A Very Hero Arts Holiday + Lots of Blog Candy Winners!
What to do when you’ve got holiday crafting to do and are short on time, inspiration, or just want things done simply? It’s Hero Arts to the rescue! Today in my final holiday crafting installment, I’m back (May Flaum) to share two gift giving ideas made quick thanks to my trusty Hero Arts stamps!
First up, I have a cardboard coffee sleeve that I’ve painted red as a base. This is my favorite way to present coffee gift cards – in a fancy sleeve! Use liquid adhesive or double sided tape just along the bottom opening to create a sealed pocket for your card. Then decorate as you please. Note that the little tree stamp is embossed with green embossing powder. This particular stamp is retired – but not to worry! Hero has loads of little tree stamps to choose from!
I chose to use the Hero Arts Merry Christmas and trees stamps to really make this pop. My finishing touch? A Hero Arts felt tree. I love the texture and dimension this adds.
Speaking of texture, another favorite way to present a gift to a loved one is by decorating a simple box. I love doing this because the box will be reusable, and there are no gift wrap supplies required!
First I stenciled (using a foam blending tool and green Hero Arts ink) the top of the box, then I added my stamped sentiment, tree, and a few other bits and pieces.
What I love about this quick and easy gift wrap project is that it is so adjustable for any size, shape, or style of container! From adding many layers and a big tag to keeping things simple with just one or two attached items – this project is super fun to make and whomever receives it will adore the homemade touch as well.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the holiday stamping ideas I’ve shared with you this month, and I wish you a December full of very happy (holiday) crafting!
