Stamped Cloth Napkins with Braided Twine Ties {The Twinery}

Hi there!

Today, I want to share a quick and easy summer project - stamped cloth napkins...all tied up with a braided twine tie: 
First, let's stamp those cloth napkins:
Photo One: Gather your supplies. (Plain cloth napkins, ink, stamps, and twine.)
Photos Two & Three: Stamp your image(s) onto the cloth napkins with ink that will be permanent on fabric. 
Photo Four: Use iron to heat set ink. 

Next, use three strands of twine (one yard each) to create a braided twine tie. I used two strands of The Twinery's Marigold twine and one strand of Pink Sorbet.
Tip: I went back to my friendship bracelet making days and used a binder clip to clip the twine to something steady while I braided it.

I simply knotted each end of the braided twine tie to keep the braid in place.

These stamped cloth napkins are prefect for dressing up those summer picnics...and also make great hostess gifts! 

Quick, easy, handmade, unique, and pretty...what more can you ask for in a summer project?
Twine: The Twinery (MarigoldPink Sorbet); 

Stamps: Unity Stamp Company (Donna Poppies); 
Ink: Memento (Dandelion, Lilac Posies);
Other: Mainstays (White Cloth Napkins);
Tools: Fiskars (Trimmer, Scissors);
