Welcome to the final day of the Always Crafty Workshop week! Today's tutorial is inspired by napkins I've lusted over for a long time at one of my favorite local stores, terrain. Unfortch for you and me, they sell them for $18...EACH. That's slightly ridonk. So what do we do? We make em ourselves. Here's what you need:
Letter stamps (bought at Michaels)
Acrylic stamp base (I cheaped out and bought a $1.19 sheet of acrylic at Lowes and cut it versus the $10 blocks at craft stores)
Fabric Paint (Pay attention to the different varieties, you probably don't want puffy paint)
Paint dauber ( I used Martha Stewart brand from Michael's)
Line up your letters on your acrylic base. Remember to do it as a mirror image so that when you turn it over, it reads correctly, in the right direction.
Line up your stamps and press down.
Remove the stamps carefully. If it's not dark enough, simply re-stamp it. I did.
This paint dried pretty darn quickly but I hit it with my hair dryer for a few seconds to play it safe. I also washed them on a normal setting and they came out just fine. A little wrinkly but that's neither here nor there.
A lot of the Always Crafty girls got, dare I say, crafty and stamped some other fun things too, like Noms, Yum, their monogram and Eat & Drink. They also lined up the words vertical instead of horizontal. It all looked good! Just freakin do it.
