This last week I was asked if I could make princess themed food tent cards for a friends daughters party. I always love being asked to make things I don’t offer in my shop. Using Cricut Design Space and Cardstock Warehouse paper, you can decorate guest tables or the food table at your next party!
For this project, I first selected my paper by choosing colors that best matched my color scheme. I used Cardstock Warehouse Cardstock Papers Sweet Tooth, Gold Touch Sparkle, Pink Lemonade and Cotton Candy.
After choosing my paper I opened up my Cricut design space app and opened a new project. I then chose a square and a score line from the shapes options. Now that you have this on your canvas you can shape the square into the size place card you need. For my project, I measured my shape to measure 4” x 5.2”. Once you have done this take the line and put in the middle of your rectangle. This line will make your machine score your cards so you have an even and easier fold. Next, I changed the color of my card to better match the paper I will be using. I did this by selecting my image and changing the color under layers. Now it’s time to choose your label. Cricut offers a variety of labels so choose one that you like best. After choosing your label you will want to size by placing it on side of you square size it Birthday Bash for my text and used the number 3 and used a crown found under images. You can also change the colors of these two images to better match the paper you will use.
Once you have everything laid out the way you want it, select everything, group it and then duplicate it as many times as you need tent cards. Now it’s time to cut!
CONSTRUCTING YOUR TENT CARDS
Once all your pieces are cut out it’s time to glue them together. I love using Zig’s 2-way glue pen. It will make your projects last a long time. Once you have glue and dried your tent cards you can now fold them. Remember to fold them along the score line.
You are now finished! You can write the names of your guest on each card or use them to identity foods on the food table!
