Few things are as versatile and classic in any wedding than those iconic Coke bottles. When ShareaCoke.com released their customizable online store, we were giddy to get our hands on a big box of bottles with our names on them. And what better favor, place card or escort card table can you have than one that combines pretty and practical? Our DIY resident Kathryn Godwin of Studio Cultivate created this table seating arrangement with copper tags (!!!), beautifully captured by Laura Sumrak.
To celebrate the new feature, ShareaCoke.com is offering a ginormous giveaway that makes us jealous of our readers – the giveaway package includes two round-trip flights on United Airlines to anywhere in the continental U.S., Caribbean, Mexico, Central America or Hawaii and a $500 Visa gift card, a total of a $1700 value. It’s a biggie, so take a look below at how to enter for a chance to win. We wish we could enter, so be sure to enter and tell your friends too! The giveaway has been extended till August 10, so you have extra time to enter again!
- Standard Printer Paper
- Cardstock 110lb.
- Copper Tag (can also use paper tags if preferred)
- Tacky Glue
- X-Acto Knife
- Babies Breath
1. Print table numbers in preferred font (we used Hardwood LP Std) at 150 font size, this will act as a template for cutting.
2. Stack printed paper over cardstock, you can tape the edges together to secure in place. Use an x-acto to cut around the letters.
3. Dab tacky glue to the backside of the number, smooth with a finger or paintbrush.
4. Gently press paper number to center of copper tag.
5. Cut a length of twine about 10″ long, this will provide enough extra to work with, and can be trimmed later.
6. Wrap jute around top of Coke bottle several times, thread tag onto jute and double knot. Before tightening knot fully, tuck a sprig of babies breath into the knot. Trim ends of jute to preferred length.
