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.
