Once you have all the layers cut out, you can begin to assemble each napkin ring with Bearly Art craft glue.

For the Thanksgiving turkey napkin ring, make sure to apply the feathers to the back of the napkin ring! This is very important so your feathers will show once you wrap it around the napkin. For the detail of the feather arches, I glued each individual piece by hand, however, I highly recommend to use vinyl for this layer so you can attach them together in DS and place them on the cardstock as one piece with transfer tape.

After your Thanksgiving napkin rings are assembled, you can fold your napkins as desired, place the napkin ring face down and place the napkin on top.  Wrap the ring around connecting them at the slits.
