I had a wonderful response to my recent post where I shared some of the pieces I created for my sister’s wedding, and several people have asked how to make the items shown. Be sure to also take a look at this post HERE which shows you how to make the paper flowers to decorate the placecards.
If you are hosting a small, intimate or informal event, you can still offer some great little touches such as place cards and it is really easy to create these yourself with a few basic scrapbook supplies. Even at a very casual event, you might like to ensure your guests are seated as you would like – so placecards become necessity – they also make a lovely keepsake for guests to take home.
These are easy to make – see the tutorial below.
- Cut labels or plain squares from patterned scrapbook paper (see note below).
- Fold paper shapes in centre and crease well.
- Using double sided tape or an adhesive runner, attach your smaller piece to your larger piece, taking care they are centered
- Decorate as you wish. I have printed names onto clear labels and added some simple rolled paper flowers
Note: These cards are made using the Nantucket Collection
from Pink Paislee
. I hand cut the square and the shapes are made using a Cuttlebug
machine and Spellbinders Labels One Dies
. (If that all sounds a bit like gobbledygook to you – give your local craft or scrapbook store a call and I am sure they will help you out!) The labels used were Avery Clear Address Labels J5303.
