Step 1

Cut sections of cards 5-by-5 inches. Fold the cards in half to make them into a "V" shape.

Step 2

Use the "Text" tool in your graphics software to type the word "Reserved." Set the font and size to your desired style, but ensure that the word "Reserved" will fit onto the front of the card. Print out a test page, then print out the number of copies that you need. To save space it is a good idea to make multiple "Reserved" signs on the same sheet.

Step 3

Cut out the "Reserved" signs from the sheets of paper. Use craft glue to attach them to the front of the folded pieces of cards, with the fold orientated at the top.
