How to Make Snowball Place-Card Holders

by T F

I used these for a Frozen themed birthday party on the buffet table, but they would also work well for a Winter dinner.


  • Styrofoam balls
  • Printed scrapbook paper, white cardstock
  • Punch (optional), scissors, adhesive, pen
  • Sharp knife
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    There are a variety of sizes to choose from. Lucky for me, I had these on hand.

    Step 2

    Carefully, slice the styrofoam directly in half.

    Step 3

    Step 4

    I wanted my place cards matted. This is the background paper, cut 3 x 2 1/2.

    Step 5

    I punched out smaller pieces to print on.

    Step 6

    After printing names on white cardstock, use adhesive to attach to background paper.

    Step 7

    Carefully make a slice in the halved 'snowball'. Slice down about 1/2 way.

    Step 8

    Shimmy the place card down in the slice.

    Step 9

    Ready to add to the buffet table.

    Step 10

    *I had some leftover snowflake embellishments that I added for extra shine. Let the party begin!
