Sometimes I feel like a poster child for Mom Fail. I have a list of projects to do with the kids and it always seems like we never have time to 'create' together. Last week I had my stamps sitting out and since the toddler was asleep, the two middles and I threw together these quick Naughty & Nice Gift Tags for Christmas.
We used 4x4 squares of paper, the Merry Christmas Peel & Stick Stamp Set, PSA Essential Stamper and Centering Block, both the Holiday Green and Holiday Red ink refills, and festive washi tapes.
I'm also sharing a dirty stamping secret so be sure to click that little read more button!
To make our tags we folded the paper in half, stamped the front with the Naughty and Nice dies, and then wrapped the edges in washi tape. It's not complicated or anything terribly special but it was a fun easy way to spend a little crafting time with the kids.
Ahem, now for that dirty little secret. I mentioned before that I wasn't that familiar with stamping before I joined the PSA Design Team and during this time the one lesson I've learned is that it is best to clean as you go. That means keeping my, now very stained, stamping towel close by with a spray bottle of water.
This way I can clean the dies as we go and no one accidentally grabs an ink pad or inked die and then wipes their hand off on my desk. Yes, that has happened...more than once.
