Photo Napkin Rings

Photo Napkin Rings

These napkin rings will inspire an entertaining jaunt down memory lane and serve as place markers too. Guests contribute old photos (how can you not love seeing Gramps on his first day of school or Aunt May with a punk hairdo?). At dinnertime, ask the kids to identify the subject of each photo and then escort that guest to his seat. There are sure to be some laughs along the way!

Materials

  • Digital images of old photos
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Tape

Instructions

  1. Gather digital images or scan old photos. Print each photo and trim it into a square, then glue it to scrapbook paper and trim the paper to leave a 1/4-inch border on all sides.
  2. Cut a paper strip (ours is 1 3/4 by 8 1/2 inches), fold it into four equal parts to make a squared-off ring, insert a rolled napkin, and tape the ring ends together. Use tape to attach the mounted photo to the ring.
