Adding one simple detail to your next party can really make it stand out! We love this idea of adding a personal touch to your party napkins. Not only do they look amazing, but they were so easy to make! Your friends will all want to know where you got them!
Place your napkin inside the embossing folder. Line up the edge of the napkin with the the edge of your embossing folder.
Place napkin & embossing folder on your Genius Platform and cover with Mat B. Roll through your Evolution tool.
Pull them out and you are done! We LOVE super simple projects like this!
Will you use this idea at your next party?

It's an Easter Egg-stravaganza and we're just hoppin' over some of the crafts we've been coming up with using our new dies. Too cheesy? We can't help it, we're egg-static about these cute crafts! Take a look!
We made this adorable little Easter Basket using our Basket Die. Filled with jelly beans, chocolate or even some Easter grass and eggs, it's hard to go wrong with such a cute template die!
With a optional handle, lattice inserts and basket top - there is so much you can do with it! Take a look at the fun designs Amber over at Damask Love came up with!
We used our Doily Egg and Nesting Card Template dies combined with some Teal Shape 'N Tape to create this bright Easter card. It may have snowed here over the weekend, but, when it comes to crafts, we say, "bring on spring!" What will YOU make with the basket and doily egg dies?

We'll be showing you fun things to do with this cute paper collection all month, so be sure to stay tuned! Take it away Angi...
Hello crafters! It's Angi from the Cokie Pop Paper Boutique. I am lucky enough to have two fun-loving daughters who indulge my love for parties. After the last party, they agreed, "Mom really knows how to throw a party!" Which, unfortunately, only encourages me to find an excuse to throw another!
My project today shows you a fun way to use Lifestyle Crafts dies and Echo Park's Sweet Girl collection to throw your next little girl's party.

Why hello there! Welcome to our little letterpress party. We used a simple combination of die cuts, letterpress and Shape 'N Tape to create this playful little get together.
To make this set, we first cut some Letterpress Paper with the Party Flag Inserts and letterpressed it with the Damask Printing Plate. We then threaded the flag onto our candy-stripe paper straw and added a circle of teal Shape 'N Tape cut with our Tape It Kit. These little glass bottles will make the perfect party sippers.
The simple pennant bunting was made by folding some Shape 'N Tape cut with our Tape It Kit over a string. Next we textured our invitation (A2 Letterpress Paper) by blind embossing it with our Diagonal Stripes Printing Plate. We added a little fun to our invitations by letterpressing a cherry red balloon with the Splendor Printing Plate and fastened it to our invite with some Shape 'N Tape. After putting some final touches of letterpress and a smidge of Shape 'N Tape on our envelopes, we had ourselves a splendid little spread.
What do you think?
