• Cardboard cards with own hands - seating cards

    Wedding is a holiday, remembered for a lifetime. However, this does not mean that you have to spend fabulous sums for wedding celebrations. Some "trifles" can, and sometimes even need, not to buy, but to do by themselves - this will give them individuality. For example, any of us can fulfill the sales cards by ourselves.

    To be honest, the seating cards are a very important element of the holiday. A carefully thought out scenario of the celebration can fly "into the tartaras" if the guests are divided into small "piles" of interests and cease to participate in the entertainment offered to them. Even worse, if by chance there will be "warring" parties.

    But even a thought-out plan for accommodating guests can not be turned into reality without seating cards with names on the tables. At the same time, beautiful hand-made cards can be made with your own hands practically from any improvised materials.

    candy cards

    candy cards The easiest option is to use the cone shaped candies( also known as "truffles") in a pretty shiny wrapper for the base of the seating cards. In addition, you will need: tulle( cloth mesh), thin beautiful ribbons, printed on a sheet of paper names of guests.

    The process of creating candy seating cards with their own hands is as follows:

    • cut out tulle circles with a diameter of 15-17 cm, you can outline a suitable size plate;
    • in the middle of each such circle put a candy;
    • cut out printed names of guests from the general sheet( the text should be typed in bold and easy to read from a distance of at least 1 meter);
    • attach a piece of paper with a name to the bottom edge of the candy and raise the edges of the circle from the tulle up( in other words, repeat the contours of the candy);
    • we band candy cards with ribbons.

    Carded hearts

    Cardboard heart cards

    For "heart" seating cards you will need:

    • thick color paper,
    • marker( its color should stand out well on the paper you select);
    • scissors,
    • adhesive.

    First of all, we cut out the stencil heart, its width should be about 10 cm. Then circle the stencil by attaching it to the colored paper and cut it out. Now write the name and surname of the guest in the right upper "side" of the heart. We cut the heart from below( along the symmetry axis) with scissors to its middle. Using adhesive glue with a small overlap( five millimeters) one lower edge of the heart on the other( the protruding tip of the paper cut with scissors) so that the hearts are bent inscription inward - so the seeding cards will acquire volume.


    Butterfly card

    You will need white cardboard, a pencil, bright gel pens and scissors to create butterfly cards yourself.

    First make a beautiful butterfly stencil( the picture can be printed from the Internet).Then circle it, put it on the cardboard, and cut it with scissors. Colored gel handles repeat the contour of the butterfly, having deviated from the edge of 2-3 mm, if you wish, you can paste glitter or beads), write the name and surname of the guest. Then bend the butterfly in half, giving it a resemblance to a living creature), cut the "abdomen" and put the seeding card with a cut on the edge of the wine glass.

    Flowers or leaves

    Cards-bouquets No less beautiful are the seeding cards in the form of not too narrow ribbons( paper or satin), on which names are written. These ribbons can be bandaged several autumn leaves of maple or small bouquets of field or spring flowers.


    Bat cards-bows

    The easiest variant of the seating cards with their own hands are bows made of satin ribbon. The guest's name and surname in this case are written on the ends of the bow, and the ribbon itself should be wide enough so that the bow turns out to be beautiful and voluminous.
