Paper Napkins Collage

I have a thing for paper napkins. I don't know how many packages of napkins I have, but every time I'm in a gift store, target, wallmart, home goods or similar store, I buy napkins. There are so many pretty designs!!! So I was really excited when I came across this tut from Roni http://inkstainswithroni.blogspot.com/2010/07/layered-napkin-collage.html. Go check out her blog. She has a lot more ways to use your napkins. I immediately wanted to try this, and I thought it would be cool to make my own background paper with this technique. So all the credit for this technique goes to Roni, but I wanted to share with you the steps I took to make my LO.



Here are some of the many napkins I have


I started by glueing some book and music paper on a piece of cardstock



Then I added pieces of the paper napkins (only the top layer)


This is the finished background


If you want to tone down the colors, you can add a white wash. Here you can see the difference.

and/or you can add some beeswax and perfect pearls


Here is my finished layout


and here is the finished tag.

Try it! It is really fun to do!!!

Happy creating!

Bonnie
