I've known Laura for many years. While our children had their play-date...us mom's had a craft date!
So, when Laura asked me to guest design for her new line of rubber stamps, of course I said yes! How exciting for her! Laura's stamps, Tea in the Garden, are super cute and fun for any project!
To make sun-catchers like mine, you will need the following:
- Tea in The Garden Stamp Set, by Laura K. Bray
- Stamping block
- A black pigment ink pad
- Colored permanent markers
- Colored tissue paper
- Clear contact paper
- Clear plastic (packaging from a store bought item)
- A large beverage cup to trace
- A hole punch
- Colored beads and fishing line
Trace the bottom of the cup onto the tissue. Cut all of these out.
(It helps to have a piece of scrap paper under the tissue paper while you stamp and color)
Peel off the backing on the contact paper circle and lay face up.
Next, carefully place your tissue paper circle in the center of the contact paper.
Take a brightly colored marker and draw a simple design onto the tacky party of the contact paper.
Flip over and smooth out any bubbles with your fingers.
Punch a hole at the top and thread your fishing line and beads.
