There are some painfully cute crafty ideas for all you brides tackling your wedding with paper. Minhee has been so kind to do a tutorial on her super cute silhouette escort cards.

Instruction/how to:

1. Download and print template on plain white paper
2. Choose the size you need and cut it out and lightly tape on to the black construction paper.
3. Using your exacto and scissor, cut out the silouhette shape. You can cut about 3 sheets at a time.
4. Write names with the white ink pen and attach it to the glass using a double stick tape or mini glue dot.

If using mini tags:
5. write with the black pen, the table numbers on the mini tags
