Finished Project 1

Step One: Make a few stamps or stencils - Anything goes here!

Step Two: Pour Out the color you want to use and start stenciling away on your first sheet of newsprint. We used some wintery snowflakes on this one.

Stencil method

Rubbing Plates can be used as stamps too, just brayer on your ink and then use a clean brayer on the back after you position it to make sure you get a good print.

Rubbing Plate method

Rubbing Plate example

We made a stamp using a Speedy Cut Block, it reminds us of a flower or a peppermint candy depending on the color you use to print.

Lastly, we cut out some random squiggles and printed them in a festive green, alternating the block helped change up the design.

Step Two-Point-Five: Once it dries you can give it a quick iron if you want, this is to smooth out the paper more than anything, wash fastness isn't important for wrapping paper.

Step Three: Wrap up your gift and present it to the lucky recipient!
