How is your winter wedding planning going?
Yesterday, it was 70 degrees here so it didn't feel like winter at all. Today is 39 and raining, making it the perfect day for this simple DIY Snowflake Table Cards tutorial.
Putting it together is really easy and adds a little something to your winter wedding. Plus, it looks a lot better to have these rather than just plain table cards you can buy at the dollar store.
DIY Snowflake Table Cards
What You'll Need:
What You'll Do:
Cut the cardstock into 3.5-inch strips.
Cut those into 4-inch pieces, creating 3.5x4 inch rectangles.
Fold them in half.
Unfold and measure the snowflake punch on the card.
Write your guests names and table numbers on the cards, then set them up at your wedding.
Now, I'm going to be honest. These punches were really difficult to use. I pushed with both hands with all my body weight behind it in order to make these punches. And forget it when I tried the other ones in the Oriental Trading set. The punches wouldn't cut fully, so it was impossible to make these using them.
The Snowflake Table Cards that did come out were really beautiful. I actually love how they look, but this set wasn't ideal. You can follow these steps with a different stamp and emboss set. I have a bunch of punch sets that I do love that work really well, so I know these are possible. I'm really in love with my EK Tools punches, so I would suggest picking up something from that line in order to create these table cards for your wedding. But if you really want these exact snowflakes using this set, I hope you have a strong and patient fiance (and a lot of supplies. I had a 25% success rate with these).
