The paper I used is from The Paper Studio called Barnwood Pretty from Hobby Lobby store. The Bike is also from The Paper Studio Spare Parts. Used my Score-Pal to make the project. Cut some left over lace and added it to the front of the table cloth.

This is my project flat. I wanted to show you that it lays very nice flat so you could mail it easily. I took extra pictures so you could see my project in all kinds of ways. I found the instructions on Score-Pal blog July 1, 2015 challenge #17 Summer Fun theme. It is called Ice Cream Stand Card and I made mind into a Picnic table. So if you would like to try making one there is the tutorial for you to try any question just ask and I would be happy to help you out. Rain or Shine 2015  b

How I added the food stuff was I cut a slit in the table and slide the bottom of each bag and glued it under so it would stay. I had some of these food things in my stash and they worked perfect. We has fried chicken, corn crisps, baked beans and bread. Rain or Shine 2015  u
