Tutorial: Elegant & Easy Placecards for Wedding and Holiday!

Because nothing screams “Elegant!” like Lindsay the Frugal Crafter…am I right? Here is an easy 2 minute place card I made with the new Mini Silhouettes and Monograms stamp set from Pink Persimmon.

 

You don’t need calligraphy experience just a 2.00mm felt tip calligraphy pen (I used one by Marvy Uchida) and a 4″x4″ peice of cardstock. If you have a scoring board that is handy but if not you can score it with a ruler and bone folder (or the smooth edge of a butter knife), Also you will need an old-fashioned circle cutter like Colluzle or Creative Memories (or trace around a quarter and use a craft knife. Well, enough jibber-jabber! Watch the video to see how it’s done.

Easy peasy right? You can mix up the cardstock, ink and pen colors to be as bold or elegant as you like! And you too can be a “classy broad” just like me! :D Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
