Today I finally found some time to take pictures of our wooden place cards, which we made a few weeks ago. If you are going to have a country wedding, you can definitely use this idea. You will need:
– a beautiful wood logs cut into thin coasters (birch tree would be very nice, I just love the bark of that tree)
– a tool for wood burning
– carbon paper (I would strongly recommend using the black instead of the blue, as the latter overflows while burning)
– a pencil
– a printed guest list (remember to choose a matching font)
Cut out all the names.
Cut a small piece of carbon paper.
Put a carbon paper on a coaster. Be sure that you use the right side (I did that mistake a few times).
Put a cut out name on top.
Take a pencil and rewrite the name following your print out version. (See the picture)
Take the papers off and burn the names on the wood, following the trace.
Enjoy your good work! 🙂
It can be really tiresome, if you are going to have a 100 or more guests. I’m having only a bit over 30, and it still was a big job to do. Nevertheless, it is really worth your time.
