Patterned Seating Cards


A display like this is sure to capture your guests' attention. Use heavy-weight patterned papers in coordinating designs and colors. We combined flower and vine motifs, but you can use dots, stripes, or another pattern.


  • Heavy-weight patterned paper
  • Scissors or craft knife
  • Glue
  • Solid paper


  1. Step 1

    Look for papers at a good stationery or craft store, design them yourself on a computer, or work with a print shop to create them (these were made by letterpress).

  2. Step 2

    Cut into 2 1/2-by-3 3/4-inch rectangles, and glue on 3/4-by-2 1/2-inch solid paper strips for the names.
