Ever rushing to set the table before guests arrive? Yeah, me either. (wink) When it comes to setting the table with creative place markers that only take minutes to make I totally have you covered. I’m always looking for unique ways to welcome guests with a little personalization. I also have a thing for initials.
I’ve partnered with my friends at HP to share how to make DIY paper straw flags using the HP Instant Ink program. This crafty project is ridiculously easy so it’s a must try that will quickly become a go-to for all your place setting needs. Grab the simple crafty details below!
When I’m rushing to put a last minute table setting together, add extra touches to a styled display or making a custom gift for a friend the last thing I want to deal with is running out of ink. Isn’t running out of ink mid project the worse?! HP now offers an HP instant ink program so that you #NeverRunOut and printing will cost less. Ink is delivered directly to your door for a low monthly fee. My printer notifying HP of when I am low on ink and it showing up on my doorstep before I run out? Yes please!
To create these simple place setting drink straws you’ll need to carve just a few minutes of time prior to guests arrival. This is the perfect way to add a little last minute table setting pizzaz. Required items:
Fancy paper straws
Downloaded font of your choice
Using the downloaded font of your choice create a document with the initials of each party guest. Be sure to justify to the right. Print using the HP Envy Series printer and change the print settings to cardstock (one of my favorite things about this printer is that option). Cut the drink flags in long strips, apply glue to the back and adhere to a fancy paper straw. Trim length if desired. Set the table and enjoy entertaining your guests!
