Today I made paper napkins backgrounds for shooting my jewelries or other small projects. This is something I long wanted to try mainly to preserve and keep some of my vintage paper napkins. You see, as a little girl I used to collect paper napkins. I had them well into my teen age and then gave out many to friends and younger cousins but kept some dear with me. For example the above floral napkin is about 40-50 years old and on the picture below you can see the tooth of time upon it.
For this project I used some of my old paper napkins.
First I ironed them on low heat to straighten up the creases, then I took a cardboard and applied craft glue on the sides only because glue makes paper napkins wet and unusable, so I wasn't risking ruining them.
With a tissue I wiped the excess of glue and carefully applied the napkin. This napkin is one of my newer ones and I wanted to use it whole - for larger projects. I left it aside to air dry before use.
Or you can make only little squares out of the napkins as I did with these.
I hope I can use them more in the future.
