My First Place Cards!!!

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!  :)
