Lesson 9: Applying Paper Napkins to Your Bible

Napkins are fun to use in your Bible because they come in many designs, are thin, and are often transparent allowing the words to be visible after application. They are fun to use, but may bleed through your pages depending on the napkin. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to prep your page, apply the napkin and add embellishments.
