Hello Crate Paper fans! I'm back again with some simple place cards that would work well for your next Winter themed party!
To start I chose 3 12”x12” patterned papers that would work well for the base of my place cards. I used my paper trimmer to trim them to 4”x7” each, then used a bone folder to fold them in half.
To create my BRRR place card, I started by trimming a piece of calendar paper from my 6”x6” paper pad. The calendar paper from the paper pad works great because you can choose which month works best for your event/ place cards and then cut it out. On the front of my card face I added some loose netting, a hand cut December paper and a couple of tags from the acetate ephemera pack. I then layered the pieces together and used my sewing machine to stitch them down. I used white/gold twine to connect the polar bear tag to the small brrr tag and strung them together. I finished by adding a gold glitter snowflake from the sticker pack.
To create my mason jar place card, I started by tearing out a page from an old book, and then used my sewing machine to stitch it to the front of my card. Next, I filled my mason jar pocket with the tiny ephemera & sequins that come in the mason jar kit. Lastly, I adhered the mason jar to the right side of my place card. On the left side I layered some snowflake die-cuts with some loose thread and foam adhesive dots.
On my last card (the Joy place card), I started by layering a hand cut brrr tag from a 12”x12” piece of Hot Cocoa paper. Then I trimmed a small piece of burlap and layered it on top of my card. I used a sewing machine to stitch the burlap down. Next, I added a small piece of loose netting, followed by a small piece of book paper. To finish up my card I added a few snowflake ephemera pieces using foam dots and a clear “joy” acetate die cut.
I hope that my post today inspires you to create festive handmade place cards for your next hosting event!
