DIY Napkin Wrap

June 2nd. 2009 by Abby Larson | Filed Under | 22 comments

There are two reasons that I randomly decided to create this DIY project. The first, is that after seeing so many of you comment on the one crafted for the Aaron Delesie rehearsal dinner, I thought that it would be fun to just give you something that you could do on your own!

The second reason is that I’ve been working so hard at writing, at making the site a beautiful, completely clean and easy place to be, that I haven’t had a chance to get my hands a little dirty lately doing things that I love. So, this filled the gap if even for just a couple of hours!

DIY Napkin Wrap

You can download the Eat, Drink and Be Married Napkin Wrap right here!


8.5 x 11″ 80lb white card stock (like this from Paper-Source)
Color Printer
Paper Cutter
Double Sided Tape


1. Download the Eat, Drink and Be Married Napkin Wrap. Print using the highest settings on your color printer to ensure that the delicate text is crisp and clear. There are 2 wraps per sheet.

2. Cut each wrap on the black dotted line, making sure to cut off all of the black ink so that the edge of the wrap remains white.

3. Create a mock fold around your napkin to see where you should create the creases on each side of the wrap. After you are certain that the wrap will fit snuggly around the napkin, either fold the wraps by hand or using a bone folder.

4. Secure the wrap around the napkin using double sided tape. Please note, there is only a small amount of room to tape the wrap, so make sure that you fold the napkin small enough to allow a bit of extra room to tape the back of the wrap together.
