We’re getting married at a winery and figured it went well with our rustic theme! it was relatively easy to do! I watched a youtube video and was ready to try it out. Also, the names on the cards will likely be in the calligraphy print!
Let me know if you have any tips, or suggestions!

@Jas00: How can you not do the cork when having your wedding at a venue like that. The only tip I have is to lay the corks flat on the surface and place the bottom of the place card in the cork. It’ll look great with the calligraphy font.

Never seen them this way but I think I like it better like this. If you have tons of corks, you could have one on each end of the card. Very nice.

@CatyLady: I’ve only seen them done under the cards rather than on the side, too, but I don’t see how they would stand up that way since they are round!!
I love the way you did them, OP, they look great!

I’ve also only seen them done laid flat, but yours is very creative and I like the way it looks more than the flat ones. Very cute!

We did the same thing! DH cut the corks so they were flat on the bottom and then cut the slit in them. I had trouble doing it, but he had them all done in 15 minutes. We used scrolly print for the names. They were a big hit at the wedding, everyone loved them!

@CatyLady: you’re right! I think its a must too! I tried making the cork name tag the other way and for whatever reason FH and I think it just looks better the other way! Thank you for the suggestion though!
@pinkksnow: Thank you! Because we are getting married at a winery, the corks are free to us – which is lovely because we will need a good number of these to make each individual name tag. The upside to doing them the other way (the way CatyLady mentioned) is that you only need half as many corks to make them, since you just split them down the middle.
@blastkiss: I appreciate the warm feedback! Thank you!
@MeeShell: I love the way you tied in the autumn-y theme into the place card! Those are really nice.
@KatM2014: Great, thank you!
@PeachSnapple: It can be a little cumbersome to get the slit in the right spot and safely, but with proper time and help they will be done in no time! I;m glad your guests were able to enjoy them!
