{paper boat place cards}

Make your own place cards with these cute paper boats!

What you'll need:

  • wrapping paper or regular paper in letter size or A4 (if you use paper that is colored pretty on one side only, you'll need to double the size of the paper and fold it in half first)
  • twine
  • wooden skewers
  • scissors
  • pen

    They are so lovelies, aren't they?
    I did them last year, to my son's party… but like centerpieces…
    I wrote his name in the flag…
