A while ago, we decided to try and make our meal times a little more couth with the introduction of napkins. I found some really lovely vintage napkins at our op shop... but have struggled to use them, finding myself wanting to "save them up" for a special event (and since we're not dinner party people these days, that could be a while away...).
When I found a pile of ten cheap, plain napkins on my last op-shop trip, I decided I could make our own non-vintage (but non-plain) napkins for everyday dinners.
Inspired by this tutorial, I prepared my stamp...
(sorry if you're like my mum and offended by food wastage in pursuit of art... in my defence it was an old apple, left at the bottom of the fruit bowl, and I ate the other half even though it was definitely past its prime...)
and got printing.... which went pretty well overall, except for managing to print on the wrong side of one napkin (the perils of late night crafting).
Now to test them out - and hope our meal times are magically transformed into a world of "please" and "thankyou"... (asking too much, maybe?)
