Tea Party Napkin Rings


I started working on the napkin rings to go with the Tea Packet holders I  made last week. I have everything cut out and embossed and placed in a baggie to take with me down to Little Falls this weekend. I like to have something productive to do while visiting. I really don't sit still very well :) And I tend to stay up really late since I am used to working until midnight and all of our family work early in the morning, which leaves me with some idle time on my hands.... we can't have that now can we! My hubby is going to go to a hockey game with his brother at St. Cloud State on Friday evening, but that isn't why we are going to visit. He is going to get the front end on his truck fixed.We don't have a garage and DH's brother's father-in-law is a mechanic and will let them use his lift :) Ok, maybe you would like to see the project, huh!

I fastened the back with a Jumbo eyelet again. They work perfectly! A tip for success: Punch your holes before overlapping the edges because the Crop-A-Dile hole punch doesn't reach in far enough, even though it will reach to set the eyelet. Go figure!
  • Stamps: Morning Cup
  • Paper: Pear Pizzazz, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Watercolor 
  • Ink: Early Espresso, Palette Burnt Sienna (retired Non-SU hybrid ink), Pear Pizzazz, Cherry Cobbler
  • Other: Big Shot with Table Setting die and Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, Aqua-painter, Designer Label punch, Curly Label punch, Signo white gel pen, Pearls Basic Jewels, Antique Brass Jumbo Eyelets , Crop-A-Dile, Stampin' Dimensionals, bone folder (to help curl the paper)

I will use some of the tea cup and some of the coffee mug images for a little variety on these. I am making 14 for Zohra. She is a doctor I work with and such a sweetheart! She grew up in Afghanistan and moved to the US about 20 years ago. She and her husband are both doctors and I have worked with them both. She and I both love tea, and she loves to make projects I plan. She started asking what we were going to make to decorate for Christmas THIS year already back in August, lol! the last 2 years I have had everyone help make different ornaments to decorate the ER. I haven't decided what to do this year yet...
Anyway! She asked me to make some special place setting things for her to use for special tea parties at her home.

Here are the two projects together. She loved the tea packet box, and I think she will like the napkin holders too :) I know I do! And I will be finishing them this weekend...
