Create order (and beauty) at your table with step-by-step instructions from Paper Source.

1. Assemble prescored paper bag place cards, copper washi tape, and a pair of scissors. Affix washi tape in two vertical strips along left side of card. Trim tape on each side to fit. 

2. Using paper in three fall colors, use a five-leaf branch punch to cut out three leaves for each guest. 

3. With a bone folder, gently curl the ends of each leaf up to add dimension to the embellishments.

4. Glue leaves onto the lower half of the place card, under the score line, starting with the top leaf first. Overlap each leaf, using alternate angles.

5. Using a white gel pen, write each guest name centered on the bottom half of the place card. Cards can be placed on a folded napkin on each dinner plate, or on the table just above the plate.
