Quilled Table Numbers from Martha Stewart

For an organic and pretty touch to your Autumn-inspired wedding, you can create these beautiful quilled table numbers from Martha Stewart… Turn table numbers into works of art with quilling paper. Print out numbers in desired font (a fancy shape lends itself well to quilling) and size (we used 650-point Linoscript for a 4-by-6-inch piece of card stock); you'll use this as a template to shape numbers.

For each digit, curl one end of a 1/4-inch-wide strip of quilling paper by wrapping it about five times around quilling tool or the shaft of a screwdriver.

Then, using template, form number: Starting with curled end, bend paper for curves and crease for angles. Trim paper, leaving a few extra inches, and curl end. Apply white craft glue to edge of number with toothpick, and attach to card, using tweezers; hold in place to secure. To create stand: Cut triangle out of card stock and glue edge to card's back.
