First Day of School Photos (which you can check out by clicking on it) and to decorate my wall. Unfortunately my combination of patterned fabrics do not photograph well, so the the bunting is a bit hard to read online. With that being said today I am going to show you how to take a paper lunch sack from blah to Amazing!
Tutorial: PAPER LUNCH SACK BUNTING BASE
Paper Lunch Sacks
Craft Paint: I used Making Memories Scrapbook Paint in Spotlight
A Foam Brush
Foam Stamps: I used a set I got in an Ali Edwards kit years ago, I'm pretty sure it's making memories too.
Okay lets get started. We need first to apply the paint to the stamp. Pretty easy, but a few tricks here; First, make sure that you prep your stamps, if you have never used them before, by giving them a quick little wash. Second tip is that you should put the paint onto your foam brush them apply it to the stamp. If you do it this way you will have better control over the amount of paint that is applied to the stamp and therefore you will get less paint overage when you use the actual stamp. This should ultimately give you a crisper stamped image.
You can make all the bases the same or play around with it like I did and make different bases.
OR if you want to just make the bunting and you are not a huge painter you can purchase a set of 6 Paper Lunch Sack Bunting Bases that I made for you and put up in our shop.(Already gone, I'll make more if life allows) I only made a few extra so you better hurry! You can use these for anything, I would love to see what you can create. Next week I am going to show you how we use the bottom of the paper lunch sacks to create the actual bunting, so follow our blog and like us on Facebook so that you do not miss out!
As always I am linking up to as many of these Phat Parties as life allows and we are challenging ourselves with the CSI contest here.
