DIY Bow Napkin Rings

    Posted by  ·  July 20, 2014

    Cricut has divided some amazing bloggers into teams and challenged each team member to come up with a project for their home. I am part of  Team 5 so we made our team theme for this months challenge… the number 5.

    I made 5 golden rings! That is napkin rings.

    DIY Bow Napkin Rings

    This is a quick and easy project with the Cricut Explore Electronic Cutting Machine .  I used a shimmery gold flannel backed vinyl (made for tablecloths), metal D-rings and hot glue. All items can be found at a fabric store.

    I used the bow from the gift wrap embellishment from the Design Space.  I deleted the objects I didn’t need and enlarged the bow.
