Stamped Egg Place Cards for Spring and Easter

Easter is just around the corner, and I love coming up with special table decorations for our holiday celebrations! Easter is such a fun holiday to decorate for because it is right in the beginning of Spring, when everything is fresh, new, and coming to life! 
I try to come up with ways to decorate tables that are unique and budget-friendly. I created these Stamped Egg Place Cards that would be perfect on the table at your Easter celebration! They are full of Spring cuteness cost just over a dollar to make!

Eggs and Easter go hand-in-hand, so I thought it would be fun to use them as the place cards for our Easter tablescape this year! But first I needed a base to set the eggs on. I considered purchasing little boxes from the dollar store, but I found this tutorial on how to fold a paper box and thought it would be cheaper. Plus, it would be super fun to do a little paper origami!

I started with a 12 x 12 piece of scrapbook paper in a Springy yellow checker pattern. I wanted my box to be a little smaller, so I trimmed my paper down to 9″ x 9″. Then I followed this easy tutorial to fold my paper box, using my handy Martha Stewart bone folder to make nice, neat creases. Even if you’re not a very crafty person, it really was easy to make! I ended up with these adorable little paper boxes. You could use them for so many things!

I also wanted a little nest to set inside my box to hold the egg, and I found this faux grass mat at Hobby Lobby that I thought would be perfect for my Easter table! It’s a really pretty green color and will add lots of texture to my tablescape! I picked it up on sale for just $3.00. Score!

The grass was attached to the mat in little sections, so it was easy to cut a small square of grass for my box. I just used scissors to break apart the plastic grid on bottom.

I trimmed a 3 x 3 section of grass that fit perfectly inside my box. How adorable is that already?

I could have used bright colored plastic Easter eggs, but I love the simplicity of a plain white egg sitting in the grass. (Hard-boiled first of course!) I used my small letter stamps and black StazOn ink to stamp my guests’ names on the eggs, and placed them in the grass-filled boxes.
