Napkin Knots

Learn how to tie some knots before you "tie the knot". I have always been inspired by Martha Stewart's bright ideas and I just love this one.....tied napkins on each plate.The napkins may also include a strip with your placecards.Here's how you do it:

1.Place napkin on a flat surface. Fold it in half diagonally to form a triangle, and fold loosely from the point up to the crease.

2. For the paper strips, start with quilling paper, which comes precut, or cut your own; they should be 1 inch wide and 2 inches longer than the napkin size (24 inches for a 22-inch napkin). Calligraph names on the strips, leaving about 4 inches blank at the end. Place one strip upside down on a napkin, as shown

3. Holding the strip and napkin together, tie into a loose knot.

4. Trim ends of the strip on the diagonal; adjust the paper if necessary so the name shows.
