know what I am talking about- you finally get that piece of cake, the
last cookie in the jar, the warm toast out of the toaster, and suddenly
all your kids appear with their hungry, pitiful faces and voices coming
to take that moment away.
I have the perfect gift that is going to help everyone out! Mom gets
her well deserved treat and those kids can have some too- if she decides
to make and share.
Aren't these the cutest little gift boxes? You can get yours here from the Silhouette Store. They are the perfect size for a muffin or cake mix with a sweet spot for an extra tool like a whisk or spatula.
Then I found this adorable poem
that really adds to the gift- "If you Give a Mom a Muffin". Just
perfect. I did a simple print and cut on the embellishment page.
done except my box was looking a bit plain. I decided that now was the
time to try out my Silhouette stamp starter kit. Throughout high school I
perfected my doodle of flowers, hearts and smiley faces. (C'mon you
know you perfected your doodles, too!) I thought it would be fun to try
and make a stamp from my doodles- my own personal stamp! Now you can
make one as well.
Stamp Stater Kit
Silhouette Cutting Machine
Paper and Permanent Marker
first drew my doodles on a plain piece of paper with a permanent
marker. Then scanned the page into my computer at a high resolution and
saved as a JPEG.
Brought the file into Studio and did a trace.
I cleaned it up a bit and lined it up to cut on it's little special mat.
Cut it out. Now it doesn't actually cut all the way through but don't worry. Just fold it and those stamps pop right out!
starter kit comes with a nice clear stamp to use and re-use (one of the
best things about clear stamps!). Place the stamp on it. Get out an ink
pad and go to town!
Now doesn't that just add something? It makes it seem so personal, too!
Let me know what stamp you decide to make!
