I’ve discovered a fun and inexpensive way to dress up the holiday gifts this season. Stamped Gift Picks! I came up with the idea recently while shopping for floral picks at my local craft store. I like to use them on my Christmas gifts to make them pretty, but the cost was ridiculous. After figuring the expense of the pricey floral picks, I put them all back on the shelf and vowed to make my own this year. So, that’s what I did!
To create the picks, I chose holiday images from the Styled Woodlands stamp set. To create a multi-colored image, I colored directly on the stamp with Distress Markers. A quick spritz of water from the Mini Mister activates the water based ink and allows me stamp a beautifully clean multi-colored image.
The “pick”, or stick, part was fun to make. The Woodgrain Washi gave it a fun “faux” stick appearance.
I can make tons of these….FOR PENNIES!
