Row Your Boat | Place Cards

Every year at work we have a Summer Lunch and I always volunteer to organise it for two reasons:
1. I get to pick the restaurant
2. I get to do the decorations!

This year it’s all gone Nautical, we’re going to one of my favourite spots on Poole Quay, Banana Wharf, so what better than Paper Boat place cards as we gaze out at the Yachts!It took me a few tutorials before I understood how to make them, so I’ve tried to make it as simple as possible, but if you get confused, just ingnore-iga-me and head over to Youtube!

For one boat you will need:
A sheet of 9.5×7.5inches Paper
1xCocktail Stick
1x mini flag – (I will try and upload a template in the mean time, google has tons of links!)

Step 1.Cut your Paper to size

Step 2. Fold your paper in half length ways

Step 3. Fold the sealed edges so they meet in the middle, creating a triangle

Step 4. Fold the remaining paper up over the triangle

Step 5. Fold the corners inline with the triangle

Step 6. Flip it over and repeat

Step 7. Here comes the slightly tricky bit – grab the sides of the triangle and pull

Step 8. It should look something like this…

Step 9. Smooth down the sides so it lies flat

Step 10. Fold up the open edge

Step 11. Flip it over and repeat – you should end up with a triangle like this

Step 12. Grab the two sides again and pull

Step 13. Last tricky bit I promise – pull the triangles and voila!
