Celebrations: valentine fabric tags

I finally had a chance to make good use of some fun Valentine rubber stamps that I have.

I used the stamps on fabric to make some tags or labels for Valentine gifts. Rather than use an ink pad, I used craft paint. For the heart stamp, I used Plaid Folkart in Deep Tomato Red. To apply the paint to the rubber stamp, I used a Martha Stewart foam pouncer and dabbed the paint directly on to the rubber stamp. When using this method, do a few tests on scrap fabric until you’re sure of the right amount of paint to apply.

This pretty red box gets a custom label with a rubber stamped piece of muslin, corrugated cardboard and twine. Now I just need to fill it with homemade fudge, toffee bark or some other yummy treat.

An old mason jar is ready to be filled with “confectionary candy”. This label was created using Martha Stewart Craft Paint in Pink Dahlia.

A bright red composition book is turned into a fun journal or idea book. These would make great teacher or classmate Valentine gifts. 

This plain vase is now Valentine ready. Wouldn’t short red roses look pretty in this vase? Maybe I’ll get some for Valentine’s Day.

I love how these turned out and to me, using craft paints is easier than an ink pad.

Thank you for visiting.
