New Year's Place Cards

EZ To Make New Year's Place Cards.


Sorry for the delay in this post.  New Year's Eve is tonight, but if you still need some cute place cards for a party, there is still time to print and make these two.  It's hard to see it in the photos but the colors of the card is a glittery gold, silver and black and white.

Materials needed: Color Printer, card stock, ruler, craft knife, scissors and templates.

90 Degree Place Card


The template for the card pictured above is very easy to use but it will take a little longer to make than the other ones. You can open this card to a 90 degree angle and it will stay up.

For those of you who have a Mac and use Pages, it's very easy to insert the PDF into a Pages document, (select original size),  align the PDF center and middle, and then put a text box over the name tag area and type in the guest names.  Be sure to set the document margins to 0 first. 

 There are two card sets to print on one sheet of cardstock to save you a little money.  If you make a mistake when you are writing in a guest's name, you can cut out an extra name tag and paste it over the error.  Be sure to set your printer margins to 0.  It will probably work at .05, but better safe than sorry.

The template for the card pictured above can be downloaded here:  New Year's Place Card 1 PDF

Super Easy Place Card
















This one is very simple and can be done in a few minutes.  Just cut on the blue lines, then fold the card in half, backwards.  No scoring needed.  Presto!  A tent style pop up place card.  There are four cards on the page.  Have fun!

Happy New Year's !

Pop Up Christmas Place Cards

Pop Up Christmas Place Cards 
Merry Christmas, Happy Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Holidays, Season's Greetings!

Hi, Everyone!

I apologize for keeping you waiting so long for the place card templates.  My day job is teaching music and art at a K-8 parochial school and the Christmas season keeps me busy. We are on break now, so get ready for a slew of new patterns and information within the next week and a half .

The pattern today is for a Christmas Place Card.  There are three versions.  Two with different Grace prayers and one without. They are even easier to make than the Thanksgiving Place Cards and I have also made some layout improvements.  It's the same basic idea, but the square in the middle is easier to cut.  I have separated the patterns so you can choose just the ones you want. There are two card kits per page so you will also save on the cost of card stock. I have also resized the template so that it doesn't require border-less printing.  The instructions are on the card, so be sure to download it along with the patterns you choose.

The Santa, Frame and Holly graphics are courtesy of  The Graphics Fairy. It is a great website!

Here are the Christmas Place Card templates.  When you print them, make sure you do not resize them and make sure the center and rotate button is NOT selected.

In addition to the templates, you will also need card stock or very heavy paper, a craftknife, (a standard razor blade will do if you don't have a craft knife,) scissors and adhesive.

Please enjoy and let me know how they turned out.
