Recycle:Napkin Rings

So I got to work on some of my baby shower crafts yesterday (YAY!) and I finished these cute napkin rings. They did take a little long, BUT an extra pair of hands would have made it go a lot faster! I will definately post all of the projects and pictures after the shower, but I wanted to post some tutorials as I go, so here we are.

Paper Towel Rolls (Yay for recycling!)

Scrapbook paper

Twine (remember the $1 twine, it's back!)

Labels for your napkin rings

Cut your paper towel rolls (minus the paper towels) into pieces (about 10 or so per roll) and cover them with scrapbook paper using your trusty hot glue gun. Punch two holes near the top of the ring as shown that you will match up with holes in the label. I made my labels in microsoft word by inserting a circle shape and changing the outline to the thickest width and polkadots. Then I inserted a word box into the circle and used the font pupcat to type food words (Delish, Grub, Eat, Enjoy, Nibble, Bite, Chow, Yum, etc.). I just printed these, cut them out and punched two holes in the top to match up to the holes in your PT rolls. Now tie a nice little twine bow through both and you have a cute little shabby chic napkin ring to display at your next party.

Just make sure if you are doing like 30 of these to GET SOMEONE TO HELP!

Have a wonderful Tuesday!
