Thanks for joining me today for day two of Waltzingmouse Stamps November Stamp of Approval Parade (SOAP). I have to say, my craft room is a hot Christmas mess and I love it! Today I'm sharing with you a twist on a project I've done before:
As the holidays crank up, I'm always looking for that little something I can make for a teacher, co-worker, neighbor, you name it. I love making things for these folks and I try come up with one project that can work for many. I think this fits the bill:
Any guesses? It's hard to tell, but this is a bottle of hand sanitizer! And what teacher couldn't use more of that? And co-workers? I work in a health care setting, so we have this stuff everywhere! As I mentioned, I made this last year by having the inserts printed, but this year I wanted to try my hand at stamping the transparency that goes into the bottle. Here's a closer look so that you can see what I've done:
I started by cutting a piece of acetate or transparency to the same size as the front of the bottle. I then stamped the entire piece with a stamp from Text It using white StazOn ink. I then stamped over it with the holly and berry stamps from Festive Foliage. Once dried, I rolled it up carefully and inserted it into the bottle, using the tube on the pump to get it into place. Once in place it stays nicely put. I added a little tag using the holly image from Around Christmastime and the sentiment from A Cottage Christmas. I love mixing and matching my WMS sets in this way. They always seem to coordinate so well!
