It is Monday of Global Design Project! And our designer team have a wonderful Xmas theme challenge for you. Today I’m sharing an easy and quick Christmas table decorations idea. I made metallic napkin ring holders using “Festive Flower Builder Punch” from Stampin’ Up! I hope you like it and give it a try. WATCH VIDEO TUTORIAL HERE!

Building the flowers…
I tried several aluminium quality papers and I didn’t like the results when embossing the paper so to give it a bit of body I decided to paste it on top of a 300 grams sheet of card stock using a wide double sided tape. alternatively I found that 3M lapping film 6″X6″ inches sheets with sticky back gave me the best results and it was easier to use.
I used the “festive flower builder punch” to punch out 6 large petals + 6 medium petlas + 2 double small petals. I use a non sticky mat and hot glue to build the flower and I start pasting the larger petals first then the medium size petals and the smaller ones goes in the top. I embellish with a rhinestone jewel from Stampin Up as shown in the pictures below.
Making the ring holder
To make the napkin holder rings I used 3M lapping film and I pasted on top of a piece of 300 grams of black card stock then I cut the aluminium in pieces of 1- 3/4″ x6 = 4.5 x 15cm using a craft knife.
To add texture I embossed the pieces using “Decorative Dots” embossing folder from Stampin’ Up! and a big shot embossing die cutting machine. I punched a small hole to join the ring ends together using a brad as shown in the pictures below.
