Napkin and Saran Wrap Background Tutorial

Hi everyone,
Here's a quick tutorial on how I made the Background on Savannah's "Precious Bud" Scrapbook Page. About six months ago on Split Coast Stampers, Lynn from St. Louis showed us this technique for a Technique Challenge and I loved it. I've made a couple of cards using this technique, too.
Here's what you need:
Saran Wrap, Iron, Napkin, 2 pieces of Cardstock and Adhesive.

Next you will need to pull the top ply off of the napkin. This is the part you will use. If you don't, it will not stick to the cs. You may want to cut your cs down about 1/4 to 1/2 inch on the top and bottom, so you can layer it at the end.. Next you will need to tear 2 pieces of saran wrap off and lay them over the 12x12 cs. Make sure you overlap it by at least 2 inches.

Next you will need to lay your napkin over the saran wrap and cardstock

Next make sure your iron is hot, and don't use steam, just heat. Now iron your napkin very slowly. Do not touch the saran wrap with your iron. As you iron the outer edge, and with the iron completely at the edge, lightly pull the saran wrap, it will be melted and pull away very easily.

Here I have done the top and one side and I have pulled the saran wrap away from the edges..

Now it should look like this. All the edges should be clean from the saran wrap and the napkin should be stuck to your cs.

This is what the back will look like. Now take your adhesive and run around all edges of the cs.

Now just press the edges of the napkin over and onto the adhesive.

And there you have it... The other piece of cs is to finish out the back. You will see that I added Regal Rose to the one I did.
Now just add your photos and embellishments... Hope you enjoyed reading this and, who knows, you may want to give it a try...
Thanks so much,

Pin It!
