On a whim two nights before my wedding I decided I needed to make place cards. After some google searching around I found the Origami Place Card with Stand directions for free and decided to give it a go.
I really like the design of these place cards. They are relatively easy to make and they stand very well. I made the 38 I needed in a couple of hours. I feel that the directions are simple enough that, even if you don’t have origmai experience, you could make these.
The Origami Place Card makes a rectangular surface which you can decorate as you see fit. I printed my name cards using the Mathilde font (available for free) and glued them on. I see lots of possibilities for other ways you could decorate or otherwise label the front of the place card.
