    I just did my napkins for my engagement party Saturday.  They came out great.  I will post a pic once I get home.  I bought a customer stamp from a seller on ebay with our names and the J on it.  Super easy.  I just did it while I watched tv

    I definitely will post pics. I think Im going to check out MIchaels this weekend, I think she said clear stamps were better than the rubber stamps, so I will be looking for that for sure.

    Okay ladies sorry I had to take the picture and upload it.  Here are my napkins that I made for the engagement party this Saturday.  Since my colors are black, white, and silver I used the silver metallic ink.  If I had to do over I think I would just do the black ink on white and silver napkins.  The matallic ink can become really tacky and stick to the napkins. 

    Cost:
    Customer stamp $6.99 from Ebay
    styzon ink $8.99 (with 40% off coupon.  Black ink is only $5.50 with coupon) from Michaels
    cocktail napkins 30 pack for $1.00 at dollar tree




    The great thing is now that I have the set up I can do this for the showers, and the wedding as well.  I plan to get every penny out of this.
