bow tie paper napkin tutorial

I used these black dinner napkins from Party City. The photos are pretty self-explanatory, but keep in mind that you can change the width of the bow by adjusting the size of the folds in step 3.

    • The photos are in a slideshow right above the text, “I used these black dinner napkins from Party City…” You may need to view the blog on a desktop computer if it’s not showing up on your mobile device.

    • They are actually just strips of metallic gold scrapbook paper (likely purchased at Michaels or Hobby Lobby, but it was several years ago). I attached the paper with a small glue dot.
