It’s all about the little details. The extra special touches that will make your event truly unique. To embellish this tablescape, I didn’t want to use just any chargers or napkin rings… so using the same scallop design from the candle wraps my designer and I created this DIY Scalloped Charger + Napkin Ring Set. The best part is that the napkin ring actually doubles as a seating card; our Cricut Explore Air is to blame for this projects fabulousness of course.

The Pen Tool

In case you didn’t know, you can actually put a pen in the Cricut Explore Air and it will write whatever you want! Which is what we did for this project…

  • Cricut Pen Set
  • Adhesive
  • Napkins

Import Into Design Space

Download our free SVG file at the end of the post and upload it into Cricut Design Space. The napkin ring is 2.5″ x 7″ naturally, but you can drag the files to make them larger if you need to. Here are the Design Space steps:

  1. Add a “text” layer and type each persons name (I used Cricut font “Chloe”).
  2. Size the text over the blank area on the bottom of the design and make sure that in the layers panel the “write” icon is selected.
  3. Select the individual napkin ring and the text and hit “attach”. This tells the Cricut to write the text on that specific part of the napkin ring.

Do those 3 steps above for as many napkin rings as you need to make!

Once you’ve got your text and design figured out, put your choice of pen into the Cricut, press GO and watch it do it’s magic! Then carefully remove each napkin ring from the cutting mat.

Assemble

Add your favorite adhesive to the backside of the design and wrap around your choice of napkin! Super simple right?! If making these for your wedding or a large event, you might want to delegate someone to wrap these the day of, so that they don’t get squashed in transit.

Import Into Design Space

Download our free SVG file at the end of the post and upload it into Cricut Design Space. The charger is sized to 11.5″ round and so you’ll need to use 12″ x 12″ cardstock for this item. Here I’m showing that you can edit the color, to keep you organized while cutting.

Cut + Remove

Your Cricut is really doing all the hard work for you with this project. It will take around 10 minutes for this file to be fully cut. After it’s done, carefully remove the charger from the cut mat and then clean up the left over cut bits… then display under your choice of plate!
