Oo La La: "Mettez Vos Cartes la Semaine de Table" Continues…

Since Tuesday when I saw a crepe recipe on one of my favorite blogs, I’ve been feeling a little — I don’t know, how you say — French. I do a great French accent that has the staff rolling on the floor (But that would likely mean it’s funny and not very accurate or convincing.)

So, what do you get when the Party MOMster feels a little French and it’s “Put Your Cards On The Table Week”: Decoupage!

Yes, Decoupage: “the art or technique of decorating something with cut-outs of paper, linoleum, plastic, or other flat material over which varnish or lacquer is applied.” (Thank you Dictionary.com) It is derived from the French word découper, to cut up or out. Ok, class put your pencils away, it’s time for Art.

So, the staff and I picked two of their favorite cards with great color and images. We cut out what we liked …

and with the help of Modge Podge (a glue and sealer combined) lacquered them to two small picture frames.

C’est magnificant!

I was responsible for cutting out the cards. And a circle cutter from Creative Memories, always makes things easy, but look super finished. But, applying the Modge Podge is a great staff duty –it’s a very forgiving medium.

So, there you go. Mes gamins déchirent la maison (My kids are tearing the house a part). Since everything sounds nicer in French and I’m tired of saying these things over and over in English. You will be hearing the following in the Party MOMster household:

  • Réhabilitez le temps (Clean up time!)
  • Calmer! (Quiet down!)
  • Le fait de frapper non!(No Hitting!)
  • Manger!(Eat!)

And I bid you adieu.

P.S. (I know no French this is all compliments of Free Translation Online. But, the French accent is all my own.)
