DIY Ribbon Style Place Card + Free Template
With so much inspiration on Pinterest for wedding place cards, it can become difficult making a decision. I have created this tutorial as an easy, DIY way for you to save money and also achieve a high quality outcome that you’re happy with. All of the information you need is in the video tutorial above, but I’ll write it all out for you here as well for clarity.
Step 1: Gather your equipment
1. Scissors or a craft knife (+ ruler and cutting mat)
2. Printed DIY Ribbon Style Place Card Template (linked below)
3. Foliage for decoration (I’ve chosen rosemary for a rustic feel)
Step 2: Font Download
Download the ‘Great Vibes’ font from Font Squirrel and install: https://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/great-vibes?q%5Bterm%5D=great+vibes&q%5Bsearch_check%5D=Y
Step 3: Download the DIY Printable Template
Download the DIY Ribbon Style Place Card Template and begin customising your place cards. All you need to do is click the text and replace the sample names with your guest names.
Step 4: Cut
Begin cutting your place cards! You can either use scissors or a craft knife, whichever you are more comfortable with. I like using a craft knife as it gives you more control and straighter edges.
Step 5: Put Together
Punch a hole in the place card for the string to go through. You can then cut a piece of string the length that you want and tie your foliage and place card together. Then pair this with your menu and you have a beautiful dinner setting with place cards!
If you’re wondering where to purchase your paper from, I would suggest checking out Ebay which is where I found the paper used in this tutorial. It’s called ‘Botany’ and goes through an inkjet printer beautifully! Here’s a link to the Australian seller I purchased this paper from: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Botany-A4-Size-115gsm-Enviro-Paper-100-ReCycled-Brown-S5111-/291688352071?var=&hash=item43e9fb0947
If you would like to purchase a DIY printable menu instead of creating your own, you can find them on my website here: https://www.paperalphabet.com/product/minimal-script-wedding-menu/
I am happy to create custom menus as well, so if you would like the font to match the Great Vibes one used in this tutorial this is certainly possible.
