Happy Monday everyone and how are you all? With only 2 week till Christmas I...
Today’s DIY Tutorial comes from the very lovely Lauren from Flat Broke Bride. Lauren is the queen of DIY and has been a regular on the Blog for quite some time now. Today she is showing us a very simple DIY idea but one I have seen in quite a few weddings recently, it’s these cute Book Table numbers. Book themed weddings seem to very popular at the moment, so this idea is perfect if you are adding literary details to your day, as Lauren is.
My newest project is to create the table numbers for our tables. This one is really simple and easy to do! and goes perfectly with our theme.
Step 1) Start out by finding the middle of your book and breaking the binding a little so it sits flat. This whole project is sorta about destroying a book, and I’ll admit it does hurt a little. I’m using books I don’t like so I don’t feel as bad.
Step 2) Once your book is lying flat you can use your stencils to trace the letters on the book. Now I had a slight problem, the stencils I chose were a little too large. I had to free-hand the letters in “table.” Hopefully your stencils will be the right size!
Step 3) After tracing, take your knife and cut around the letters (and number), all but the bottom! This way, you can stand the letters up.
Step 4) Once they are cut out, bend them forward so they stand straight up. And that’s it! It’s a pretty quick and simple process. If you have a lot if tables, it will be time consuming, but manageable. What were your table numbers like?
