 Welcome to the new Paper Orchid website. We have introduced several new designs and modified some existing ones. We have also added two new paper colors to our color palette, Antique Gold Shimmer and Antique Silver Shimmer. In order to make room for the new products we had to remove some of the older items. If you would like a design that you do not see on the site, please contact customer service.
All of the products on the site are available to be personalized, however that particular function of the website is currently not available. Please contact customer service to have your product personalized.

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!
