Pretty Up a Party with Papercomments (38) October 26th, 2012
Score the upper lobe and fold it down so that it covers the bottom lobe. Using a craft knife, cut a single notch through both lobes from their centers down through their bottom edges. This notch is how you will attach the coral to the paper loop of the napkin ring itself.
Finally, use the remaining strip of red paper (1-1/4 x11 inches) for the napkin ring proper. Glue this strip-end to end-adding a single twist to make it a Möbius strip. The single twist provides a strong vertical edge onto which you can position the notch you cut into your branch coral.
I try to make all of my napkin rings different from each other. Don't be afraid to vary the size and shape and for a slightly less formal look you can even vary the color from orange and yellow, to violet and green. Your guests will delight at your creativity (and don't be surprised if they try to take one home with them.)
