Easy to Make DIY Place Cards for Your Next Event

If you are looking for a way to make your next party feel a little Fancier or more Fun, you should consider using Place Cards. There are limitless options for using them at Parties!

They are an Easy Way to Label Foods or Beverages, Food Allergies, or Guest Seating at Celebrations. Use them for Baby Showers, Anniversary Parties, Birthday Parties, Holiday Parties, and more!

At Katie J Design & Events, we have in the past offered Place Cards as part of our line of themed Decorations and Supplies. Though we are discontinuing our themed place cards due to problems sourcing materials of a suitable quality, I wanted to make sure you all know how Easy it is to make DIY Place Cards and share my Tips and Secrets with you.

Here’s everything you need to know about how to Make Themed DIY Place Cards for your next Event!

How to Use DIY Place Cards

You might think Place Cards are just for formal occasions so guests know where to sit. However, there are almost endless options for how to use DIY Place Cards.

Food Tags

We’re always Creative with the Foods we Serve at our Celebrations. I love making Tasty Treats that match the Party Theme.

Using Food Tags is a great way to Share your Fun Foods with your guests!

Check out this photograph of Camping Foods with Food Tags from Donte's Camp Out themed Birthday Party. They turn Gummy Worms into “Bait” for such an Amusing Party! These Place Cards use Printed Text and Camp Stickers to share the fun theme.

Another example is this Shimmer & Shine Party with Place Cards to help the Guests enjoy the Themed Treats. You can see “Enchanted Chips” and “Rainbow Waterfall” Food Tags for the Delicious Food.

One more way to use Place Cards as Food Tags is for Beverage Stations. If you put drinks into Fancy Jars, these are a Creative Way to let the guests know what their drink options are!

Here is an example from a Mimosa Bar where Place Cards help Label each Yummy Juice to mix with Sparkling Brut.

Wedding Name Cards

During Weddings or other Formal Celebrations, it’s Tradtional (and many times easier) to assign Seats and Table Arrangements. With DIY Place Cards, you can share Guest Seating and keep with your Theme!

Directions for Making DIY Place Cards

It’s Easy to make DIY Place Cards. You only need some Card Stock, 3.5cm Round Stickers from Katie J Design & Events in your choice of theme, and some Craft Supplies like Coloured Pens.

Step 1

Make sure you have a Party Theme. It will be a lot easier to style your cards and find all of the best elements to add if you know the theme for your party.

Step 2

Pick matching sheets of A4 craft card sheets. Ideally, choose 200gsm or up for the best quality place cards. You could also get creative and choose other types of paper, like parchment paper, metallics, or pastels to achieve the effect you want.

Step 3

Carefully fold each of your A4 sheets in half, and then in half again. You will then have 4 equal parts of the paper. Optionally, you can also trace the creased lines with a pencil, but use a ruler so the line stays neat and straight.

(Tip: When you’re purchasing A4 sheets, each one will make 4 place cards. In this step, the folds help you evenly cut the A4 sheet into equal pieces for the 4 place cards.)

Step 4

Open back up the folded A4 sheet. Cut along the creases to make your 4 pieces of paper that you will use for 4 place cards.

Step 5

Take each small piece of A4. Fold it in half.

(Tip: If any of the folded pieces of A4 has trouble keeping a folded shape, you can press it under a paperweight or other heavy object such as a large book. Keep it there overnight.)

Step 6

Add one of our themed 3.5cm Round Stickers to one side of each place card. You’ll instantly have a themed decoration for each card!

Step 7

Use fancy pens to write a message on the place cards.

Remember, there are so many purposes for these cards, including Name Cards, Food Tags, Place Cards, Food Allergies, and Guest Seating.

(Tip: If you’ve finished your place cards but they still aren’t creasing properly, you can press them overnight.)

They really do make a Fun addition to your Celebration. Check out these Place Cards at Donte's Pokemon themed Birthday Party. What a Fun way to display for the Party Guests!
