DIY: PAPERCUT TABLE NUMBERS
It’s been a while since we’ve shared any DIY projects on these pretty pages, so I’m super excited to introduce you to new team member and our resident paper-expert Laura Reed, of Things by Laura. What this lady can’t do with a simple piece of paper honestly isn’t worth knowing – from the most beautiful paper flowers to geometric shapes, pinwheels and more.
When she’s not busy making gorgeous paper decor for her brides, you’ll find her creating ideas for Paperchase Craft Workshops as well as pretty paper DIY’s for us right here at B.LOVED! This time Laura’s sharing a simple but oh-so-effective project for creating these DIY paper cut table numbers. With a contemporary floral design these would work with so many wedding styles – just change your papers to coordinate with your colour palette!
YOU WILL NEED:
- Craft knife
- Cutting mat
- Metal rule
- Printed templates
Print the downloadable templates for the number of tables you are having.
With a craft knife, carefully follow all of the lines on the template. Don’t worry too much if you stray slightly as this is the backside and will be hidden in the finished table numbers.
Turn over the cut out design
Mount the cut out design on a contrasting coloured card. Be careful not to get glue on the leaves, as these will be folded out later on.
Trim the edges of the mount card so that there is an even border around the whole of the edge. Use a metal rule to be extra neat!
Fold up the leaves to give the 3D effect. You may need to use a needle to lift the edges at first. Repeat this for as many tables as you have, and display your handiwork proudly on your big day!
