Hi! We are resposting this for Thanksgiving because its a super cute placecard thats actually easy and you can get the pretty rosemary at the grocery store! YAY! We have another rosemary place card DIY for you today. These ones are Rosemary Sprig Place Cards. I am really excited about the little place card DIYs we have been doing. I just love incorporating natural elements like these into my table scape. These cards are slightly easier than the Rosemary Wreath Place Cards, and require less supplies. All you need are some sprigs of rosemary, printed (or hand written!) place cards, and a hole punch. So let’s get started!
The first thing to do is gather some sprigs of rosemary. For this project, the sprigs I used were approximately 5.5 to 6 inches. Once you do that, you will need to take the leaves off the ends. Leave about an inch or so on each end.
Let’s talk about the place cards. Each card I made is 3.5 by 6 inches. The holes are half an inch from the top, and a quarter of an inch from the side. This is important because you don’t want the holes to get too close to the side of the card because once you put the sprigs through the holes, your paper could rip. I also recommend using a card stock, for heft and prettiness. After you have determined hole placement, I recommend starting your name so the top of the name hits 1.5 inches from the top of the card. I liked this amount of space because it wasn’t too close where the name would be touching the rosemary.
Alright, so you have your cards printed or hand written (if you have write them, I am so envious! I have the worst hand writing ever!), and your holes punched, here comes the hard part. Put the sprigs through the holes. JK, that wasn’t hard at all, it was easy. That’s why I love this project. I folded my napkins to create a little pocket so I could stuff the card into it all cute like. The font I used is Hello I like you.
That’s it! You’re done! So easy! You could also do these with store bough tent cards if you prefer. I would punch the hole right near the crease.
