You can make simple, yet stylish, table number stands easily and quickly out of paper. Thick cardstock paper holds up better, and you can find scrapbooking-type paper to match any table theme. Print numbers directly onto the paper, or paste them on after folding along with photos or decorations. You can hide a thin flower vase in the center of your paper table number, or it can stand alone. Adapt the size of your table number to fit your needs.
Things You'll Need
- Thick rectangular paper
- Marker or pen
- Printed out numbers and photos
- Double-sided tape or glue
Fold a thick piece of paper in half width-wise and make a crease.
Open the paper back up and fold each side inward toward the middle and crease. This fold is sometimes referred to as a gate or window fold.
Place the paper upright on one of its ends on the table so that the folded in sides overlap to make a triangular number stand.
Unfold your paper and paste or write the numbers where the top of the stand is. Alternatively you can pre-print the numbers onto your paper using your word processing ruler guidelines.
Decorate each panel of the card with cut out designs or photos.
Re-assemble the table stand and glue it or tape it together with double-sided tape on the pieces that overlap.
