DIY Place Cards

What You Need


1. Punch

Position the hole punch in the lower corner of a place card, making sure to leave space around all sides for the stitches. Punch.

2. Cut the Fabric

Cut a small piece of fabric that is slightly larger than the hole.

3. Thread Your Needle

Typical embroidery floss is made up of six strands, but for this tiny stitching you only need three. Cut a length of floss, then gently pull it apart lengthwise to create two pieces of three strands each. Thread the needle with one of these three-strand pieces, and tie a knot at the end. (Set the other piece aside to use next.)

4. Stitch

Hold the fabric behind the punched hole. Starting with the knot on the back of the place card, use even stitches to secure the fabric to the paper. Knot off at the end and trim the floss.

5. Personalize

Write the names of your guests in your best lettering , place them on your tables and get ready to party!

    The best appetizers are finger foods that don't require any plates or utensils. But unfortunately even we get sick of crackers/cheese and chips/dip. Good news, party people: Most every food can be turned into finger food with the help of an easy-to-make pastry called a vol-au-vent.

    The best themed parties are definitely the ones that don't take themselves too seriously. After all, if your guests are already chuckling before they even arrive, you're well on your way to a great night.
