Napkin Crafting

I was watching QVC the other day and was interested in Napkin Collage Kit however I did think it was a little expensive, so I had a little think and decided I could do similar with just ordinary napkins, there are so many pretty ones about, also I knew we had some nice flowery one in the kitchen. I used just a quarter of one napkins to cover my white tag.

First I cut the napkin into four, then I separated the layers to leave just the top one. I then modge podged a plain white tag and placed the napkin on top I modge podged over it all and left it to dry. I then stamped when not quite dry onto tag to get a misty effect to the stamping. I choose to stamp clock dials over the base to add depth to the project.   I then added a butterfly I had cut out and stuck on card  from the napkin. I also stamped over the butterfly for added texture.  I added embellishments to compliment the design and finally some string to hang the tag from a bag with. I love this method of crafting and will certainly be having another play with it I must look out for all those christmas Napkins :)
