DIY Embossing Pouch!

Hi Friends! In today’s video I will show you how to make an anti-static embossing pouch so you can create perfect rubber stamped images! After that we will make a card!

Video!

Embossing pouch supplies:

  • fabric scrap (thin material like cotton or muslin or old t-shirt)
  • corn starch or baby powder or Talc/talcum powder
  • rubber band

Directions: Cut a 6″ or larger square of fabric. Put 1-2 tablespoons of powder in the center of fabric. Gather up the edges and secure with a rubber band. To use simply pounce and wipe on your cardstock before stamping and heat embossing. You can also use this to de-static other things like glitter trays/funnels. It will also help in to stick to hard to stamp papers better even if you are not embossing.

Make an Embossing Pouch!

Happy Saturday! Did you know you can make an anti-static embossing pouch that tops anything you can buy for free? well you can! All you need is a scrap of thin fabric and a Tablespoon of cornstarch or cornstarch based baby powder. Cut a 5″x3″ piece of fabric, fold in half and sew up two of the sides to make a pouch. turn right-side-out, stamp a design on it if desired. Fill with corn starch and stitch closed. Easy peasy. If you don’t have a sewing machine, or if you want an quicker version simply cut a 6″ circle of fabric, place the corn starch in the center, gather up the edges of the fabric and secure with a rubber band. You are good to go! Rub this pouch on your paper before you heat emboss and it will keep the embossing powder from sticking where it shouldn’t. You can also rub a sheet of vellum with it before ink jet printing! Enjoy, you just saved $5-$10 on an embossing buddy!
