DIY custom napkins

Make your own custom napkins for a fraction of the cost!

Custom Napkins

Materials Needed:

The PicnicNapkin_DIY_Template!

Paper Napkins
1.5″ Circle Punch
Iron-on Transfers
Ink Jet Printer

1. Download table number’s PDF and print onto Iron-on transfer paper as directed. Depending on what transfer paper you use you made need to revers the template before you print so take special note. Trim each circle out using a 1.5″ circle punch taking extra care to line up the edges. If you don’t have a 1.5″ circle punch than a craft knife can be used instead.

2. Determine where you’d like the design to appear on your napkin and place carefully on your napkin. Follow the instructions that come with the transfer paper to adhere the art work.

3. Ta-da! Unique and custom napkins without the cost!

DIY handmade notepads

This would make a great custom party favor: emblazoned w/ a note to guests or artwork that is reminiscent of your event!

Materials needed:

(How to PDF)
3-4 packs of A2 Note Cards (use two different colors for a jazzy pad!)
Glue Brush
2 Rulers
1-2 Jumbo Binder Clips

1. Stack A2 Note Cards (alternating colors optional). Jog sides back and forth on a flat level surface until desired edge is completely flush.
2. Cover one edge with PVA to bind cards.
3. Carefully sandwich the glued edge between two rulers, then clamp with jumbo binder clips. The rulers will protect the paper from the clips. Set aside to dry.
4. If necessary, apply another layer of PVA and set aside to dry. Once completely dry, unclamp and use!
