Here is the project that I will be making today. For those of you who do not have a fast enough internet connection to watch the video you can see my step shots and instructions below.
To create my sunflower ribbon for the burlap tote I used CR_02097 Stitched Sunflowers Vintage Labels Eight Clear Stamps, StazOn Saddle Brown ink, Spectrum Noir Markers™ -CT2, CT4, GB3, GB6, CG2, TN6, EB7 and May Arts 2.5" Cotton Blend Vintage Print -Plain. To fray the ends of the ribbon pull off a few strings on each end.
Randomly stamp the large sunflower, small sunflower and leaf across the entier piece of ribbon using StazOn Saddle Brown ink. Here you can see the entire piece of ribbon after all the images were stamped. This is the first look–if you want something very natural looking you could stop here.
For the second look–ink the edges and blank spaces on the ribbon. Doing this will give the ribbon a aged and richer look. If you don't want to do any coloring you would stop here.
Now for the third and final look–adding color using Spectrum Noir markers. When coloring the images try not to color up to the inside lines so the color doesn't blend with the ink. When coloring the ribbon I am doing it very lightly and the colors just blend in to the ribbon. This is quick and easy basic coloring and would be great even for someone who is new to alcohol markers. Here is the ribbon once the entier piece was stamped, inked and colored. I love how this turned out! It is so quick and easy to customized your stamped ribbon and it will look like printed ribbon.
For the next part of my project I will be stamping on the cut shapes. I used SVG-02097 SVG Stitched Sunflowers Vintage Labels Eight Cut File Download for CR-02097 and the Silhouette Cameo to cut the shapes.
I used the exact cut file to cut these shapes and I find it a lot easier to stamp them if I have the stamp facing up and then place the SVG cut file on top of the inked stamp.
TIP: Before inking the stamp, take the cut image and line it up on the stamp and then set it to the side.Then ink your stamp. It is a lot easier to pick it up and place on the stamp the SVG once you have it lined up instead of inking the stamp and then holding the cut image above and moving it around to line up.
Rub over the back of the paper and carefully lift it up.
To color the images I used Spectrum Noir markers. All of the markers are in the supply list at the end of this post.
These cut shapes are going to be added to the tag. To create the tag I used JustRite Die- JB-02087 Vintage Labels Eight Dies. For the larger piece I used brown cardstock and for the smaller piece I used kraft. I stamped the frame image and sentiment from the C CR_02097 Stitched Sunflowers Vintage Labels Eight Clear Stamps on to the piece of kraft. I adhered all of the pieces together using E-Z Runner and 3D Foam Squares.
Here is a look at the finsihed burlap bag. Like I said this is a wine bag but you could actually use it for anything you would like. This will make a beautiful altered bag for gift giving.
With just a few supplies the burlap bags are very inexpensive and quick and easy to alter. I purchased a set of the burlap bags at Walmart in the craft department and they were $3.47 for the two bags.
