I have an embarrasing amount of button stamps…

Hi friends! The other day I showed you how to make a quick crochet cowl. Today I am going to give you an idea for packaging them for sale or gift giving using supplies from our sponsor Papermart!

I love vintage sewing things and I have dozens of vintage button rubber stamps and to tell you the truth I will probably buy more LOL! This project will put them to good use! Look at your stamp collection and see if you can fashion something similar. Watch the video to see how I did it!

I make sheets of printed price and description tags for the items I sell a lot like watercolors,  cards, jewelry and handmade journals. It really saves time when I have to package and price my items for my shop or a craft fair. I simply use the address label feature in Open Office (that is a free word processing software similar to Microsoft Word, but MS Word has the same feature if you prefer that) and print sheets at a time. Then I can use a paper trimmer or craft punch to make my labels to slip in clear bags or attach to the pretty display tags like I did here.

Supplies:
Shipping Tags (I am using the 2 3/8″x4 3/4″ size)
Bakers Twine
Stamps (Papertrey Ink, Inkadinkado)
Ink (Dye Based-Altenew)
