Gift Ideas, Stampin' Up!

Stamparatus Storage with Monogram Tag

Dear Crafters,

I’m popping in this morning for this brief post, as I’m heading to Sydney this morning for the OnStage event tomorrow at Luna Park!

I won’t be able to share all the excitement until Tuesday when the spoiler alert ban is lifted, but I’m certain there will be lots of new product and gorgeous goodies in the upcoming Annual catalogue, a copy of which I will get my hands on tomorrow!

Today I share something I have created for Bev who is going to Sydney with me. We usually make swaps (card fronts) to take to these events to swap with other demonstrator friends, but I completely ran out of time with work being so busy and with Easter on top of that 😦

You may remember I posted earlier in the week with a different form of storage for the Stamparatus to sit on your desk, you can see it here if you missed it, but today I have this idea for travelling with your Stamparatus!

Luckily I managed to get my hands on a couple of these toiletry bags from Kmart which are the perfect size and storage idea to fit our new Stamparatus. I’m guessing there will be many others who rush out and purchase one, and they only come in black, so I needed to find a way to make them our own, and what better way than with a Monogram tag!

First of all, I die cut the 3rd largest die from the Lots of Labels Framelits and cut the shape from Shrink Plastic (or shrinky dinks), then punch a hole at one end. It’s critical you do this before heating and shrinking it! Next, stamp your images. I’ve used Basic Black archival ink for the large letter and Pumpkin Pie ink to stamp the heart from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set. Then let the magic begin as you heat it with your heat tool and watch it shrink!

Here’s a closer look.

and here is the toiletry bag open…. it actually could hold 2 Stamparatus if you had them, as an easier way to transport them to Workshops outside of your home!

and once I made Bev’s, I had to make one for myself, of course!  I love butterflies, so I stamped them in Bermuda Bay ink. The small mobile phone lanyards were purchased on eBay.
