To make your holiday table more personal, we will be creating name placecards and napkin rings.
Supplies used for both projects:
Colored and neutral cardstock
Scissors (not shown)
For name placecards cut colored cardstock to 5” x 5”. Retain the remainder for napkin rings.
Score each 5” x 5” piece at 2 ½”. Fold.
Cut patterned paper to 2 ¼” x 4 ¾”.
Adhere to front of folded base.
If you plan to use your computer to generate the names, create your document with the names – sizing the font so that the names will fit within a 1 ½” x 4” area, off-center to the right.
Cut apart the names, making sure that the cut pieces measure 1 ½” x 4”.
If you will merely write the names with a marker, cut your neutral cardstock to 1 ½” x 4” and adhere to base. I created my names on the computer.
Stamp and color your holiday image. Cut out and adhere to base.
Here are several completed name placecards.
Take the remaining section of the cut colored cardstock and cut in half longwise to 1 ¾” x 8”.
Cut two pieces of ribbon for each holder and tape at either end of the base. To ensure that the ribbon would not pull out later, I put some narrow Scor-tape behind the ribbon, applied the ribbon to the cardstock, and then taped it down with Scotch tape.
Cut a strip of patterned paper to 1 ½” x 7 ½” and adhere to base.
Cut a strip of neutral cardstock to 1 ¼” x 6”.
Stamp as desired and adhere to base.
Here is the finished project.
