DIY- Make Your Own Designer-Look Napkins

IMG_1523Getting this designer-look on cocktail napkins is fun and easy and will be a hit at your parties or gatherings this holiday season.

I've shared this idea before but had never tried it with our new Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folders.  As you'll see in the video, you can get different looks depending on what embossing folder you choose.

Take a look at the video and see how easy it is!

You can also see the video here on my YouTube channel.  Did you know that there are over 750 paper crafting and tip videos on my channel?  Be sure to subscribe!

Here is a list of some of the embossing folders that I tried:

Product List

Lisa's Inklings:

  • As seen in the video, you can try embossing two napkins at a time.
  • Any of our Stampin' Up! embossing folders would work beautifully.
  • Gift idea:  Emboss a complete package of napkins, tuck into one of our cellophane bags and add a cute  hand stamped topper.

Hw-candle-basketOh my goodness....when I saw this adorable candle at Bath & Body Works, I knew just the packaging to make for a cute Halloween gift.  This particular style is called a berry basket.  It has open sides and is connected at each top corner with ribbon or twine.  It's tiny but just the right size for this little candle.

Let's take a look at today's video tutorial.

  • Cut designer paper to 2 1/4" wide x 1 3/4" tall.  You will need 4 pieces.
  • You'll  need enough of Basic Black cardstock to a 2" circle punch and approximately 3" x 11" to cut thin strips for filler.
  • You'll need enough Whisper White cardstock to punch a 1 3/4" circle.

Mini DIY Easter Basket with A Good Day

Mini-diy-easter-basket

This is the month we need to plan for Easter gift and treat packaging so here's a DIY mini basket idea for you.  It's a makeover from a past video tutorial that is just the right size for a few sweet treats or small gift. 

I thought I'd try a monochromatic look with some paper and embellishment from the big annual catalog along with A Good Day (wood, clear) stamp set from the Occasions Catalog.  This is such a sweet set and you can see some more projects made with it HERE.

Min-diy-easter-basket-2Let's take a look at the project video tutorial that inspired today's makeover.

Click here to see the video that inspired the Mini DIY Easter Basket on You Tube.

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Cut the designer paper to 6" x 8".
  • Score on the 8" side at 2" and 6".
  • Score on the 6" side at 2" and 4".
  • Cut two strips of designer paper: One strip- 1/2" x 10" for handle and one strip 1/2" x 12'.
  • The 12" strip should be adhered to the top edge of the basket.  Start at center front and wrap around the top edge, bending around corners.  It will not meet the other end once you get back around to the front, but your stamped image and punched pieces will cover that.
