We are getting so close to Christmas!! We are already on our 10th week of our 12 Weeks of Inspired Christmas Creations and you are going to LOVE what I'm gonna show you today, especially if you are short on time (and money!)!! We have a coupon code in the online store until Dec 18 only 50% off one stamp set from the online store www.inspiredstamps.com
Ok, for this project you will need to raid your children's toy stash (or run to the dollar store quick) and get a few puzzle pieces! I used the following products....inking a puzzle piece as shown:
Next I stamp my puzzle pieces using Inspired Stamps and Staz-On permanent ink (most puzzle pieces have a glossy surface that won't take dye based inks well). Just make sure you have the Staz-On cleaner and us it IMMEDIATELY with your stamps or it can ruin them. I use it all the time and have yet to ruin one, so just be sure to clean them and you'll be fine!!
After you stamp, use a big Sharpie marker to color the edges (it's not required, but makes a DRAMATIC difference in the finished look of the tag):
Next I punched holes in the ends and added ribbon. The back side is white so you can can your To: From: message there with your Sharpie black marker:
Of course we are having another GIVEAWAY!! Next week we will have our BIG GIVEAWAY with all the prizes that went unclaimed and some other goodies!!
