It's been a crazy busy week! With Nathan's birthday party yesterday and I suppose just "life" (not really sure!) it's been a busy week around here and I only had the chance to stamp once. It was a great "once" though as I spent the day with Marelle and Teneale which was just lovely (and rather unproductive for me, but that's okay!)
I have my AMAZINGLY talented friend Martha to thank for part of my party prep for Nathan's birthday. I LOVE all she has made with MDS and shrink art (check out her blog HERE). Martha introduced me to "shrinky dink" (that's what I always called it as a kid) that can be printed on (ink jet printer) and then backed. I wasn't as fancy as Martha just due to time but you can actually print on both sides of the papers.
So, I created a name tag for each of the boys on a "football field" circle with a helmet and then once I printed them I used the circle framelit to cut them out. I also printed out a football and hand cut them out. You have to punch a hole in the shrink art paper before you cook them. Follow the instructions for cooking and YES, believe that they will uncurl. These babies shrunk, curled, puckered....and then flattened nicely!
The tags on the brown bags were done quickly in MDS as well and just printed with the home computer. All in all, I'm really happy with how it all came together (and as Adam says, I didn't even need a whole craft room....)
