We found the coolest site to make unique custom made diy (do it yourself) place cards for your next party or event. Our friends at Something Turquoise give step-by-step instructions on how you can make a place card yourself.
These cards have a scratch off that reveals the table number where your guests will be seated.
How cool is that?
They even provide all the instructions necessary to make these adorable place cards. Their directions say to use the template they provide. You set up the name of the guest(s) near the top of the card paper and a one inch circle in the middle of the card.
Once printed, you will apply a scratch off circle on the printed one inch circle. These scratch off circles can be obtained at your local office supply store or on Amazon.
You print – “Scratch off” so you can find your table number – at the bottom of the card so your guests can determine where they are to sit.
After you print the set up sheet, cut out the separate place cards and punch a hole at the top of the card. Tie a string through the hole and attach a small washer (get at a hardware, home improvement or general store with a hardware department). The small washer is used by your guests to “scratch off” the circle so they can again find their table number.
This simple, unique place card is so versatile that it can be used for children and adults alike. It would be ideal for Bar Mitzvahs, Bat Mitzvahs, weddings, anniversaries, birthday parties, sports and corporate events, or any party where you will have assigned seating.
