Free Printable Spool Place Cards

Good morning, Dotettes! I have one final pretty DIY for you from this sweet homespun shoot, some printable handwritten-style place cards.

Simply download the file, enter your guests’ names, print onto coloured paper and trim to size.

I’ve attached them to a wooden craft spool (available from craft shops) using double-sided tape. But you can wrap these versatile place cards around wine glass stems, attach to your favours, use them as escort cards or change the message to make food/drink flags.

Ms Gingham says: Simple and easy but I love the idea of these wrapped around wineglasses for place cards too.
