You can get a die cut in a leaf pattern and I would pre print the names on card stock and then cut them into squares/ rectangles and punch away!

1) I think it works!

2) I think that will depend on if you can find the apples for a cost effective price πŸ™‚

3) no help here πŸ™

4) You could do them using a labels template and then cut them out freehand. That’s what I would do – that way you can make minor adjustments for different length names, etc. but still have them all relatively uniform in size, and totally uniform in style.

If you don’t find a punch though you should be able to just free cut those leaves, most of them look like it’s just a basic shape, like drawing an eye on a face πŸ™‚ You should be able to do it in word, just line them up on the page, you should be able to fit about a dozen names per page I would guess!

PP’s have the how-to and where-to’s covered, I just wanted to offer my opinion on the apples vs. pears.  I like the pears better, honestly.  Good idea, and good luck.  πŸ™‚

I think pears are just as good as apples, for sure.

Would you consider REAL green apples or pears?

As far as the leaf tags, I’d go to dafont and download a wingding font that had leaves and use that as a template in illustrator. Then I’d make a sheet of them and add the names, print out on green cardstock, then cut out. 

I agree with mnsoonerbride…I think real pears or apples would work great and be pretty cheap.


PS…I totally love your venue. I looked at it myself before I chose one. hehehe.

Good job, DayDreamWanderer! I would go with that site and buy the pins and leaves and everything if I were you.

If you want to save the money, I feel like I’ve seen a template for those leaves on Martha. She used real Lady Apples (tiny ones) and added the paper leaf. I plan on doing that! (And maybe dunking the bottom in a little caramel. Mmmm.)

i think the look is beautiful and i think pears or apples both are fall-ish

but honestly, i would do fresh apples instead of candles. (probably more affordable) i wouldnt even think of taking home the place card holder (so it would be wasted) and if there was a note or annoucement or something saying i could take it home, i would think it was lame. a lot of people do NOT burn candles, so they would either leave them, or throw them away, or they would collect dust at their house.

you can take the apples after, wash them and make applesauce, or cider from them.

oh and for your leaf question. i would print the names on cardstock (in whatever ink/font/paper you like) then get a leaf hole punch from a craft store and punch out the names. (you will need to know the size and shape of the leaf before desiging the paper to print.
