1. Collect photos of your guests (social media is great for this) and cut out their heads using a photo-editing program like Photoshop.

2. Print out each face onto sheets of card stock and trim them so they’re rectangles. Fold the cards in the middle (a bone folder will give you a nice crease) to create a tented place card.
