Napkin Craft


DH went to Tokyo recently and as always was on the lookout for something papercraft for me.  I have a good stash of origami papers and fabric from past trips so this time he got something a bit more unusual.  I am struggling to think of something fun to do with them:

Paper napkins!  I have never done anything with napkins, although there was that great YouTube video for ironing them to cardstock with cling-film to then use for cardmaking.

I am trying to come up with something interesting, but at the moment my head is way too filled with dollmaking bits. I did see another video for putting them on canvases with Mod Podge, I think, and I happen to have three, so maybe that is a good fit. I love the sushi one – maybe kitchen art?

Any ideas for me? Leave them in comments, and links are hugely welcome if you have one, to your blog or another you found in your travels.

  1. I’ve used them as backgrounds for cards. I’ve also heard about decoupaging them onto things, depending on the design, I think it’d be really cool.

  2. I am sure I’ve seen them used to decorate candles. From what I remember, you put the design on the candle, cover it with wax paper and then heat it, and the wax absorbs the design.

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you found something interesting and welcome your feedback. If you ask a question, and don't add your email, do either subscribe to replies or check back. I try to answer every question if I can. Cheers!
