Mommy and Me Stamp Camp Projects

Here are the projects that we did at stamp camp and the how to's for those of you who might be intersted in making some of the projects:

Giant Paperclip Bookmark

Supplies: Giant Paperclip (from Staples or Office Depot)
Cardstock (Only Orange, Whisper White and Basic Black)
Batty For You Stamp Set
Punches (1 1/4" Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Scallop Circle Punch)
Basic Black ink
Large Glue Dots

Stamp your chosen stamp from 'Batty For You' onto your Whisper White Cardstock and punch out with your 1 1/4" punch. Then punch out an orange circle from your Only Orange cardstock with your 1 3/8" punch. Finally punch out 2 black scallop circles. Build your "flower" starting with your scallop circle on the bottom, then your orange circle and on top is your stamped image. Adhere them together. Put a glue dot on the paperclip and adhere your scallop circles.


Supplies: Envelope
Paper Trimmer and scorer
Stampin' Around Handle
Stampin' Around Wheel Cartridge
Wheel (note the size of the wheel)
Stampin' Around Wheel Guide

Cut off the top of your envelope (about 1/8th of an inch). Score the remaining three sides at 1". (remember do not push too hard or you will tear the envelope) Turn the envelope over and do this again. Apply a strong adhesive to the flap of the envelope to ensure that it doesn't open. Now you need to stamp on your evelope with your wheel. Do this on both sides. Once the ink has dried you need to fold over on your score lines. Fold your score lines both ways. Next put your hand inside the envelope pushing it so it opens up. Push on the bottom of your bag-a-lope with your other hand until you see your "cat ears" appearing. Once you have your cat ears you need to apply adhesive to them and stick them down. Push the sides of your bag in and you are done. You are now ready to put a band on it (or you can make a topper for it like we did for our M & M bags).
