Step 1 - Cut Paper
Measure, mark and cut the foundation card. The dimension for this card is 3 ¾ inch wide x 11 inches tall. Be sure to do this on a cutting matte, work table or piece of cardboard, so not to damage the table beneath with your craft knife blade.
Step 5 - Prepare Greeting Card
Next, mark and cut a piece of paper at 2 ¾ inches wide x 6 ½ inches tall. Using a hammer, emboss your message onto the card. You can use the ruler’s straight edge as a guide until you get the hang of it and feel more confident with your spacing.
Cut a small slice off one side of a wine cork to create a flat surface, then cut a 1/4-inch-deep slit in the opposite side. Voila! You have a simple-yet-elegant place card holder for your next dinner party. You can even make these in bulk for a wedding — they’re that easy.
Get crafty with place cards for your event. Emboss copper garden labels with the name of each guest, and then wrap them around the stem of inexpensive wine glasses so guests can take them home as a favor.
This tablescape is the perfect mix of edgy and organic thanks to matte black chairs, textured tablecloths, rose-colored wine glass and floral centerpieces. As a nod to their contemporary art museum venue, the bride and groom also formatted the place cards like gallery placards.
