Introduction

Help guests find their seats with whimsical tented cards featuring photos of the bride and groom. They're great for an informal wedding, rehearsal dinner, or shower.

materials

  • 4 1/8-by-6 1/8-inch paper

  • 11-by17-inch card stock 

  • Glue

  • Double-sided tape

steps

  1. Take photographs of the two of you holding signs with table numbers; you can use different poses for each number. Have them made into 4-by-6-inch matte prints (we used black-and-white film so the photos wouldn't clash with the flowers or table setting).

  2. Glue each photo onto 4 1/8-by-6 1/8-inch paper. To make the "tent," start with a piece of 11-by-17-inch card stock and cut a strip that is 17 by 4 3/8 inches (each piece of card stock can make two); fold strip in half widthwise.

  3. Score, and make a fold 2 1/8 inches from each end to form flaps for base. Glue photograph to one panel of the tent. Overlap base flaps by about 1 inch; use double-sided tape to secure.
