Hey Everyone! I hope your weekend has been great so far! Today is the 15th which marks the release day for Papertrey Ink’s newest products. For now, you can browse the design team’s blogs for the remaining projects created using those new products. All of the new items will be available for purchase around 10 pm EST tonight! Here are my remaining projects I created to share…
An altered heart tin is perfect to hide those sweet treats. I covered this tin with paper, ribbon and fabric. I stamped the circle embellishment using Tag-its #12.
Don’t forget to leave your special handmade mark on those creative projects. I die cut a Tiny Tag and stamped a sentiment from Handmade Hodgepodge. I added it to the ribbon using button and twine. I love that the twill tape perfectly fits the width of the heart tin lid!
For the heart tin base, I covered it with muslin fabric. I picked up my fabric from a local store (G Street Fabrics for those in the DC Metro area). I trimmed it to a 2″ wide strip and adhered it to the tin using liquid adhesive. Typically, one would stamp the fabric prior to adhering, but oh no, not me (don’t ask why!) So, I decided to use a new stamping tool…my finger! That’s right, I placed the leaf stamp onto my index finger and inked it, then stamped the entire heart tin base. It was actually a fun process using my finger to actually stamp, instead of an acrylic block. This method allowed me to control the inking and roll the stamp over any angled/curved areas of the heart tin. The stamp did not fall off my finger and I actually had to peel it off when I was finished!
For the leaves, I used the Flower Fusion coordinating stem/leaf die. To make it a leaf, I trimmed off the stem and cut around the leaves slightly and voila simple leaves without a stem!
