Hey there! Is everyone as excited about Christmas as I am?! We just bought a house and our realtor so kindly gifted us our first Christmas tree! So this year I plan to go all out with my wrapping. I want my Christmas tree to look as tho it was straight out of a catalog.
And the holiday release of Ink Road Stamps is perfect for that! I used both Happy Holla Days and Fir Real on these projects. They added such a fun, whimsical touch to my projects. Here’s a look at some of the tags and wrapping I made with these stamp sets. But as cute as these are…they aren’t even my favorite!
Take a look at these adorable muslin bags!
I bought these on a whim, hoping they would turn out. And they so totally did. So I wanted to share a little tutorial on how I made these. First, gather your supplies. You’ll need muslin bags (any size will do but mine are an adorably sized 3×4), stamps, ink pads, chipboard (optional) and clothespins (optional).
I cut some chipboard down to size to lay my bag on top of while I stamped. The clothespins are to stretch the fabric taut so I ended up with a nice clean image. (But if you own an iron, I suppose you could iron them to get the same effect…I don’t know, I don’t own an iron. Lol.)
Once the bag is secured into place, you’ll want to choose the stamp and inks for your bag. I went with traditional green and red…I know, I know, so original. And I stamped one of the phrases from the Fir Real stamp set in red.
You’ll want to make sure you add enough pressure to really get that sentiment onto the bag. I picked up the chipboard and pressed firmly behind it while holding my stamp in place.
And how cute is that?! I thought about keeping it simple…but honestly, I can never leave well enough alone. So I used one of the tree stamps from the stamp set and stamped it in green right below my sentiment.
Now it’s ready to stuff with a special gift and tag for a special someone! You can see how I created a custom tag for the bag below.
I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial and got some ideas for your upcoming holiday wrapping! Thanks for stopping by!
