Hello lovelies! I'm sorry its taken me so long to get this post up, but with the wedding in roughly 8 weeks time (hehe!!), I've been concentrating my efforts on getting everything finished! Anyway if you're interested to see how I've made our place cards then here is my how to guide.


You will need:


  • Ruler
  • Prit stick
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Guillotine 
  • Double sided sticky tape
  • Doilies
  • Card

Step 1
Mark your card at 10cm in width and 7cm in length, then guillotine to size.

Step 2
Next measure and mark the card at 6cm and 7cm across the width. Take some scissors and score the marks using the guillotine.

Step 3
Fold the card along the scores- the first line back on the card and the next
line away from the card (as below).

Step 4
Take a doilie and place over where you would like the design to be on your card. Turn the card and 
doilie over and draw the outline of the card onto the doilie. Cut out the doilie and then stick the doilie onto the card.

Cut a small piece of double sided sticky tape and stick onto the right hand side of the card.

Step 6
Next take a spare piece of card and guillotine into a triangle shape. (I didn't do an exact measurement for these as they're purely to stand the place cards up.) Then take the triangle and score a small fold along the length of the triangle and fold.

Peel off double sided stick tape and apply the wedding favour. Add a name label, and you're done!




These are really simple place cards to make with a rustic bohemian feel which matches in with our save the dates and wedding invites. I hope you like them and if you do decide to make these, tweet me a photo!

I will be doing a thank you card tutorial next, so stay tuned for that! Don't forget to check out the video on how to make these too! ^_^
