Wooden Seating Cards
Show your ingrained sense of style with seating cards crafted from paper-thin wood veneer. These inexpensive sheets are pliable enough to fold and cut easily into delicate shapes; the elegant graining makes a distinctive canvas for calligraphy. We used craft punches to create maple and birch leaves.
One 8 1/2-by-11-inch sheet of two-ply foldable wood veneer in short grain (running side to side) will make 4 tented cards. We used bird's-eye maple for cards and red cedar for leaves.

Write names on cards, table numbers on leaves.
