How to Make a Tent Card

Tent cards make a dinner special when used as place cards. Place tent cards on tables without tacking them up. Since they stand on their own, they can easily be used anywhere. A decorated tent card makes a good keepsake to help guests commemorate a special occasion. Use large tent cards as instructional placards to guide guests or display a menu or other information. Make your own tent cards with quality white card stock and some calligraphy pens.
