Print your guest's name from your computer in a cursive font on to card stock.
Start poking holes with an awl, following the curves of the name Take a long piece of embroidery thread and start embroidering the name.
(The best way to do this is to go up through the first hole, down through the second, up through the third hole, down through the second, up through the fourth hole, down through the third... etc.)
