I'm so pleased that my burlap ring was well received. It got such nice attention! I have some more napkin rings for you. The burlap one had a bit of funky looseness to it (in a good way!)... these are minimalistic and modern.
They are also free and entirely from your recycling bin. Introducing my new love: security envelopes. The variety of interior patterns your bills come in are vast and beautiful. Simply paste a strip to a TP tube and add a contrasting one on top. Maybe stamp a number or initial. Easy.
I've been playing around with these papers all fall. My entire family has gotten into the action. Sometimes we all traipse out to the mailbox to see what patterns have arrived. Bills have never been so exciting! This is a little black and gray set, but I have lots of blues and a prized green one, too.
I kept the above napkins rings simple, so that you could really see the paper, but what if you added some shapes... or a sprig of berries!
I've come up with several projects I'll share in the future, but for now please enjoy this list of security envelope craft links from some very creative folks:
little idea notecards
business card holders
center piece and flowers
inside out security envelopes
one of my favorites:
the security blanket
Aren't they fun!?
