The friendliest place for moms and moms-to-be!
Spruce up your Christmas dinner table with these super simple Christmas place cards. Here’s how you make them. Christmas place cards tutorial courtesy of Craftster.org.
Use your X-ACTO paper trimmer to easily cut an 8.5" x 11" sheet of cardstock or paper into quarters. (They will be 4.25" x 5.5")
The handy thing about this paper trimmer is the scored grid work surface. Use the grid to score your paper at 1.75", 3.5", and 5" from the end.
Crease the end with the short flap, and the one adjacent to it.
It should look like this.
Then, flip the paper over and draw your design on the uncreased square (there should still be the little score from before - you'll need that!). Make sure the folded sections are down, and try to leave about a half inch of space above your picture!
Outline your design with a black pen to help it pop.
Now, get your X-ACTO self-healing mat and Gripster Craft Knife and cut around the top of your design (above the score). Make sure you don't cut along the score, because then your placecard will fall apart!
When you've cut the whole "pop-up" length, carefully fold down along the score and away from the design.
Then, crease that last flap backwards.
Run the Elmer's Dot Runner along the small flap, and stick to the top flap to make a triangle.
If you don't have much room to store these, you can make them all up ahead of time, and don't glue them together until you need them. The Glue Dot Runner makes it super easy to stick them together easily and fast!
