Muslin bags and Stamp A Ma Jig tutorial

Standard

This past weekend, my team, The Power Of Positive Inking met to share lots of ideas, lots of laughs, and lots of nostalgia (to hear the song that has been going through my head since Saturday, click here .  LOVE that Bobby Sherman!)!

Ahhhhh—Ok–back to the project at hand.  I had promised my team members who met a challenge I set for them months ago, a little “somethin, somethin”.  I finally got to give them their  little gift on Saturday.

This would make a great favor, office gift, or “just because”.  Mine was filled with chocolate covered espresso beans but you could fill yours with nearly anything.

Here is a tutorial how to use the Stamp A Ma Jig (a stamper’s BFF!) when making these gifts:

Get some scrap cardboard/chipboard.

TIP for this particular stamp set:  I have marked my wooden block on one end.  Because the image is symmetrical (but you may not have placed your stamp on the block EXACTLY symmetrical), I wanted to be sure that corner I used when lining up the stamp with the “t-square” was the corner I used later when stamping it.   Clear as mud?
