Today is Day Five and I'm sharing some simple treat sacks that I created out of brown paper bags...

I stamped the bunny image and coordinating sentiment on to the brown paper bag using my Misti. I colored in the bunny using THESE pencils and added one of THESE paper doilies and decorated clothespin to finish it off.

I filled the sac with Easter treats. These would be great for kids or teachers.

I hope you enjoyed this 1 Stamp Set 5 Ways Blog Feature. Thanks so much for stopping by.

1 Stamp Set 5 Ways-Day Four

Today is Day Four and I created some simple decorated egg holders....

These were so simple to create. I started by stamping, coloring, and cutting out the images from the stamp set. I cut a 1 inch x 6 inch piece of cardstock and formed a circle shape around the bottom of the egg and adhered it together, creating an egg holder. I added some foam tape to the back of the images and adhered them to the cardstock strips. Here's a closer look...

These simple egg holders would make great place cards or napkin rings too!

Now, about the eggs. These are the eggs I purchased at Walmart...

My son has an egg allergy and I was on the hunt for some fake eggs that we could dye together. I found these and tested out a pack with my Distress Inks. The eggs come with a dye but I thought it would be fun to see what they would look like with Distress Inks. I LOVE the results...


I applied various colors of Distress Ink on to THIS craft sheet and then spritzed with water. I painted on the ink with a paintbrush. After it was dry I flicked on droplets of water and then dabbed them away with a paper towel, creating a fun texture on the eggs. I think it would be fun to draw on polka dots or lines with water to create a fun pattern on top of the Distress Ink. I will definitely be making more and having my little guy help!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I'll be back tomorrow with another idea using this stamp set.

I'm featuring THIS stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. Today is Day Three and I'm sharing how to create a coloring table runner, perfect for any kids table...

 


 

I placed a straw dispenser filled with colored pencils on the table...

My little guy couldn't wait to start coloring and the straw dispenser was a huge hit!...

  
(Excuse the p.j.'s...I was photographing this first thing in the morning)

To create this coloring table runner, I cut a long piece of paper from a children's art paper roll and stamped the images from the stamp set repeatedly, creating a graffiti-like pattern . The images in this set is perfect for coloring since there are a lot of open areas. I filled in any gaps with the small heart images. 

You can use this idea with any stamp set. This table runner idea is perfect for Birthday Parties and keeps the kiddos entertained while guests arrive/waiting for food. It's basically a giant coloring page.

Thanks for stopping by and I'll be back with another idea for day four.

1 Stamp Set 5 Ways-Day Two

Hello. I thought it would be fun to do something a little different on my blog. I want to feature 1 stamp set and show 5 different ways to use it other than on a card. I'm featuring THIS stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. Today is Day Two and I'm sharing how to create embellishments for hair bows.(If you missed Day One, click HERE)

After purchasing a set of hair bows at Target...

I wanted to embellish them for my nieces. I thought it make cute Easter treats for them so I used the stamp set and stamped a few images on to THIS shrink plastic using Black Staz On ink. I colored the images using paint markers, cut them out and baked them in the oven (325 degrees for about three minutes). The images shrink down (about 70%) and become adorable mini sized embellishments that were perfectly sized for the hair bows. I attached them using a hot glue gun.

This was a simple project that would be fun to do with kids. The sky is the limit with these shrinky dinks...

Thanks for stopping by and I'll be back tomorrow with another idea using this stamp set.
