Again I thank you SO much for stopping by,
I stamped the image on watercolor paper using Staz On Black ink. I colored it in with markers and a blender pen. I then lined it up in the 1" circle punch and punched it out. It fits perfectly inside the bottle cap. I did use just a tiny touch of double stick tape to hold the paper in place on the bottle cap. Add the crystal Effects and place it in a toaster oven on a foil lined metal sheet. Heat at 300 degrees Fahrenheit until it melts, which is about 30 seconds on a hot oven. A bit longer if the oven is cold. You'll be able to see it melt. Once it's melted carefully remove it from the oven and set it aside to cool. Once it is cool you will be adding the pin back to it. Take the sticky strip and add a little strip of it to the back of the pin. Remove the red protective tape and affix it to the back of the bottle cap. Take the cap and add a thin layer of Crystal Effect around the edge and immediately dip it the glitter. Set it aside to dry. It takes about 20 minutes for this to set up. Once it's dry you can find a piece of card stock you like for a background, punch two holes in it where the pin back tops and bottoms are. I like the circle at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o'clock. This will allow the closed pin back to be pushed through enough to make the bottle cap lay flush against the card stock.For those of you who do not have a toaster oven you can use your embossing tool. You will heat up the bottle cap and little by little add the embossing powder until it's about 1/8" thick. Thicker is ok too, just don't overflow it. You now have an adorable (easy to make) pin to give as gifts, keep for yourself or to sell. Be sure to add the Stampin' Up! copyright to the items you sell!!!
Thank you SO much for stopping by,
Ok, for this post we have a Santa Bag. You're going to need something to put all these wonderful Santa items in now aren't you? I got this bag at Michaels. It was already red. For Stampin' Up demonstrators you can measure the front of the white Stampin' Up! bags and put a piece of red card stock there and you're ready to go!!
I measured the height of the bag and cut my white card stock accordingly. I cut it 3 inches wide so I had plenty of room to tear it on both sides. The belt is 1-3/4" wide and is the length of the bag front. I cut the buckle 1-3/4" x 1-3/4" and I added a 3/4" square piece of black card stock on the top of that. You can either cut the card stock or punch it. I had the punch so I used that. I used the 1" round circle cutter for the buttons and they were punched out of black card stock. I glued everything in place and now I have a bag for all of my fun Santa items I've been making. I have a couple more items in this Santa Theme left to come so stay tuned!!!
This bag is also great for a Make N Take. It's a cute bag to use to wrap a holiday gift in this season!!!
Also in this same theme we have the Santa Candy Pull with instructions, the "Poppin' Santa" tutorial. The "Santa Nugget Box." The "Santa Candy Cane" (with instructions). A Santa card. And last but not least, the "Santa Tissue Holder." (and it's REALLY not least!!!!) Plenty here to plan your own Santa Theme Stamp Camp!!! And I have a few more to come too in a few days!
Thank you all SO much for stopping by!
