Heart Escort Card Display and Arrow Template

Tools and Materials

Paper Source 8 1/2-by-11-inch cardstock
Scissors or craft knife
4-by-4-foot paper
4-by-4-foot lauan board
1-inch white panel nails
1/8-inch white nylon cord
8 1/2-by-11-inch card stock

How-To

  1. Fold the paper in two, draw half a heart against the crease, and cut it out. Trace it onto lauan board, then hammer in nails 2 inches apart along the outline, leaving about 1/2 inch of each exposed.
  2. Knot one end of the cord around the head of one nail (it doesn’t matter which one) to serve as your starting point, then loop from nail to nail across the heart. There’s no wrong way to do it, just make sure to wrap the cord around the exterior a couple of times to de- fine the shape. When you’re done, knot the other end around a nail.
  3. Open our editable arrow-card PDF file, add guests’ names and table numbers, print onto card stock in your color of choice, and cut out. Tuck the arrows into the cord, arranging them alphabetically in loose rows, so guests can easily find their names.
