I have left the tag empty for the guests names...These would be fab for prom cards and wedding  placements  too  mind you they would take a long time to make them tho I guess ...unless you had a brother cut and scan ...[wishlist top 10]
