Homemade Detachable and Reusable Decorations for Your Napkin Rings

A few weeks ago, I made napkin ring decorations for a Valentine’s party and decided to make more for a Saint Patrick’s Day dinner. These decorations are detachable, so you can use your napkin rings over and over. The best part is that you can send your guests home with a cute magnet to use on their refrigerator. Click here to see my original video.

Here is an assortment of my napkin rings. This time I challenged myself to use a variety of different files and machines. Not sure why, but it sounded like fun at the time!

For these rings, I used a print and cut file from the on-line Silhouette Studio. These measure two inches. If you like them, you can click here to purchase the file.

Next I used my Imagine and the Imagine More Cards cartridge. I only used the shamrock layer from the image on page 7. If you don’t have an Imagine, click here to see some adorable Cricut Craft Room files that would make perfect decorations. Or you could also use an image from A Child’s Year Cricut cartridge.

For this napkin ring decoration I used a free SVG file from SVG cuts and my Cameo. The paper was from my stash. I have the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition, so I can open and use all SVG files with my Cameo. You can also use Make the Cut software with the Cameo to open SVG files. I love using free files!

For complete instructions please click here to watch the video. The technique is easy, nothing is glued to the actual napkin ring, not even a magnet, so you can use your napkin rings with or without a decoration. Easy Peasy!
Thanks for visiting!

These are beautiful! I still haven't tried "print and cut," but you are inspiring me to try it out! I knew you would take off with this Cameo!
