Welcome back to Waste Not Wednesday! For those who have been following along for a while, you’ll know Waste Not Wednesday as a linky party. But Leanna and I have decided to change things up a bit. Each Wednesday, we will be bringing you fun projects from us and some of our favourite bloggers. This week’s theme is all about Christmas In July!
- Cotton Bags
- IOD Decor Stamp – Holly Jolly
- IOD Decor Stamp – Typesetting
- Black Ink
- Grid Thin Mount
- Old tea towel
Step 1 – Give your cotton bag a nice hot press with your iron to get rid of any crinkles. Line out your Holly Jolly stamps in a design that you like making sure that the raised part of the stamp is facing the cotton bag.
Step 2 – Line your Grid thin Mount over your design and press firmly on your design. Pick up your grid thin mount and turn over. Load up your brayer with ink and apply to your design. Be sure to remove any excess ink from the grid mount with a baby wipe because you don’t want that going onto your design.
Step 3 – Place a piece of scrap carboard inside the cotton bag becuase you don’t want the ink seeping through to the back of the bag. Line up your design and stamp. Be sure to make sure that you go over the entire design not pushing to hard otherwise you will blur your design. Fill in any missing letters
Have fun making different designs and different coloured inks.
They would make fun gifts for family, friends and teachers. A perfect alternative for gift wrapping too. The possabilites are endless and would love to hear about your santa bag that you make! Feel free to leave a comment below!
