Love them! I’m doing almost the same thing but using different color glitter behind to indicate their meal choice. You did a great job!!!!

I really like them! I wouldn’t put too much effort into them lining up perfectly, I am sure no one will notice if they are off just a few degrees! I think you’re right about increasing the font size a bit, you have enough space to work with. I also like the script font choice

Love them!

Although the white on top of the purple kind of takes away from the purple.

Have you tried printing them out on a cleae sticker?

I like them better without the white paper in top. It makes them look too busy. Have you thought about printing the names in white on the purple paper or writing with a white pen?

elw728:  I did DIY ours.  I had different coloured backgrounds for food choices (requirement of the caterer).  They were all a cream base, with a purple, silver, or green layer depending on your meal choice, and then another cream later with the names.

I used the computer to type all the names and printed them, I got really annoyed really quickly as I was making mistakes handwriting them and I’m super picky.

Glitter! Those are really pretty. I would enlarge the font and maybe print in purple ink.

I like the glitter! But I would probably have nixed the purple layer and printed on white cardstock with purple ink for the name

elw728:  I love them! Very pretty! But I definitely think you should print the names out. Not only does it look cleaner, but all three colors look amazing together!
