From the Heart Stamps Project

Hi everyone.  I have a really fun project for you today.  I found the cutest digital stamps at a company called From the Heart.  Anyone who knows me realizes that I am in LOVE with hearts.  I use them on anything and everything and at all times of the year.  Maybe it has something to do with the fact that my maiden name was Hart.  So when I saw the designs at this company I just flipped.  Right away I purchased this digital stamp called Fall Mailbox.

Fall Mailbox

Just look at that cute bird with the heart!  I thought about a project that I could make with this image and here's what I did.

I reworked a box template I had to make it taller and cut it out of heavy kraft paper.  I covered each panel with some pretty fall pattern paper and then assembled the box using sookwang tape.  I took the digital image and resized it to fit on one panel of the box.  After printing it I colored it with Copic markers.  I decided to cut the image and mount it with foam tape to give some dimension.

I found some pretty ribbon that coordinated with the color scheme and that helped add some texture.  I printed the sentiment really small (it comes with the stamp) and used a punch and some rustic twine to tie it to the mailbox image.

Wouldn't this be the cutest favor at a fall family picnic?  All kinds of treats could be put into the box.  I'm imagining caramel corn, ingredients for s'mores or mixed nuts.  I can also imagine a big bonfire and lots of family fun.

So, go check out From the Heart Stamps and I know you'll find something that will be just right for your next project.
