Place Cards
1. Scan our template into the ScanNCut machine and unify all of the elements so that the tree can be enlarged or reduced. Cut out the tree at your desired size from coloured and mirri card. Carefully peel away the tree from the cutting mat and discard the cut-out shapes.

2. Use a ruler and ball-ended tool to score the tree from the two bottom angles up to the point. Fold along the score lines and crease well so the tree can stand up.

3. From the machine’s library, select a five-pointed star shape, add a smaller star inside this and a small circle to the top of the large star to create a tag. Unify the elements before resizing, then cut out the tags from coloured card. Thread embroidery thread through the holes.

4. Using the Brother Canvas Workspace software, type out the names of your guests separately and select a clear, bold typeface from the font list. Save each name as a ‘Draw’ file before exporting to your cutting machine and resizing as necessary.

5. Arrange each name onto the layout mat and add a rectangle around each one. Place a fineliner in the pen holder attachment and set the machine to draw, before changing back to the blade holder and cutting the shapes from white card. Fix a name label onto a star tag with 3D foam pads and hang from the tip of a tree.

“You don’t need to use glue to assemble the trees. As long as you score them well enough, they should be able to stand up on their own”
Corinne Bradd, designer
