tutorial #1

Hello Brides and DiYers!  I believe that handcrafted items give more meaning to any celebration, especially a wedding, so this month I am bringing you an easy tutorial for making beautiful and unique escort cards.

Materials you need:

faux flowers, tags, pen, x-acto knife, decorative tape (washi tape), number stamps, ink pad for stamps, scissors.

Step One:

Write the name of the guest with a pen in the lower left hand corner of the tag.  Stamp the table number next to the name.

Step Two:

Make a cut in center lower part of the tag.

Step Three:

Cut a flower with stem from the branch.  Insert stem of flower through the cut in the tag.

Step Four:

Tape to secure the stem of the flower to the back of the tag with either clear tape or decorative tape.

Step Five:

admire your work

Step Six:

Tape the tags to a door (this is our chippy pink door) or any other surface and let the guests find themselves!

(this is the first of a monthly tutorial column i will be writing, so come back often!)
