This super cute DIY project is perfect for making your guests feel special. See more clever do-it-yourself wedding projects here.

You will need:
Card stock
Complimentary colors of thread

To begin, cut your card stock into whatever shape and size you like. You can also use special craft scissors to give the cards a scalloped or funky edge.

Either write or hand stamp your guest’s name onto the card cut out.

Next, use craft glue to secure lollipop sticks in between the card stock cut outs.

Simply drop lollipop sticks into center hole of thread spool and you’re done. So easy and so adorable!

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.
