These napkin dresses are such a perfect addition to a baby shower or a bridal shower!

Start by taking each side of your napkin and folding it to the center…

    These are great. I'm always a fan of easy ideas - I am more likely to start AND finish a project if it is easy. I especially like the trim you chose for the bridal shower version - it adds just the right amount of texture, interest, and elegance. Who would have thought a paper napkin could be elegant? I would never have guessed it could, but you managed to do it. Love it.

    Oi. Interessante o uso que você fez do guardanapo. Acredito que com guardanapo colorido deve ficar muito interessante também. Obrigada pela dica.

    I believe that with napkins printed with flowers or other designs should be very interesting too. Thanks for the tip. ( I am from Brasil)

    I am so happy to have stumbled up on this website!!! I just sent a picture to my sister of the paper napkin dress. I am in love. I wanted something different for my baby shower, and this is it (in a good way). Okay back to cutting up paper (I'm trying the craft out while I'm at work and there is no napkins around) Thank you once again!!!
