{fall cocktail parties} DIY Cocktail Napkins

It's the small details that excitement me when I entertain!  For example, I think it's clever to embellish solid, inexpensive cocktail napkins with a rubber stamp.  The possibilities are endless like Merlot-colored grapes stamped on gold napkins; gold flourish design stamped on rust colored napkins; or a perennial favorite - white monogram stamped on black napkins.

Ready to stamp cocktail napkins?  It's really quite easy! 

You'll need:
cocktail napkins
rubber stamp
slow drying ink pad
detail embossing powder
embossing heat gun

Blot ink pad to rubber stamp
Stamp cocktail napkin
Sprinkle embossing powder on design; shake off excess (save for the next napkin)
Heat stamp design in slow circle motions, holding gun about 2 inches away

I recommend practicing a few times on scrap paper before stamping napkins.
