Today’s project was a relatively quick one for our upcoming wedding. We are getting together with the wedding party the Friday before the big day, and I wanted to create some place cards that would easily help the wait staff know what everyone ordered.
I made all of these rehearsal dinner place cards using only my Cricut machine. First I found the “Place Cards” background in the New Arrivals cartridge that I had bought a couple years ago. Then, I used the Bohemian Wedding place card design to add a little side embellishment. This worked out great, since that design was available through my Cricut Access account. Lastly, I placed a square in the center and set it to be a score line, then placed another score line where I would make the fold.
From there, all I had to do was stick a piece of white cardstock on a Cricut mat, put it in the machine, and let it go to work. About 30 minutes and 5 sheets of paper later I had 20 rehearsal dinner place cards!
Tip: If the scoring tool doesn’t make the score lines noticeable enough, feel free to go over them again using a scoring board. I own the Martha Stewart scoring board here.
