Here are our table numbers… I got the inspiration from somewhere online, but sadly I can’t remember where – just saved the picture in my wedding file haha. So thank you to whoever came up with the signs that were somewhat similar to these 🙂 haha
Here’s the back… getting them to stand up was kind of difficult at first, but I FINALLY figured it out!
(sorry I can’t figure out how to flip it!)

These are great! I’d love the steps on how you did these especially on how to get them to stand up. Any information would help!

I’ll do my best!! (I’m not always the best at explaining myself haha)
I printed “Table number” off of Microsoft Word onto white paper and cut it out. I cut out a black square 1/2″ taller than the white paper and glued the white onto the black. I then cut out the damask paper 1″ taller than the black paper and glued it on. The red is 1″ taller and wider than the damask, and the black background was 1/2″ taller and wider than the red.
To make them stand up, I actually used the scraps from cutting out the black background – I think they were about 6″ tall (which is just slightly shorter than the height of the table number card). I folded the scraps (which I’ll refer to as the “stand”) about 1.5″ from the end. That was the square I glued onto the back of the table number card – I glued it about 2″ down from the top of the card in the center. I also folded about 1/2″ from the other end of the strip to help it stand.
I then cut very small strips maybe 1/2″ wide x 1.5″ long to use to keep the stand from just flopping out – kind of like the ribbon that goes between a picture frame and its stand. I folded the ends about 1/4-1/2″ from the ends and glued one side to the card and one side to the stand. I found that gluing it about 2″ down from where the stand is glued onto the card was the best spot. I glued the other side basically straight across from it. I had to move some of them around, but I just kind of figured it out as I went.
I know that’s not all that helpful… but if you have any specific questions, maybe I can help better that way?

OMG!! Thank you sooo much! I’m definitely going to try this when I make my table numbers 🙂
