Welcome to a new post in my series Styled X3! I look forward to these posts every month because I love to see what the other bloggers do with the items I send them.
I was extra excited for this month's Styled X3 because I knew these ladies would knock it out of the park. I sent Brook from All Things Thrifty and Jen from With Heart, these cloth napkins from Target.
This week has been nuts. I had four big projects all due today to different brands and one just didn't get done. I may have shed a few tears while inhaling a Frosty last night. And then I went to edit the pictures from my Styled X3 project and realized the whole shoot was done with my camera in the wrong setting. It took me an hour to get 3 photos decent enough to post. I need another Frosty....
I got up this morning and reshot the cork boards with the right setting this time. Much better :)
I ran through my head all the possible things I could do with these napkins and I had a hard time deciding because really, there are a million things. I could have sewn them into pillows, made a valance, covers a flower pot, covered a cardboard box for storage or even simply framed it for art.
But I went with cork boards!
You could obviously use regular fabric for this project but we all know sometimes you fall in love with a print on a vintage sheet, or some curtains, or even... cloth napkins! So I say, go for it.
I spray the cork board with spray adhesive first on the side that will be all the way covered with the fabric. Then I trim and excess fabric. Using a glue gun, I glue the fabric to the back.
It really is that simple! You can glue a looped ribbon to hang it, or a soda pop can tab, or a saw tooth picture hanger.
Have you ever fallen in love with a print from an unexpected fabric source? What did you do with it? I would love to hear!
Also, don't forget to check out Brooke's and Jen's projects!

Would love to see the finished project hung in place after you finish your Frosty, of course.

I love this - Would look great next to my desk space. I always seem to be forgetting things. Fabric choice was perfect!
Stephanie @ This Abundant Life
Those turned out great! What a super easy project and such an affordable way to get cute fabric! Thanks for sharing!
They look great! Very clever idea
I love this! Fun project!
Oh i love this idea! I always get fabric crushes and can't decide how to use it. Pot holders are a fun project because then you see the fabric often and actually put it to good use.
