I first saw this napkin fold on Stacey's blog, (Stacey's post has a link to the tutorial) I thought it was a very cool idea and wanted to give it a try. It is made from a 12" x 12" sheet of shimmery white card stock and measures 6"x6" when closed. The edging is done with a Martha Stewart *punch around the page*. The papers are some that I have in my stash, ribbon is from Walmart.
Here it is opened up.
The centre could be decorated or used for a sentiment. I didn't decorate the corners because the paper is so nice & I thought it would look okay plain, but I may decide to add something....maybe a little bling like is on the front.
A closer look at the front decoration, this is part of the belly band which holds it closed & ties with a ribbon. I chose this ribbon because it is so pretty but it is quite stiff & doesn't make a very nice bow. Next time I would use a softer, wider ribbon so that I could tie a nicer bow.
This is the back, the band is glued down.
Thanks for dropping by,
