 A few years ago, I invited myself thought it would be a good idea if my co-worker cooked me dinner. The first dinner was just me, I believe. However, the second dinner, included 3 of us, Ang, Nancy, and me. At this little get together, Ang had these awesome napkins. I have kept it ever since. I finally decided to use it in a craft project.
Here are the steps:

I started with this frame. It was 10 cents, I believe. I thought it had 'potential' at the time.

I cleaned it off to make sure that there wasn't dirt or grime. Prior to taking the picture I had removed the glass and the backing.
I used my white to paint. I did it light to give it the 'aged' look.

While I was letting the paint dry, I decided to work on the napkin.  I started by taking the glass and tracing it on the brown card stock. 

Once that was complete, I looked through my ribbon found the perfect one! So I measure it out. Cut. Then prayed it was right. 
I used two-sided tape on the back of the ribbon.

Prayed again that it would look right when I taped it on.
I also added tape to the back of the napkin.

Final product

I'm not going to lie, I smile every time I walk by it. 

I'll get better at taking pictures.
Until then...
Take it easy.
