Name cards:
You can do the same for the name cards. Either print out the names in a beautiful handlettering style using the computer and transfer them as in steps 2 to 4, or you can write the cards freehand. It looks nice when the name cards lie gently on the flatware. To do this, cut fabric into the desired size and tear them a little – this creates a beautifully fringed edge. Fold over the fabric and punch it with the name tag using a hole punch.

Attach the name cards
Now use the brass fasteners to attach the fabric and paper cards – and your creative name tags are ready!
