    This template was a bit too big for my (ahem) red paper napkins and red plastic silverware so I adjusted the template to make it smaller. You are all welcome to download and use. Enjoy!

    On the red ones I used some kind of red Stickles glittler glue and on the blue ones I used Stickles Diamond glitter glue. I ended up doing 28 of them for her annual fish boil Saturday night.

    These templates would also make great bookmarks using cardstock. Add a tassel to one edge so it could hang out of the pages. Added to a small patriotic book, this would make a great favor for the children (or adults) at your holiday celebration.
