Paper Doilies

I made the following doily cards this week. "Doily" is a funny word. I decided to look up the origin using Wikipedia. This is what it said...

Doiley was a 17th-century London draper,who made popular "a woolen stuff, 'at once cheap and genteel,' introduced for summer wear in the latter part of the 17th c." At the time, it was used as an adjective, as in "doily stuffs" or "doily suit." Later, usage shifted to refer to "a small ornamental napkin used at dessert," known as a "doily-napkin."
