wedding name cards

Into vintage? What about vintage DIY wedding place cards? They’re super easy to make. I came up with the idea for these name cards when I was leafing through some of the vintage children’s books that I own. I’ve got a super, huge stash of them from resale shops and rummage sales. Some of them are classics that I read to my daughters, but lots of them I simply bought for the illustrations. I knew I could put them to good use.

wedding place cardsI used a piece of card stock or book page for the background (4″ x3″) Then I cut out faces from vintage children’s books (the ones that I didn’t want to keep for reading purposes.) I folded the cardstock in half, and glued the faces on the cardstock. I then chose a font that I liked (there are gazillions of cool, free fonts at typed the names of people I know in Microsoft Word, then printed the names out on white card stock. I then glued the names beside the faces on the cardstock. Easy Peezy!
