Ahh.. September's just around the corner and this time of year always has a nostalgic, back to school little tinge in the air don't you think? And for us back to school meant one thing and one thing alone, NEW STATIONERY.
Now those days are gone, we've decided to keep the fresh new textbook dream alive with a DIY lined paper napkin tutorial! Perfect for geeking up dinner parties and we also think they would make a rather ace edition to a wedding table setting for bookish types, no?
It's super simple too! Big thanks to the rather dashing Munky of The Apron Co (who make beautiful utilitarian denim, leather and other hardwearing material aprons - we think you'll like them) who did this week's tutorial as per our instruction :)
YOU WILL NEED
Basic cotton, white napkins - you could make your own but for less fuss we used BHS own basic brand - 4 for £5
1. Have a little practice of where to put the red vertical stripe so it appears in the right place when the napkin is folded.
2. And draw on using a ruler.
3. Then mark on both sides where you will draw your blue horizontal lines, as you want them to be super straight for maximum authenticity.
4. Draw 'em on!
5. and that's it! Iron them to make sure the pen becomes permanent as per fabric pen instructions, so they can be washed, and you are good to go.
