DIY Place Cards
What You Need
- ½-¾" round hole punch
- Paper place cards
- Cotton fabric
- Embroidery floss
- Embroidery needle
- Fine tip marker
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.)
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.
Write the names of your guests in your best lettering , place them on your tables and get ready to party!
