DIY Escort Cards

I completely forgot to take pics of all these wedding projects so now i am scrambling around trying to take pics of what is still at the house. we have to wait 9 weeks- yes, 9 weeks for our pro pics and i am hoping he has good shots of the DIY projects!
My mom and i went to paper source one sat morning. thank goodness she was there because i felt very overwhelmed and stressed about the projects i was taking on and didnt have a real idea for the escort cards. enter, amazing creative mom. we found escort cards (ok that is not DIY). they came in all sorts of colors so we grabbed purple, green and orange- color scheme! then found great hot pink labels and you can download the layout from their website for easy printing!! we had a cute border hole punch that we used along the bottom of every place card and used a corner punch to round the bottom corners. we used a 1/4 inch rectangle hole punch to make openings at the crease of the card for ribbon. all hole punch items were from michaels. the ribbon we used is also from michaels- sale $1 for three rolls! we tied a bow at the top and then stuck the label to the card. inside i used number stamps with black ink to indicate a table number. it was cheap, easy and looks so beautiful! i love using color so it was nice and bright on the escort table. hopefully my photographer has a pic of it all laid out!
