I really didn’t need place cards for the party….there were only 8 of us....but they are sooo fun I couldn’t resist. I started out by printing out cards with everyone’s name on them in colors that coordinated to the birthday cards with a orange-red boarder. Then, just cut around the boarder and the names are good to go.
Besides cardstock to print the name cards you need raffia ribbon, a hole punch, and some……
……awesome colored pop! I choose Jones Soda Pop because they just happened to have the colors I needed. And besides, they have awesome pictures on the front, taken by real consumers! Now, since this was a beer themed birthday I should have used beer instead, but some of the party goers were underage so this is a great alternative, and ohhh so colorful!
Punch a hole in the top or bottom of your name card, dependent on how you want your display to look. I choose top.
Tie with raffia (or any other ribbon of your choice)……
And snip the edges for a completely customized place card/favor that won’t break the bank. If you notice my names are upside-down. Well I didn’t notice until they were all done. Next time the bottom right corner will do the trick. You live and learn right?
Here is the budget breakdown:
· Cardstock – free from my collection
· Raffia – free from my collection
· Jones Soda’s – $9.38
Total: $9.38 for 8!
