Posts Tagged ‘Tent Placecards’

I wrote a blog post about a  few video tutorials
Fancy Script Letters here on my crafty blog.

I really think that with very little practice
you can make your own beautiful
place cards
or other table decorations for your wedding.

Here is my step by step process
to practising and perfecting your own
handwritten table decorations.

Step One
Have a quick goosey-gander at some cool fonts online and select one that you would like to replicate.

Step Two
Have a practice, playing with the angle, swirl, size and style of fonts.
You will quickly find a font that you love recreating.

Step Three
Just start!
A lot of what holds us back when we create (DIY projects)
is that we compare our work to a perfect examples.
Banish this mentality and just start creating your beautiful work.
Use a pencil if this gives you more confidence 🙂

.

Step Four
Give yourself ample time to make your place cards
ensuring that you have time and resources to make some last minute copies.

After a bit of practice,  these only took me  5 minutes each

You know that there will be at a couple of guests who RSVP
after you have finished all the others!

For those of you who just can’t stand the thought of doing this much DIY,
head over to my post here, on printing your own place cards.
