Make your own fun and funky embellishments from a surprising material!

Here’s an interesting, and inexpensive way to make pressed paper embellishments for your craft projects.

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:

To begin, tear off squares of of toilet tissue. Lay them in stacks of 10 squares.

Lay one of your rubber stamps face up, and spritz with water. Lay a stack 10 squares on top
of your stamp. Spray the stack of papers with water until you can begin to see the stamp show through from underneath.

Gently use your finger to press and smooth the wet paper onto the stamp, wetting more as needed. You should be able to see
all the details of you stamp through the paper–keep pressing and smoothing until you can.

When you can easily see the stamp, begin gently blotting the excess water from the paper with your paper towel.

Carefully turn your stamp over, and gently pull the stamp from the paper to reveal the molded image.

Set on a drying rack, or a clean sheet of paper to dry. Let dry thoroughly.

Use scissors to cut off extra paper around your paper embellishment, or gently tear to create a rough edge.

Experiment adding color to your embellishments while the paper is still wet on the stamp with watercolor paints, or markers. When they are dry, enhance them
with markers, colored pencils, glitter, etc. How could you use pressed paper embellishments in your crafting, and scrapbook projects?

Happy crafting!
