I hadn’t really thought about table numbers until a patient of mine who is Chinese-heritage (and a paper cutter, but I had no idea she did this) gave me ten BEAUTIFUL hand-cut numbers (one through ten in numerics, black, with curly extra designs and everything, approximately 6 x 6 each and unmounted) as a graduation/parting gift (I’m graduating residency this year – YES!!). I was completely honoured and love them, but have no idea how to use them or mount them.
Do I just stick them with a glue stick to paper? Then what? What size and style frame? They seem too big for placing with a stick in centerpieces, and are super-delicate….welcoming any and all ideas!!

Additionally, for those who are detail-oriented 🙂 –
1) Wedding theme is eastern/Moroccan
2) Colours are wine, coral (orange) and salmon (pink) with gold chairs/seating
3) Planning lots of Moroccan lanterns and faux-Persian rugs in a semi-covered outdoor pavillion for the reception
4) Food will be family style so take into consideration these cannot be easily tipped over! 🙂
Thanks in advance hive!

Definitely don’t glue them, just lay them on top of a contrasting color and put them in frames with glass to protect them. Can you post pics?

I agree not to glue them, what if they get ruined? I think a frame would hold them in place fine, but if you’re not confident about it I would take them to a craft store and ask them how they would frame them…

You could do them like Mrs. Hot Cocoa did her table numbers. They looked gorgeous and it wouldn’t ruin the work that your coworker did.

Thanks guys, just rechecking this thread!
@chapelhill: My numbers are similiar to what Ladygoodman has posted, just less intricate and in black!
@LadyGoodman: That’s a really nice idea, but I don’t think would mesh well with my theme 🙁 I may be stuck with displaying them behind glass though to make sure they don’t get smushed as you guys pointed out!
