Our photo shows you at a glance all the materials you need to make this table decoration. You may need a second roll of packing paper, depending on the size of the table. Download the “cutlery” template on our website. Print it out and cut out all the shapes. It looks better if you make the individual pieces of cutlery life-sized, so you may need to enlarge the template.
Start by drawing the plates on the paper. Using the black edding 1255 calligraphy pen, draw a smaller circle surrounded by a larger one. Full-sized plates make a useful template for this.
Continue in the same way with the pieces of cutlery. Before you write the menu, we recommend you practise with the calligraphy pen first. To achieve beautifully expressive calligraphy, always hold the pen at the same angle and don’t let it rotate.
