It’s our last day of Party Hop fun! Did you see what we were up to on Tuesday, Wednesday, and yesterday?
Well today it’s my turn to share my DIY with you, on my birthday no less. Hooray!
I made the above napkins and have a free printable for you to make your own. But of course, I had to add some gold sequin trim to glam it up. Nothing is complete without a little sparkle at this party!
But before we get to my napkin DIY, let’s check out what else we have going on today:

Materials

  • Above free printable
  • Printable iron on transfer paper
  • Plain white cloth napkins
  • An iron
  • A printer
  • Scissors
  • Sequin trim
  • Hot glue gun
  • Steps

    1 Print out the reindeer and cut out.
    2 Follow your iron on transfer paper instructions to iron the reindeer onto your napkins.
    3 Cut a piece of sequin trim the length of your napkin.
    4 Approximately one inch at a time, run a line of hot glue fun along the bottom of your napkin – I chose to run it along a stitched seam. Place your sequin trim on top. Repeat until you reach the end of your napkin.
    5 Happy festive dinner!

    *Note: Due to the iron on transfer and the sequin trim, these napkins are hand wash only.

I’ve always dabbled in scrap booking but never took it as seriously as some people do with their incredibly detailed albums of their vacations. Sadly most of my vacation pictures are either in a box or on my hard drive… While I may not be a huge scrap booker, I do LOVE scrap booking supplies. I use them often for crafts, or to embellish presents, cards, or gift wrap. Here are examples of a few things you’ll always find stocked in my crafting drawers.

As you can see, varieties of paper is a very important component of my crafting drawers, but I also like embellishing with buttons, fabric, and sparkly sequin trim.
