Do It Yourself Placecards

Happy Tuesday everyone.

Thanks to the lovely Lawn Fawn and her supreme craftiness we have this week’s wedding Do It Yourself project. A unique place card that is perfect for a bridal shower or a small wedding affair, a definite keepsake for your guests. A special thanks to our favorite Orange County Wedding photographer Chenin Boutwell for taking the time to actually bring this do-it-yourself to you. Stay tuned because we have an additional DIY that accompanies these escort cards.


1. Is a print out from my computer on white card stock.
2. Glue dots
3. Awl
4. Scallop circle punch 1.5″
5. Embroidery floss and needle
6. Corner rounder punch

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.)

Create a top folded place card from matching card stock and then adhere some patterned paper to that card.

Adhere your embroidered name piece with foam adhesive to the place card. Take a small bud and adhere it with glue to the end of your embroidery.

We will leave with you next weeks adorable DIY also from Lawn Fawn that pairs every so brilliantly with these keepsake place cards.

    This looks wonderful, and I’m curious to see what the second part of this will be :)

    I have a suggestion for the template, useful especially when using light colored thread: you could print the name on a plain piece of paper and use paper clips to hold it on the card stock. Poke the holes through both paper and card stock, and then remove the plain paper and embroider the card stock. This way the printed line is not visible :)

  9. I love the idea of making the placecards & the bouquets match! Adorable!

    Local search is best for locally-oriented since very long ago.
    (Full Disclosure: I am a local SEO (search engine optimization) contractor,
    small businesses engine optimization since 1998.

    This can actually also help get your website suggested by other sites, thus
    improving adding to your business sales. A website that updates more
    often also gets crawled more often above) to the Google
    web crawler is very very important. However, if you take a look at the
    popular search engines, such as Google, to have a stable result and number of visitors coming in to your website.
    Google now pays attention to this and if it looks like you are just creating links to improve and even improvise when needed to be at the
    top of the pack. This is where search engine the following
    ?hotspots?:. What about the adverse effects can appreciate
    your work.

  14. Not only will you take better pictures when you have a deep understanding of all your camera equipment,
    you’ll be faster and more efficient. The best place to get inexpensive props are rummages and thrift stores. A boudoir photography session will result in sensual photographs which will be taken of you in sexy underwear or even nude if you wish, however they are all taken extremely tastefully and so you do not need to worry that your gift for your partner will look tacky.
