DIY Heart Name Tags

Posted by Meghan Quinones

I am always looking for ideas that are a little different than the norm. When I saw the adorable Paper Accents Chip Shape Hearts, I knew I wanted to use them for some sort of crafty project. As I stared at the little brown heart, it came to me; Why not make the heart gold and use it as a name card?! I loved this idea as an alternative to the standard table tent wedding name card.

To get my chipboard heart to look like gold metal, I used Gold Ranger Basics Embossing Powder. I have to admit, this is the first I have ever used embossing powder. Wow, this stuff is AMAZING! I am now obsessed with it! Watch out, I see a lot of embossing projects in the near future. To finish my name tags, I used some adhesive vinyl and twine. Just think how cute your wedding table will look with these cute gold hearts on top!

Here's what you'll need:

- Paper Accents Chip Shape Hearts

- Embossing Ink

- Ranger Basics Embossing Powder

- Ranger Heat it Craft Tool

- Black Vinyl Adhesive

- Chalk Marker

- Hole Punch

- Twine

Let's get crafty!

Step 1: Rub embossing ink all over the front of your heart.

Step 2: Pour a generous amount of embossing powder over your heart, covering it completely.

Step 3: Turn your heart to the side to remove excess powder.

Step 4: Begin heating your embossing powder with your heat tool. Continue heating it until is has a nice smooth, shiny sheen to it.

Step 5: Punch a hole in the corner of your heart.

Step 6: Cut a piece of twine that is 6 inches long, tie the two ends together, and slide the loop through the hole in your heart.

Step 7: Time to add your guests' names! I took a piece of adhesive chalkboard vinyl and ran it through my Big Shot with a banner die. Then, I used a chalk marker to add my names. That's it!
