I was asked by a friend to make place cards for a wedding rehearsal dinner. I was a little nervous because I have never made place cards before and I needed to make 30 of them. Even though I was nervous about the project, they were fun to make and the best part is that my friend loved them. That is why I love crafting - it is the heartfelt feelings exchanged when you make something for someone and they really appreciate it!!!!
The wedding has a vintage/rustic them with Mason jars and twine, so I wanted to make the place cards complimentary to this theme. The wedding colors are brown with a pop of yellow, so I wanted to bring the pop of yellow to life in the place cards. The flowers are handmade by me and because my handwritting is never straight when I write, I chose to print the names using a script font.
The flowers were made using a 5 petal flower punch. I took 3 of the flowers
punched, got them wet and crumpled them up, let them dry, then glued them
together. They are fun to make!
I hope all of you, my followers/readers, enjoy this project like my friend did! :)
