Starting to think about Spring! These napkin rings would be pretty for weddings, parties, or picnics. I used gorgeously thick double-sided crepe paper from Castle In The Air, but I also like the idea of using old book pages with regular crepe paper, or tissue.
Get the artwork in the "artwork downloads" column to the right. Print it out on 4" x 6" photo paper and make sure the print size is 100%. You might need to save the file and print using a photo application.
And please, if you use my artwork, send me a picture of what you made, so I can pin it to my pinterest board.
FIG. 1 Supplies: Six strips of card stock 1" x 6"long,six strips of crepe paper 2" x 8" long, six strips of crepe paper in 1 1/2" x 8" long, printout, 1/2" masking tape or washi tape, ruler, scissors, glue stick, and tacky glue.
FIG. 2 Cut around the artwork.
Fig. 3 Apply gluestick liberally to a piece of cardstock. Scrunch the wide crepe paper as you stick it down.
FIG. 4 Apply glue down the center and repeat with the narrow crepe paper. Stretch out the edges of the crepe paper to make ruffles
FIG. 5 Stick a piece of masking tape down the center, leaving 3/4" extending off one end.
FIG. 6 Close up the ring overlapping by 1/2 inch. Tape it down on the outside as well as the inside. If you used masking tape, you will probably have to use tacky glue to stick the photo paper to the tape. In the photo below it looks a little like the photo paper was stitched on. That's just part of the artwork, but wouldn't it be fun to stich all the layers together?
