Love puts me in stitches...

I am in a DIY kick today and I saw this adorable idea on Wedding Chicks and just had to share! I think these sweet place cards (while most likely a tad time consuming) are the cats meow! Anyone want to have a craft day together? Anyone?

1. print out from  computer on white card stock.
2. Glue dots
3. Awl
4. Scallop circle punch 1.5″
5. Embroidery floss and needle
6. Corner rounder punch

Print your guest’s name from your computer in a cursive font on to card stock.Start poking holes with an awl, following the curves of the name Take a long piece of embroidery thread and start embroidering the name. (The best way to do this is to go up through the first hole, down through the second, up through the third hole, down through the second, up through the fourth hole, down through the third … etc.)
Create a top folded place card from matching card stock and then adhere some patterned paper to that card.
Adhere your embroidered name piece with foam adhesive to the place card. Take a small bud and adhere it with glue to the end of your embroidery.
