Make huge rubber stamps for mixed media projects!

I used easy to find supplies for huge rubber stamps and used them for my mixed media envelopes.



Instructions

  • How to make an envelope. Mixed Media Envelopes And Huge Rubber Stamps Diy - Step 1
    Step 1

    Standard size envelopes
    Iron
    Stencils
    Embossing folders (mine are from Spellbinders)
    Crayons
    Paintbrushes
    Americana Multi-Surface Satin Paints
    Kids sticky foam letters
    Sheets of sticky foam
    Old credit card or hotel key
    3 1/2" x 6 1/2" wood blocks (or bigger)

  • How to make an envelope. Mixed Media Envelopes And Huge Rubber Stamps Diy - Step 2
    Step 2

    For the first stamp just press on tons of sticky foam letters to a wood block
    For the next stamp cut two pieces of foam the size of the block
    Stick them both to the block, one on top of the other
    Using the protective paper, iron the foam until the edges curl
    Quickly press the foam on top of the embossing folder
    Use as much weight and pressure as possible!
    Sometimes I even stand on mine for a minute

    Step 3

    To make the envelopes:
    Slip an embossing folder into an envelope and create a rubbing
    *Like you did when you were a kid
    Scoop some paint onto an old credit card and scrape it across the envelope-
    front and back
    Stencil over everything with another color and let dry
    Coat your large rubber stamp with another color of paint
    Press on to the envelope
    *I like to wipe my large stamps with a damp rag after use to keep them in great shape

    If you want you can
    1. Zigzag around the envelope with a contrasting thread
    2. Stitch fuzzy yarn around the edge of the envelope
    3. Put a fine tip on a bottle of paint and add dimension
    4. Use glue and glitter to add some sparkle
