DIY Table Name Tags

Having guests? Make cute table name flags from buttons and a toothpicks!

Supplies needed: Buttons, toothpicks, a glue stick, a pair of scissors, a wire cutter and names printed out on plain paper. I’ve used the text box feature in OpenOffice.org to get the dotted frame around the names.


1. Cut off the tip of the toothpick, this will make it stand inside one of the button holes. 2. Cut out a name tag from paper. Let there be some space on the left side of the name. 3. Add some glue on the back of the name tag and bend it around the top of the toothpick. 4. That’s it! Now do it again and again until you’ve named all your guests…
