DIY Cutlery Holders – perfect way to show off your party silverware

Looking for a great idea for your next party, super club or neighborhood get-together?  How about these adorable cutlery and napkin holders that can be designed to match any theme.  Start with a little fabric and your sewing machine and you can add touches of ticking, lace, ribbon, cord, etc., whichever matches your decor style and add a tag, stamp each person’s name or maybe a little greeting.  No sewing machine, no problem, just glue away, there are plenty of great glues for canvas – Beacon’s 3 in 1 is a great choice.
