You CAN afford this decoration

you can afford this decoration

This can become a crazy expensive time of the year -but what if I told you, you CAN afford this decoration?

A couple of weeks ago I was organizing my annual Christmas Card Stack-a-Thon.

This is the last card class event of each year -and I like to spoil the ladies a little.

I was taking my time at purchasing serviettes -and then when I started looking for some they were yuk and expensive.

Am I the only one that’s finding Christmas this year challenging when it comes to food and decorations?

Well, I was mulling over what to do about the serviettes when my mind just went DUH!!!

I often make beautiful tealight holders with stamped images on the tealights as Christmas gifts.

And when I do the stamping, it’s on tissue paper.

You know -the paper you use to blow your nose?

So, that immediately made me realize that I didn’t need to go hunting all over town for serviettes.

I can stamp my own serviettes – and like I can afford this decoration.

So, let’s get started with this project.

And remember -this technique can be used for any kind of celebration.

What you will need for this project

  • Plain white napkins
  • Ink of your choice – for my Christmas theme I used Shaded Spruce and Real Red
  • Stamp set of your choice – for my Christmas theme I used Botanical Layers
  • Ink up your stamp in the colour of your choice and then starting in the centre of the open napkin, stamp in a circular pattern ( I used the Shaded Spruce for the leaves)
  • I went around and around, turning the napkin so that the stamping stayed even
  • I then added some little flowers in the Real Red

You can honestly make these serviettes look as simple or as gorgeous as you want.

As I’m writing this blog post, my imagination is thinking of all kinds of possibilities!!!

So this Christmas, and for any future event – you CAN afford this decoration.

I’m so glad I was inspired with this idea -and it brings me even greater joy to share it with you.
