Do-It-Yourself Cork Escort Cards

DIY CORK ESCORT CARDS by charlotte miller

All the little details are what makes a wedding memorable but making every little touch perfect is a daunting task. Simplify your efforts with Do-It-Yourself projects that are actually quick and easy. Escort cards especially can be time consuming as the guest list often changes at the last minute. For my recent engagement party in San Francisco, I opted for an escort card that could be changed in a snap by having two separate cards for the name and the table numbers. Here are the instructions for making simple, easy, and quick cork escort cards.
