Autumn Decor Napkin Ring Tags & Tutorial

Today, I am sharing a Thanksgiving table decoration created and added to napkin rings.

I snapped photos along the way for a photo tutorial.
I began with a roll of kraft shipping paper with natural fibers, blended distress ink in Fall colors then spritzed lightly with water mist.


Once dry, the leaves and pears were stamped in white craft ink, leaving room for the dies to fit around the images.

The coordinating dies were used to die-cut and dry emboss. 
The leaves and pear are shown below against the paper they were made from.
(A before and after shot.)

The die-cuts were assembled and eyelets, ribbon & cording were added to make tags.  
They were affixed to my existing napkin ring.
The plum color shows up much nicer in person than in the photo.  
These turned out much better than expected.
