Lova's World: Animal Placecards


Lova Blåvarg is one of our favorite people! At 17 years old Swedish-born Lova has an undeniable talent that you're just going to fall in love with! We will be showcasing Lova's beautiful craft and art projects regularly in this feature, LOVA'S WORLD.

From Lova: "These place cards are so easy to make and perfect for birthday parties! I used watercolor paper, because it's thick and has a nice texture."

Creative placecards will delight your dinner guests!

You will need:

Cardstock or Watercolor Paper



Masking tape

Printouts of animal ears and antlers in appropriate scale from the internet

Craft knife - I use X-Acto

1.Find some good images of bunny ears or antlers on the internet and print them out so that they are appropriate size for your placecards. The cards are 4 inches wide and the ears or antlers can't be taller than 1.75 inches.. 2.Cut out 4 x 4 inch squares from your heavy paper. 3.Mark the middle of your square of paper with a pencil and your ruler. 4.Position your printouts on your fold line and tape them down lightly. 5.Using your craft knife, carefully cut your ears/antlers out of the top of your placecard, making sure you stop at the fold. 6.Write your guest's name on the bottom of your placecard. I used letter stamps and an inkpad to do mine. 7.Fold the placecards in half and put your ears/antlers up for your guests to enjoy! 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. 24. 25.
