Original place cards

DIY place cards made from Perspex

There are so many different ideas for place cards these days, and so many ways to make your own. We recently came across these round Perspex discs in supercool pastel colours and thought they would be ideal for making unique place cards. No sooner said than done! The extra fine-tipped edding chalk markers by Securit are great for writing on the acrylic discs in a range of beautiful colours, including four pastel shades. And what's really neat is that the ink can easily be wiped off with a damp cloth, which means you can start all over again with a new design as many times as you like. Perspex, like Plexiglass, is a brand name for acrylic glass.
