honeycomb hexagon stamped napkin

I’ve had this idea to make a quick stamp out of cardboard for a while now, and I’m happy to report that it works awesome. This project took me about 20 minutes total and turned out super cute.  I bought a whole slew of colorful linen napkins from Crate and Barrel the other day and now I’ve got a honeycomb pattern that is cool, unique and ready just in time for spring drinks (we can hope, right?).

Like I said, this is a quick project using cardboard as a stamp!  I know you’ll love it!  If you’d like the full tutorial and materials list 

Materials:

  • Tulip Soft – White Fabric Paint
  • Solid Color Napkins
  • Scrap Piece of cardboard, at least 6″ long.

ONE using a ruler, bend your cardboard piece at inch intervals until you’ve bent it six times.  TWO cut on the last (sixth) bend.  THREE tape the cardboard piece into a circle (a hexagon circle!).

FOUR dip your hexagon into the paint. FIVE stamp your napkin. SIX repeat in whatever design you’d like!

Such a cute turnout, right?  It looks like something you could buy at West Elm, but when your friends come for drinks, you’ll get much more satisfaction saying, “I made them” when they ask where you got the impossibly cute napkins. I know that we could buy half of the stuff we make around here, but to me, it’s all about the satisfaction of knowing that I created something beautiful, you know?
