Hope you are good!
Whoohoo spring is nearly here
and the sun has even been shining!!
Its been a really busy few weeks here,
lots of things going on and not enough hours to fit them all in...
but I took some time out from the chaos to create...
I was thinking
Its been a while since I shared a tutorial and
after getting my mitts on some of the new Tim Holtz stamps,
I was inspired to create something useful
to house some of my growing vintage cutlery collection....
I knew this Stamp was perfect for what I had in mind.....
It also meant I could use some of my French vintage lace.....
You will need:
A piece of 8 x 8 Canvas square (Paper mania bare basics)
Brown parcel paper
Stampers Anonymous/Tim Holtz stamp "Daydream"
Black Archival ink
double sided tape
To start take a piece of the 8x8 canvas
and fold over approx half an inch and sew a hem
(I used black cotton for the tutorial so feel free to use a different cotton)
If you want the hem showing at the front then
fold the canvas in half (so the hem is on the inside) sew the side and the base together to make a pocket
then turn it inside out,
It should look something like this below
cut some brown parcel paper,
stamp the image using Archival ink,
then cut to size (approx 8x6)
Place the stamped image onto the front of the canvas
and carefully wrap it around the pocket,
you can stick it down using double sided tape
I ran a small amount of glossy accents around the base of
the parcel paper and stuck down the vintage lace
I added a little colour by adding some of the Idea-ology jute
And I wanted to make some jute buttons....
pop a blob of glossy accents onto your heat mat
Take some of the jute and roll it into a circle using your fingers....
then place the jute on top of the glossy accents...
Use some pressure from your finger to help glue it into pace
When dry you can add them to your pocket
To finish I took a #stamp and stamped "grateful"
I gently distressed the edges using some of the distress ink minis
(love those minis!)
Hope you found the tutorial useful....
