D.I.Y Table Number

D.I.Y Table Number

Check out this D.I.Y Table Number Luminary made from our new Laser-cut Paper By The Sheet. With multiple different designs and just a few simple steps, you can create your own unique Table Number! .

Here are the supplies you will need:
  • Laser cut Sheet
  • Transparent or thin paper
  • Glue or Tape
  • Battery operated candle lights (2)
  • Scissors
  • Numbers or letters (found at your local craft store).
Follow the Steps Below!
 (Step 1)
        First things first, start off with a plain laser cut sheet (10x13)
      (Step 2)
Next, cut along the 13" length of the laser cut sheet to remove the excess  paper surrounding the actual laser panel. 
     (Step 3)
               After cutting, the laser cut piece should  be approximately 5" x 13".
(Step 4)
Using one piece of left over paper, cut a small rectangle (1 1/2 x 5)        

(Step 5)
After, fold the 5" x 13" laser cut piece in half, replicating a tent.
(Step 6)
Once the laser cut sheet is folded like so, fold the glue tabs on each end,
 facing the side.
 (Step 7)
 Now, it's time to glue/tape the insides of the  tabs to ensure that everything turns out  seamlessly!
(Step 8)
 This is what your Table Number should look like at this point. 
(Step 9)
Take the 1 1/2" x 5" rectangle we cut  earlier, and stick it to the tape on each side of the laser cut tent.
(Step 10)
 Bend each taped tab unto the 1-1/2"x 5" rectangle, and hold down.
Look how beautifully it's coming along!
(Step 11)
Cut the transparent stock to 4 1/2" x 11"
(Step 12)
Fold the sheet in half, making another tent
(Step 13)
We can see how transparent this sheet is by the candle light placed inside.
(Step 14)
Insert the solid paper tent inside the laser cut tent...were almost there! 
(Final Step)
 Insert battery.operated lights to add the perfect detail!
Once you've applied paper numbers to both side,
you're done! 
Enjoy the beautifully lit Table Number, perfect for any special occasion!

Paper Orchid launches NEW 2016 design collections

Paper Orchid launches NEW 2016 design collections

We did it! Our 2016 product line has been launched. All products are live on our website and sample packages to our wholesalers are in the mail. Yay! Now we are rushing to finish up our new 2016 full color catalog that will be ready in about 2-3 weeks.

We had an early introduction of our first collection, Chantilly Lace, which has had a phenomenal response. There are four more design collections this season: Roses, Willow, Tuscan, and Crocus Spirals. When we launch new collections we start with an invitation and one other coordinating product until we know what our customers are drawn to. Once a design is in demand we start adding more pieces like accessory/RSVP cards, place cards, favor boxes, etc. We want to embrace the one-stop shopping experience so please contact us if you would like a specific product added to a collection. 

 Be inspired, be creative, make your special event extraordinary, and let us help.

Below are some of the shots taken for our upcoming catalog ….

Chantilly Lace

Chantilly Lace

Welcome to Paper Orchid’s new blog.  I’m Kathrine and I can’t wait to share the most elegant wedding invitations in the market today.  But first a little background …. We are a Sonoma County based company who has specialized in laser cutting paper since the late 80’s.  In 2004 we decided to expand our business by launching our own wholesale laser cut product line.  We pulled a team together, which I was fortunate enough to be a part of; and we created a laser cut wedding invitation business that was launched at the 2005 New York Stationery Show.  Our line includes invitations with coordinating accessory cards, place cards, favor boxes, and note cards, and wedding cupcake wrappers.  We also have holiday cards and seasonal cupcake wrappers, all designed and manufactured here in Santa Rosa, California.

I love paper and I am very passionate about what we create here at Paper Orchid.  Lately we have been very busy getting ready for the 2016 product launch.  I am so excited!  I just have to share our first design collection from this upcoming line.  Chantilly Lace!  This delicate lace detail is transformed into paper via the magic of our laser cutting. 

We would be honored to have our laser cut invitations set the stage for your very special day.
