Quick Thanksgiving Napkin Ring With my "Autumn Blessings" digi

Hello and HaPpY MoNdAy!!!

I needed to find some napkin rings to match my new tablecloth and napkins for Thanksgiving. Didn't find any I liked and being the crafter that I am...I made them!
They whipped up so fast and easy that I will probably start making napkin rings for all of my parties!

I started with the "Autumn Blessings" digi stamp that I illustrated for Clear Dollar Stamps.
Get an instant download for just $2.50 HERE.
Don't forget to add the free digi of the month to your cart while you are there.
It's illustrated by the awesome Laurie Wilson.

You just can't beat 2 sets for $2.50!!! ;)

The wonderful thing about digis is you can resize them to however big or small you need. I needed them to fit inside Clear Dollar Stamp's new "Designer Labels" die.

I used 6" by 2 3/8" pieces of K&Co "Fall Leaves" paper and some Bazzill "Clover Swiss Dots" to make a band. I then punched holes in the label to run a piece of Really Reasonable Ribbon's "Moss Swirls" ribbon through.
I added some silk Fall leaves from the floral department of Hobby Lobby and the finishing touch is that beautiful "Fall Medley" leaf shaped gem from Creative Charm's November "Fabulous Fall" Kit of The Month.

By the way...There has been such a demand for Creative Charm's "Falling For Fall"  Deal of the Month that Midori has released it a week early!
