Well – these look much better in person. My friend Ruth sent me a video showing how to “emboss” the Mini Muslin Bags in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog, and I decided to try it.
I used the next to smallest snowflake in “Festive Flurry.” Stamp the image with versamark ink on vellum card stock, then heat emboss. I used Pool Party, which looks great in person, but doesn’t show up as well on camera. I didn’t want silver, though. I thought that might be a little too bold. And Cherry Cobbler, Tangerine Tango or Wild Wasabi – or, in fact, any of the other colors – just seemed like they’d look a little like they may be snowflakes from an area where the nuclear reactors exploded.
After you heat the powder, place the image face down on your bag and iron until the embossing powder is melted into the bag. Make sure you have the steam turned off, and iron on a medium low setting. I used “wool,” and it worked well. That’s it! So fun – and I can’t wait to fill them. I think I’ll give these to the students I’m accompanying this year. Instead of candy, maybe I’ll fill them with DayQuil. Everyone seems to be getting sick.
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a wonderful day.
