Holiday Projects: Napkin Wrap Tutorial

Napkin rings/wraps - Kemper

Hello!  Back today with my second project for Xyron’s 30 Days of Holiday Projects. Loads of projects are linked on Xyron’s Facebook Page.  I made napkin wraps for our dinner table (they’re just a bit wider than a regular napkin ring.)

I started by cutting three 3″ strips of 8.5″ X 11″  black card stock and three additional strips of patterned paper from Studio Calico – Magical Collection and American Crafts – Peppermint Express (2 and 3/4″ wide).

I ran the patterned paper strips through my Xyron® 9” Creative Station and adhered them to the black card stock. The patterned paper was 12″ long, so you’ll see there’s a 1/2″ excess.

After cutting off the excess (above), I used my scoring blade and scored at 3.5″ on either side, leaving my center panel 4″ wide.

Fold on the score marks.

I pulled out some Heidi Swapp flowers, Tim Holtz Sizzix dies, and Ranger archival ink.

The Teresa Collins Xyron stapler was perfect for closing the wraps.

I snipped a bit off each edge of the Styled Label die so it would fit my center panel.

After inking the edges with archival ink, I added Ranger’s black enamel accents as decorations on the sides.

I added a Sizzix snowflake, cut from grungepaper and painted white.

Now I just need to make ten more!
