I loved my escort cards! I used small twigs taken from a pruning of a pear tree my uncle did over the winter. My escort cards were ‘tag’ style with a ribbon bow, and I cut a slit in 4 inch twigs.

I displayed them on a piece of foam that I covered with moss.I don’t have my professional pictures yet, so this is all I can show you, but I hope it helps!

(please cite me if you share the photo. thanks!)

I am doing a ribbon board (actually saw it profiled on Weddingbee)  I’ve attached a pic.  It was a great idea for me because my dad works in the garment industry and sells ribbon so it was easy for me to get what I needed.

@nypabride love the ribbon board! Are you doing it in pink or using another color?

My wedding colors are pink and green and my flowers are Gerber Daisies so I used different shades/patterns of pink and green ribbon.  The best suggestion I can make if you try to do this yourself is to try to use a board that is colored (I found pink foam board) that way if your ribbon isnt perfect, there is color behind it.

lisalulu – it’s really not that hard.  get foam board from any craft store. (you will need 2 pieces for each board – 1 for front and 1 for back).  measure ribbon out to size of board make sure you are able to pull it tight enough to cover the board but still have room to glue it on the back.  line ribbon up in the order you want it.  I found if you lay it out on one board and then glue on the other its easier.  use hot glue gun to glue ribbon on board.  when all the ribbon is glue on the board, use the 2nd board to glue on the back to help hold the ribbon down and hide the mess on the back.  

the project is def easier if you have a friend to help.  my mom was my helper and she used to sell crafts for a living so she was a little bit of a perfectionist, but honestly, it really wasn’t that hard.

Our wedding is in Dec and so we are haning our escort cards on a mini christmas tree.  Our place card are actually going to be snowflake shaped and they will be hung on the water goblets like they are in mid fall. 

  I got the idea from this picture I saw where they used butterflies.
