Learn How to Make a Napkin Ring from a Waffle Flower Dolly Die-cut

The fine detailed Doily die from Waffle Flower is versatile to use beyond card making. Covered with Mboss embossing powder in Gold, it gives the look of a true metallic made piece that works as the main body of the napkin ring. By choosing from any of the colors of the Mboss embossing powder you can match your table theme. Simple and easy to make, this napkin ring shows excellent around a white cloth napkin.

Skill: Beginner to Intermediate
Time: 1 hour per four pieces

Die-cut a doily circle with the Waffle flower die. Waffle Flower dies work with any brand of machine such as Spellbinders or Sizzix.

Press the VersaMark watermark ink pad on the die-cut dolly, cover with the Mboss gold embossing powder and heat set. Repeat once more to create a thick texture.
