Since I showed you my jewelry box makeover, I have been asked about how to print on napkins and I thought I could write a post about it. I have to say it is the easiest thing on Earth, so I took some pictures of the process.
One good thing about DIY is that you can make an endless amount of projects without spending a ton of money, you don’t need to buy all the stuff that is advertised all over but you can make your brain to think about the possibilities with what you have.

How to print on napkins for your decoupage projects
You only need a few materials:
- Regular paper (mine was pink)
- Regular napkins
- Laser Printer
- Painter’s tape (or any kind of tape)
The laser printer is one of the things I consider a must to have. It’s true it’s a bit more expensive to buy than a regular inkjet printer, but it has many benefits. One of them is how much the toner lasts, and you know the ink cartridges are not cheap either. Another reason is that you can use it for other projects as transfer.
1. Napkins have several layers, you only need one so you can keep the others for something else.
2. Cut the napkin a bit smaller than the paper. I used pink paper so you can see better the difference between the napkin, the paper and the table 😉
3. Tape it all around, trying to get the napkin tight. Then, place it into the printer as if it was regular paper.
You will end up with something like this. I designed this for the romantic bench I did some time ago.
4. Cut around tape and enjoy your napkin!!
You see? I told you it was really easy! You can do your own designs if you want, or just download any image you like into the computer and then print on napkins, whatever you prefer.
I hope you find it useful and it helps with your projects too. If you want to see other tutorials you will find them at the Gallery.
