Heart Escort Cards How-To

Martha Stewart Weddings, Summer 2010

These three-dimensional escort cards are as easy to make as they are refreshing to look at. At first glance, they appear to have been blown onto the table by a warm summer breeze. Following the instructions below, make them using a heart-shape craft punch, bright-white ink, scissors, glue, and paper in a range of watery hues that complements your palette.


How to Make It 
1. Cut a slit from the bottom point of each heart to 3/8 inch from the top center. Calligraph with white ink. 

2. Place one side of the slit atop the other to create a pop-up effect; glue. 

3. Snip off the "tails" of extra paper at the bottom point of the heart.

    What the heck are "Escort Cards"????

    I searched everywhere and couldn't find a punch to use. I finally ordered 3 different sizes and the 3" appears to do the trick. It is the "Giga" sized punch.

    I am having trouble with the craft punch; don't know what size heart shaped punch to buy or where to order it since our town is sorely lacking in this kind of shopping. Also, could you tell us what kind of glue to use. I am not very crafty but this idea is too adorable to pass up.
    Thanks so much.
