Believe it or not this seemingly impossible thing is made out of only one piece of card, and requires no gluing.

It is actually quite hard to make a place card stand up if you just use a strip of card folded in half, as anyone who has ever been to a conference will testify.

Even the thinest paper will make a rigid sign.

Step 1: Start With a Square of Card

Mark out the square of card s above. I have drawn this in thick pen so that it shows up in the photo.
I have used thin card with fabric glued to both sides.

Step 2: Start With a Square of Card.

Cut in from the side along the three lines to the center line.

Step 3: Folding - This Is the Tricky Bit to Explain

It helps to score the center line but it is not essential.

Step 4: Now Decorate.
