There are SO many ways you could incorporate leaves into your escort cards.  I don’t actually have a template, but here are some pictures for inspiration.

honestly, I think you can create your own templete. This is what I did for my invitation inserts (which were all different sizes) and just created different size templetes. I plan to do the same for my escort cards 🙂

BTW here are a few picks I found when I was considering having a fall theme wedding, I LOVE this first one!

If you want to have those shapes, but don’t want to spend all day cutting them out, you could also look into using a cricut.  I just discovered the wonder of the cricut while working on wedding crafts!  Many scrapbook stores have one you can use for a small fee.  You could cut out a different shape for each table, or a variety of shapes and a different scrapbook paper for each table.  If you are in or near ft collins, there is a great store on shields and drake that has cricuts.

Type in leaf template in google and see what you get!

This one is cute..than use word and formated the sizes you want..type in the names to be centerized. (I really have no idea what is on a mac) Copy and pasted the leaves into paint/photoshop…..so you can make like six on a page or four, depending on how big..Than print the leaves out..and than run them thru again for the names from word… I use words/photoshop/paint for everything and it really isn’t that hard. just find a free template via google of the leaf you wanna make…buy some color cardstock..and away you go 😉

tip: print preview and print it on scrap paper before cardstock just in case it isn’t right…like font formatted or whatever. Trial and error…just me I’ve been there..not too puter savvy either..but I made seashells ones..so I believe you will be able to make leaves one 😀

candy apples with the names attached to the sticks-they can double as favors!

You should definitely use this project to emphasis your decor and your theme. Perhaps creating a branch type tree then place with ribbons the fall color leaves hanging from the branches or perhaps do them as centerpieces and each leaf can fall in front of each appropriate chair and the people’s name will be on it and it doubles as a centerpiece ( dont know how many guests/tables you have, so that’s obviously a determining factor on that idea)

Experiment with paper and fabric – perhaps cut out nice fabric leaves in faux dupioni in fall colors (browns, red, oranges, greens) and print out little name strips and sew them to each leaf – that can be an alternative to paper leaves.

Good Luck!
