Items you need:

Card stock
Decorative ink stamps
Scoring board and scoring knife
Ruler
Scissors
Decorative punchers

Step One:

Select card stock in a color that goes well with your table décor. For an autumn-inspired table setting, you may want to choose pastel shades of orange, yellow, or red. A winter-themed dining table is best complemented by shades of off-white. Stick to paler shades as they highlight the decorative details of the card. Cut the card stock into 4×4 inch squares, or larger depending on your table arrangement. Score them down the middle to make folding easier later on.
