Detailed instructions:

So, before you get started, prepare all the necessary parts and tools. Print also the required guest name or just a common name («the groom», «bride», «bridesmaid», «friend of the groom») on the printer, choosing the font you like and the size of the inscription.

All the tools to get started

Using a paper cutter, cut your cardboard to the correct size. Then place the cardboard with the inscription on the colored cardboard for scrapbooking and mark with a pencil the lines along which you will cut. Cut a colored piece of cardboard.

Using glue points, connect the two cartons together. Choose such colors that the color of the inscription is combined with the color of the cardboard background.

Next, take the second piece of colored cardboard for scrapbooking. In this case, we chose a golden color. But do not attach your cardboard with the inscription yet.

And now a little tricks! Take your tape and use a hole punch to puncture two holes at the end of the tape. However, even a strong hole punch will not be able to break through the tape. And this is only at hand for us.

Punch holes in the tape

Now insert special buttons into the holes that hide inaccurate holes in the tape.

When the buttons are inserted into the holes, you can trim the extra piece of tape. Attach the end of the tape to a larger piece of cardboard to imagine how it will look on the chair.

Turn your cardboard over and attach your tape to the place where it will be fixed. Using the buttons, draw two points with a pencil. Next, make holes with a thick needle.

Place two studs (pins) in the holes. Do not worry, later the heads of studs will be covered.

Now we have the removable end of the tape ready, thanks to which we can easily fix our plate on the chair. It's time to attach the other end of the tape to the cardboard. To do this, bend the tip of the tape and secure it with a stapler.
