Miss Jet quickly responded, "Oh, hell no."
Thus was born the need for escort cards. I wanted to avoid the old tent-card-on-a-table standby and visited my trusty frenemy, Pinterest, for inspiration and fell in love with the hand-written shipping tags on a framed board:
I have to briefly interrupt this post to share something personal. I have a confession to make, hive. As crafty as some of you may believe me to be - I have a dirty, little secret.
So glad that's off my chest. I'm a calligrapher's NIGHTMARE, you guys. My handwriting is that of an old man. I write in all caps. I smudge absolutely everything I write. And there was NO WAY in hell I would ever trust myself to hand-write my escort tags - so big ups to MOH J AGAIN for coming through on this one.
Like I was saying, as I wait for the finished tags to roll in, I decided to pre-pin the board so that the finished tags can just be slipped on upon arrival. I wish I could be okay with the Pinterest-y, non-chalant, seemingly haphazard look shown above, but I am just way to anal for that shizz...
We did end up with more tags than room on the board, so I created two-smaller contrasting boards with different fabric to sit alongside the larger frame. It will definitely add some visual interest and depth to our escort table - so all's well that ends well!
And here are the finished boards!
How are you doing your escort cards? I'd love to see!
