Folding Leaf Place CardsPosted on Sep 20, 2023 11:00:00 AM by Samantha Taylor
I love using leaf shapes for fall and Thanksgiving décor. These folded leaf place cards serve the purpose of letting your dinner guests know where to sit and act as a table decoration. These are classy enough for a fancier dinner party, but easy enough to make that kids can help.
MADE BY: SAMANTHA TAYLOR | TIME: 15-20 MINUTES
LEVEL: BEGINNER | SIZE: 4” x 5 ½”
- Glue Dots® Permanent Glue Squares
- Patterned Paper (amounts will vary depending on how many place cards you need to make)
- White Card Stock
- Score Board
- Corner Punch (optional)
- Cut patterned paper to 9” x 5 ½".
- Score paper along the long edge at 4 ½” (directly in the middle of the paper).
- Turn the paper 90 degrees and score every ½” along the short edge (1/2”, 1”, 1 ½”, 2”, 2 ½”, 3”,
3 ½”, 4”, 4 ½”, 5”).
- Fold the paper in half the short way (along your score line from step 2).
- Have the folded edge on your left-hand side. Use a scissors and cut in a jagged line from the bottom right-hand corner to the top left-hand corner.
- Unfold and place the edge that was on the top side while cutting on the bottom side.
- Fold along the ½” score lines in an accordion fashion.
- Place Glue Dots® Permanent Glue Squares along the top folded edge. Bring the left and right sides together, using the Glue Squares to stick the sides together.
- Cut a piece of white card stock to 3” x ¾”. Use a corner edge punch on the corners if desired.
- Use Glue Dots® Permanent Glue Squares to adhere the white paper to the leaf. You can write your guests’ names on this strip of paper.
Notes: Chose paper that coordinates with your plates and napkins for a cohesive place setting. You can also use Mini Glue Dots® for this project.
