I am throwing a Disney Villains Tea Party this month and I thought a great way to make everyone feel really welcome is to make them a custom name tag. Not everyone who was attending knew each other and I thought it would be cool if everyone could choose to “be” a villain they identify with by choosing a name tag with the Villian's photo on it.
I created about 18 name tags and laid them on a tray at the entrance of the party with a smaller tray of labels, pens, and foam tabs. Guest wrote their names on the tags and attached them to the name tags as shown on the example above.
I wanted the name tags to be decadent, like all Villains are, but they had to be affordable because I needed to make like 20 of them. Enter in crepe paper!! Crepe Paper is usually 50 cents to a dollar per roll and each roll can make about 15 to 20 rosettes. These crepe paper rosettes mimic fancy prize ribbons and they have a wonderfully delicate, decadent feel! for the bottom, I decided to go with lace, ribbon, and trims from my stash in traditional Disney Villains colors: purple, green, and black. If you look closely, you'll see that the greens are all various shades that don't match, as are the purples and blacks. The effect is a decadent yet eclectic mix, with no two name tags looking the same.
Gather these supplies to create these rosette name tags:
- Crepe Paper, at least one roll per color, made into rosettes
- Assorted ribbons, trims, and lace in coordinating colors
- Printable Disney Villains images. I found some online by doing a google search
- Photo paper to print the images on
- Paper punches – I used a 2″ Circle, 2.25″ Scalloped Circle, 2.5″ Scalloped Circle
- Pin backs
- Hot Glue
- Tags or Labels for the names
- Sequins, adhesive bling – optional
Here's how to create the name tags:
Aren't those fun? It will take a few hours to make 20 name tags but you can do this while watching your favorite TV shows so it won't take too long, right? Check out my post about the Disney Villains Tea Party recap!
