When it comes to Thanksgiving dinner and other family meals, I always like to add a little something extra. This year I am sharing with you how to make fall dinner linen napkins. I love taking something simple and plain and adding a little extra to make them stand out.
For this project you will need:
- plain white linen napkins
- printable heat transfer
- vinyl cutting machine or stencil
How to make fall dinner linen napkins
The first thing I did was find a design I liked in the Silhouette Studio store. After finding that perfect design, I made sure to size them as needed for my napkins.
As you can tell from the picture above, I also did my registration marks so that I could print this onto my printable heat transfer with my home printer, and then transfer over to my cutting mat and place into the Silhouette Cameo.
When printing onto the heat transfer, make sure you place your paper in your home printer correctly.
After you have printed out your design, place the sheet on your cutting mat and adjust the setting to reflect that you are cutting printable heat transfer material. Then cut.
Once your designs are cut out, peel off the backing and place where you would like to have them on your napkins. Cover the design with a thin cloth and then place your hot iron over the covered design until the transfer is complete. Usually about 90 seconds.
When you are done, you should have a nice little stack of beautiful linen napkins to use at your next feast.
That’s it! I did these few napkins in a little under 20 minutes. Once you find your design, all you need to do is print, cut, transfer, and DONE!
You also don’t have to have a cutting machine to make these. They can just as easily be cut out by hand.
