The place cards are best printed on cardstock. However, if you do not have cardstock and do not want to buy any, there is a crafters trick to make it work. Simply print them out on normal paper. Then, using index cards, paper plates, or any type of thicker paper product you have on hand, cut out pieces the same size as the place cards. Adhere them together with a small amount of school or crafters glue. Place under a book or something else that is flat and heavy and allow to fully dry.
