How do I prepare paper napkins and tissue paper for appliqué?
There are two different ways to prepare your napkin or paper for appliqué, depending on what look you wish to create:

Cutting:
Use small, sharp scissors for cutting out the napkin or paper designs. Cut away any inside areas you don’t want. Hold the scissors stationary while turning the napkin or paper for a clean-edge cut. Trimming is easier when you cut through all three layers of the napkin or paper. Remove the two white layers after cutting out the design.

Tearing: Tearing can be a good choice for some designs because is creates a more handmade or natural look. It’s perfect for children and others who cannot or do not want to cut out the designs. For best results, cut all three layers and then separate.
