This project is easy when you use a pad of patterned paper (commonly sold for scrapbooking) that comes packaged in matching colors; the kind used here came from a pad of 6-inch-square paper by Making Memories.
Place Cards How-To
1. Using a utility knife and a ruler, cut a piece of striped paper into six 3-by-2-inch cards. Write guests' names on the cards or have them calligraphed. Cut 1-by-4 1/2-inch stripes for bases. Roll each strip, overlapping ends slightly; tape on outside with 1-inch piece of satin-finish tape.
2. With tape at back, use scissors to cut a slit halfway through base at each side (tape should be centered between slits).
3. Slip finished card between slits.
