What You'll Need
Craft knife

Card stock

What to Do
1. Using the craft knife and ruler, cut card stock to 4-x-4-inch squares on mat and fold in half to form place cards.

2. Write guest's name with glue pen. Sprinkle glitter over the glue, then tap off excess. If any stray glitter remains on project, gently brush it away with a small-tipped paintbrush.

3. Use leaf stamps and glue pad to stamp a design onto the card around the guest's name. Sprinkle with glitter and tap off excess. Repeat as desired with different stamps and glitter colors.

4. Cut a piece of card stock in a contrasting color about 1/4 inch wider and taller than the first piece. Fold in half and adhere to contrasting square with double-sided tape.
