After digging in the archives, I decided to share this DIY we created last year. It’s a simple idea for creating custom menus or dining party invitations. We have a couple “Let’s Dine Together Stamps” on sale in the shop (and you can still order today to arrive in time for Christmas!).
These cold months are perfect for hosting a small dinner party with friends and family. Creating a warm, inviting environment is only a few steps away. We recommend creating a greenery centerpiece with sprigs of pine to compliment the menus, and of course candlelight. This tutorial could also be supplemented as dinner party invitations.
- Washi Tape
- Chipboard or Kraft stock

- Let’s Dine Together Stamp
#1 Type out your menu in any text editing software, formatting the document to be 3×5″.
#2 Print out and cut menus and printable cover design
#3 Cut chipboard to be 4×6
#4 Embellish the menu with any of our stamps & let dry for 15 minutes
#5 Layer the menu and cover onto the chipboard allowing a millimeter of the menu to be higher than the cover. You could also glue the menu directly to the chipboard.
#6 Place a piece of washi tape along the top
#7 Style your place settings with your DIY menus and get your hostess/host on.
