Acorn Napkin Ring

Napkin rings! To go with the place card I posted here. I had to go through some trial and error on this project. But that's kind of the way it goes :) It's a good thing I still have several Jumbo Eyelets left! They are perfect for this project.

Here are the two I have made so far side by side. The one on the left is the first one I made. I folded some Cajun Craze paper in half to cut out the smaller layer the second time so there was no gap and I embossed both layers on the second one hoping to have a more flexible napkin ring, but I like the Soft Suede layer better not embossed. So the next one I make will have no gap and the Soft Suede base will not be embossed, lol! I also learned that you need to let the Shimmer Paint dry before trying to use a gel pen on the paper :)  The punches are each mounted on the ring with dimensional so they conform nicely to the curved surface.
  • Stamps: Day of Gratitude
  • Paper: Soft Suede, Cajun Craze, Naturals Ivory
  • Ink: Soft Suede, Cajun Craze
  • Other: Big Shot with Table Settings die, Lots of Tags Sizzlet die, and Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder; Designer Label punch, Large Oval punch, Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint, Sponge, Antique Brass Jumbo Eyelets, Crop-A-Dile, Signo white gel pen, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Stampin' Dimensionals
Here they are all together. I hope they live up to the anticipation!
