Paper Napkin Background


I recently read a tutorial about making background paper with paper napkins and cling wrap.  Shortly after that one of my friends brought a snack to my house accompanied by these colorful napkins.  I just had to give the technique a try!  I think they came out pretty good!  For this card I used a 4 x 4 piece of Whisper White card stock.  I put a small piece of cling wrap over that, with the pretty paper napkin on top.  Cover with a piece of scrap and press it with a medium iron.  The cling wrap melts and holds the layers together.  Then I trimmed the excess about 1/2 inch from the Whisper White, added some snail adhesive and wrapped the excess to the back side!  Background done!
