Stamping on Metal

Love a sale, especially when working with someone else's money!
Dollar General again had a ton of spring painted pails on sale normally $1 and 75% off ~ making them 25 cents each!

Toying with some different wedding table favor ideas and this certainly fits the brides price range!
Spray painted a few tins, with various Krylon. Allowed to dry.
Stamped with metal stamp ink (works better than staz-on) using single initial stamp from Close to My Heart "Baroque Alphabet", heat set as directed on ink, then added a new ribbon and the Bride loves it!
You could certainly use any color paint and themed stamp you desire to have a customized pail!

Simple Father's Day Gift

The keyring was a big success with the preschool class and the grown ups! Easy to personalize for Grandpa, Dad, special Uncle or Father's Day! Add a single person or several!

Cut a thick piece of chipboard the size you want, cut a photo and a leftover paper the same- print your Dad (or other) in any font you like.

Punch a hole in all 3. Coat 1 side of chipboard with modge podge and immediately add the paper. Smooth out with sponge and allow to dry. Turn chipboard over and do same with photo. Allow to dry and add your key chain or key ring.
Have fun!

Valentine Kiss Card

This imitation "Hershey's Kiss Card" is super easy. Cut a template for your kiss, stamp a greeting and a heart, adhere it - add a greeting inside, and then wrap in household aluminum foil. If you have candy kisses and keep the string you could add it in your card otherwise cut a thin strip. You could certainly stamp on your strip also.
