Well, I want to share two quick projects I created using this month's cosponsor's Just For Fun Rubber Stamps. Lets get started.
I started with a Christmas card envelope that I messed up. Instead of throwing it away I decided I wanted to use it as a pocket for a journal…the flap is actually on the end of the envelope which will make it easy to put memorabilia in it.
I stamped The Holiday Wish image onto a piece of cardstock from the Joyeux Noel Paper Collection. Also from the same collection I cut various sizes of cardstock for the front of the envelope. The piece of cardstock that has writing on it is actually from packaging that had charms on it. I thought it would add the perfect touch to the envelope.
I inked all edges of the cardstock before adhering to the envelope and splattered a little ink to give it an aged look. I finished off with buttons, sequins and Dew Drops.
Next little project is a gift card holder using a mini paperbag which I have a diecut for but you can use a store bought one too.
I stamped the A Christmas Note sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock, inked the edges, added scraps of the same Joyeux Noel Paper Collection which I then adhered all pieces to the bag.
I finished off with tying a piece of Twine to the bag. It is a very quick project to knock out and you could have several made up in an hour.
If you have any questions about these projects let me know. Also be sure to stop by the Altered Pages blog to see what each designer has created.
