Have a slice!
Instructions can be found here. I did scale it down a bit, though. I’m using 2-1/2″ x 3″ inkjet business cards from Staples for the placecards themselves. I made the overall width 4-1/2″, scored 1/2″ in from each end for the front and end, and scored 1″ between each of the folds that hold the placecards themselves. Each holder started as a 4-1/2″ x 17″ flat pieces of paper. After scoring, folding, and tying ribbon through, they end up being 4-1/2″ x around 9-10″ long and allow for 8 placecards per holder. I cut the ribbon in 14″ long pieces as you need some extra to knot it a couple of times so it doesn’t slip through the holes.
I haven’t printed the placecards themselves yet as we’re still waiting to finalize which guest is at which table, but here’s a screenshot of what we’ve decided. Red for chicken, aqua for vegetarian.
