Patriotic Napkin Rings

Martha has a tutorial on her site to make these cute napkin rings.  All you need is ribbon, buttons, fabric glue and covered elastic. 

And these instructions:

You will need a 15-inch-long piece of 1/2-inch-wide grosgrain ribbon for each napkin ring. To begin, make a series of 1/2-inch accordion folds in the ribbon, holding them in place as you go. Push a threaded needle with a 1-inch tail through the gathered folds, along the bottom edge. Holding on to both ends of the thread, carefully slide the folds into the shape of a circle. Before closing the circle, tie the ends of the thread into a knot, snipping off any excess. Glue the ends of the ribbon together with fabric glue to create a full circle with a small hole in the middle. Thread 4 inches of covered elastic through 2 holes of a button, and tie the ends into a knot. Glue the button to the center of the bottom side of the burst.

WAY CUTE!! Every year I host a "patriotic party" all the food is red, white, and blue. It's a lot of fun... I think I will make those this year, and I think I may also stray from the food and go a different route this time
