No way!!! Thought I was being original when I thought of paper boats for place cards coz fiancé loves fishing and I love the sea! But alas, someone's already done it. I only just made my first one today even!! Lol. This has just confirmed my plan to make them :)
How to fold nautical paper boats by Jenny Doh. Once the boats are folded, paint bamboo skewers with white acylic paint and poke them into the boats from the bottom. Cut pieces of book pages to create flags and adhere to the tips of the bamboo skewers.
