Stamp a star from the Tags set and simply add the name of your guest to the centre! I inked up my star stamp in rhubarb Memento ink and then went round the edges with a Memento green, the name of which escapes me, if you must have it, pop a comment!!
For my example I have used part of a stamp from my next release (hopefully early December) to make my place card for 'Dad', if I put my husbands name on it, my kids are likely to ask who Des is? they're still small enough to know him only as Dad!! lol.
I think when I make these for real, I will just hand write the names on, or you could computer generate them and punch them out using a 1.5 inch circle punch - they'll fit perfectly in the centre circle of the star!
I stamped a Merry Christmas sentiment and decorative motif (also from the Seasons of Love - Tags set ) above the 'Dad' to finish the front. I stamped them with the second impression of the ink which leaves a lovely pale impression of the ink colour.
Stamp two more stars and add a snowflake or other stamp to the centre circles and cut all three stars out using the co-ordinating Spellbinders Die - from the nestability stars set.
Score the two other stars right down the centre, leave the star containing the name alone.
Fold the scored stars over and stick them together on one half only - the two remaining 'free' halves get stuck to the back of the name star - in this way you provide a back post to help the place card stand up. I chose to fold up a tiny piece of each of the back 'legs' up so that the star could lean back slightly - you'll see what I mean if you scroll down to the last photo.
A little ribbon and a button and you're done, very quick, very easy and I thought they were quite pretty and would look good all around the table with their wee tufts of ribbons sticking up! LOL!
