Today I’m going to show you how to make these awesome & easy diy layered menu cards I created for my summer dinner party tablescape. This is yet another version of my diy layered menu set, and most of the work is done using my Cricut Explore Air 2. I’m able to design, write, and cut all in one space.
Admittedly I don’t always incorporate menu cards or even place cards into my tablescapes, but you have to agree it certainly adds an extra layer of personalization and decor to the overall look. Check out the steps below to create your own, and if something isn’t clear just drop me a comment.
What you’ll need for these easy DIY layered menu cards:
- Cricut white card stock 12 x 12-inch sheet
- color of your choice card stock 12 x 12-inch sheet
- Cricut Very Berry fine point pen
- Cricut Black 0.4 tip pen
- small hole punch
- decorative brads
2. Once your’re in Design Space, add the template and add your menu text. Size your card template to 6-inches in length.
3. Write and cut your menu cards using the Very Berry fine point pen, and set aside.
4. Using the same Note Card template, create a base card 1/2 inch larger than the menu card. Add text using any of these 36 conversation starters. Write and cut using the Black 0.4 point pen.
5. Layer and center the menu card on top of the base conversation card and punch a small hole through the two pieces. Attache them together using a decorative brad.
Place your menu/conversation cards at each place setting for your dinner party guests to enjoy.
