Club night...Napkin project..

On our club night last Weds one of the projects we did was using napkin/serviettes and making them into cards....we did two different methods one using Mod Podge and the other using cling flim....
For my owl card I used Mod Podge, I used a piece of sticky back paper and stuck my single layer serviette to it then applied one coat of Mod Podge all over....napkins/serviettes make lovely cards and there are some beautiful ones around.
To embellish my owl I used some backing paper from my stash, embossing folder and cut out two leaves from a little die, made some tiny flowers, added a sentiment and you have a lovely card.
 For this card I also used Mod Podge, cut 3 stems from my Memory Box Chole die, Stampin Up butterfly stamped onto coloured card then I've painted them with bleach to give to lighter colours......
This card was made using the cling film method....take a piece of card lay it down  add a piece of cling film on the top then place your one layer napkin on top of your cling film and on top of that place a scrap piece of paper, you then get an iron (not steam) we used a travel iron to 'iron' on the top this then melts the cling film and sticks your napkin to your base layer of card....it gives a lovely smooth almost velet like finish...as opposed to the Mod Podge which give a lovely textured feel...heres a UTUBE link Cling and Napkins

I just added a button face, punched a small border with  and added some co-ordinating ribbon.... 

Will show the other project we did later in the week...

Great makes Anne - love the owl especially. I have a huge stack of napkins as I can't resist the pretty ones - only thing is you never use up the entire pack do you! Wish they would do 'random packs' where you get one design of each! xx

Goodness me Anne, how on earth can I choose a fav today, I love the striking colours of the owl card, the Agapanthus on the second and the vibrant colours of the third. Fabulous post.

Your cards are so lovely. Thank you so much for sharing how you did this. I just received a lovely paper napkin in the mail last week...and I can't wait to give this a try. I already have the sticky paper. I used it when I use fabric on my card...and have some cling film..it's what I use to make a window card. I think that's the same as what you have used here?
