If there ever was a purpose for printed and especially ‘floral’ printed paper napkins it would be découpage and nothing else. OK maybe to pretty up your table-scape for a photo shoot but for NOTHING ELSE. How on earth can anyone with even an ounce of sense ever wipe their face or mouth (that has gravy on it) with those gorgeous things and then crumple it and then throw it away? It would be a crime!

Most of the tips I picked up have been through YouTube videos from patioelf. She makes some mean stuff. Love her tips and techniques.
Can’t wait to make some more stuff!!
