Also, with the use of perforated business cards and a calligraphy pen, your end result will be an inexpensive alternative to (what your guests will believe to be) an expensive, customized piece of décor.
With just a few simple steps, these placement card holders can help your guests find their seats and you find peace of mind when the reception begins!
What You’ll Need:
Corks (plastic or regular)
Craft knife (X-ACTO knife)
Card stock or perforated business cards
Paper cutter (scissors)
Directions for Card Holder:
Take a cork and stand it upright. Using your craft knife, cut the cork lengthwise all the way through – taking off about ¼. The goal here is for the cork to lay flat on the table without rolling away. Cutting of this chunk will allow for the cork to have a flat surface to lay on.
Next, Lay the cork flat. Using your knife, cut a slit down the center, lengthwise, that a place card can slide into. Remember not to cut too deep. Your goal here is to create a slit that is just deep enough to hold your place cards. Voila! You have a place card holder! And, if you fancy a little variation, there is another way to make these beautiful pieces.
Take a cork and stand it upright. Now, cut a slit across the center of the top of the cork. This is where your placement card holder will sit. This is an upright, taller alternative. Using both can add some height variations to your table. Or, you can designate the taller, more whimsical placement card holders to label children’s seats, leaving the more elegant holders for the adults.
Directions for Cards:
If you are using card stock, print or write the names on the cards and cut them to size (whether you print or write will determine whether you should be cutting or printing/writing on the cards first). Once they have been given a name and have been cut to size, slide them into the holders!
If you are using perforated business cards, print or write names on the cards, punch them out and enjoy!
Whether you use card stock or perforated business cards, your placement cards should slide right into your new placement card holders with no trouble!
