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.
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.
