Fortune Place Card

Source: Martha Stewart Weddings, Fall 2003


Bring good fortune to the table with this clever place card.


  • Letter-sized card stock

  • Scissors or craft knife

  • Calligraphy pens

  • Double-sided tape


  1. Print messages or romantic quotations centered onto 8 1/2-by-11-inch card stock, oriented horizontally. Cut into 1/2-inch-wide strips. Turn strips over, and calligraph first and last names 1 inch from each end. Notch ends.

  2. To make the "cookie," cut patterned paper into a circle 5 1/2 inches in diameter (if you like, make a cardboard template using a compass). Roll circle into a loose tube. Overlap ends about 1/2 inch and secure with double-sided tape. Hold the tube so that the top flap is pointing down and facing away from you. Slip a fortune into the tube with the name toward you. Fold the tube inward and secure with double-sided tape.
