Card stock in color of your choice
Glue stick

Go to google maps. Enter the desired address in the "search maps" box. Zoom in or out according to how you want your map to look. To copy the map hold down keys Ctrl, Alt, Print Screen" all at once. Paste into a photo editing program such as Photoshop.

Crop to desired size. Add a white rectangle on top for the name. Copy entire image and fit as many place cards as you can on your 8 1/2" x 11" page. Print on white card stock. Cut out.

Glue down Google map on a second piece of card stock (refer to picture). Fold in half.
