DIY | Scratcher Escort Cards

May 30, 2014

Everyone loves scratchers. They are fun and interactive. The feeling behind scratching them is like revealing some special little prize… full of anticipation – probably because we’ve associated it with lotto tickets. None the less, being made to scratch and reveal their table location is sure to give your guests a little thrill…

SUPPLIES:

  • 1″ silver ‘scratch off stickers’
  • your choice of 8.5″ x 11″ cardstock
  • 5/8″ silver washers
  • Crop-a-dile hole punch
  • twine
  • paper trimmer

Start by downloading our FREE + EDITABLE design above. Add each guests name and table information to each text area by double clicking (you’ll need Adobe to edit) and print onto your choice of 8.5″ x 11″ cardstock.

Using a paper trimmer and hole punch… cut + punch each escort card.

Apply the awesome scratcher sticker over each table number! The sticker part is actually clear, so when scratched it reveals whatever is underneath.

Most of you will design these cards yourself, so here’s a tip:

Just make sure that your table number font is around 1/2″ in length – so it will easily fit under the 1″ round sticker and so your guests won’t have to scratch off the entire surface of the sticker to find their table number.

You can easily set out a bowl full of pennies to scratch these darling cards with – or you can add an inexpensive washer to each card using twine… which I think is way cuter.

I’m sorry, but these are just too freaking adorable!!!

Your guests will definitely have a unique experience, revealing their table location!
