If you don’t have a napkin collection going you may want to start one after you see this tutorial. For such a simple technique the results are beautiful and the possibilities are endless.

These are the only supply’s you will need to complete this technique. Go ahead and plug your iron in and set to a medium heat-no steam.

You will need to grab a napkin of your choice and separate all the plys until you get to the very first layer with the pattern on it. Place your card base on a few pieces of scratch paper and proceed to the next step.

Next, cut a piece of plastic wrap (any brand will work) a bit bigger than your card. Then, lay it as flat as you can over your card base. If you have small wrinkles, don’t worry, they will disappear.

Now, cut a piece of the napkin and place it on top of the plastic wrap.

Grabbing a few more pieces of scratch paper place those on top of your napkin. Here is what you should have beginning at the bottom…scratch paper+card base+plastic wrap+napkin+scratch paper.

Now, take your iron and go over top of the scratch paper with some pressure, make sure to hit the corners good. After about 20 seconds or so check it. It does not take that long. However, if you end up with some corners that didn’t attach well, put it back and go over it again. Lastly, just take your scissors and trim off the access.

Embellish how you please. I just quickly threw some twine on mine as an example. But, I can assure you, I will do more to it later.

I hope you enjoyed this post and I would love to hear if you give this a go.
