DIY – Paint Chip Napkin Holder Place Card

I love a woman who has many talents and Veronica Sheaffer is just one of those women. Not only does she have an amazing bridal collection which you can read all about in our interview from last week but she is also the curator of fun DIY projects which she displays on her blog My Hands Made It. I am so pleased to share her wonderful DIY Paint Chip Napkin Holder Place Card project which would be perfect for a rustic country wedding! As I was thinking about this project I had a great rustic wedding idea, why not assign a different paint chip color for each table and coordinate the color with a smaller paint chip on your place card table…this would be so cute! Thanks Veronica for sharing.

– Computer
– Ink jet printer
– Paint chip
– Small utility knife
– Ruler
– Napkin

Using any basic computer program (Word, Powerpoint, etc), set up a page size of 5.063 x 6″ and type your guest’s name in the center, using a font you love. Print directly onto the paint chip, being sure to use an inkjet printer (laserjet will not work, unfortunately). Cut two slits into the paint chip, about 3/4″ from each edge and about 1/4″ from the top and bottom of your guest’s name. Slide a napkin through the slits.

So easy and so FAST. You could have, like, five million people coming to your party and make your place cards in an hour. Seriously. And everyone will be talking about your genius resourcefulness.

    Love this!! I’ve seen paint chips used for other projects, but never in the context of a wedding. So cute and creative!
