Hello, friends! Laura here today to show you how to create some pretty place cards for your holiday table. Sometimes the simplest décor can be the prettiest. These place cards are a cinch to put together and will add a little sparkle to your place settings.
Start by trimming your cardstock. My favorite size for place cards is to make them 4 inches by 5 inches. When folded in half the front of the card is four by two and a half inches. The trim and score board makes it easy to cut and score the place cards.
I cut out rectangles from gold sparkle paper to add to the front of the card with adhesive.
The word punch board is perfect for adding names to the place cards. I cut out the names from white textured cardstock. I trimmed a piece of patterned cardstock to go behind the cut-out letters. And then I cut a v shape at the end of each one.
You could stop here and simply add the cut-out names to the front of the cards, but I wanted to add a little something extra.
Paper die-cuts are pretty but can sometimes use a little extra touch. I used the crop-a-dile to add a fun gold star shaped eyelet to the top of each of the ornament embellishments. I added these to the place cards using a foam adhesive square.
These cards are not fussy; however, you could dress them up even more by adding a ribbon or additional embellishments to them. Creating a simple place card is great when you have a lot of guests you are hosting.
The gold paper makes them festive and fun! The word punch board is one of my new favorite tools for adding names or words to my projects.
