Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peak-Vintage Spices Project 2

For Whimsical Wednesdays, please scroll down 2 posts. But don’t hurry! Read these posts first!!

I had such fun creating this this set; it is so perfect for any kind of decor for the kitchen. For this project, I recovered part of a recipe box as a gift.

The box was only $1.50 at Michaels! So perfect for recovering. I was going to do the whole thing but I realized that the bottom went pretty well with the paper I chose and it does take a long time to cover the whole thing.

The tag was easy to make, I stamped the bundled herbs over the whole background of the tag in the same colour ink as the paper. I stamped the hot peppers on the tag then again on white CS, coloured them, cut them out and popped them up on the tag. I used simple red cotton string to tie it on. I haven’t yet but I will add a sealer to the box lid before giving it away. Hope you enjoyed my projects!

This set will be available June 1st. The link on Lori’s blog, Clearly iStamp will be active then. Be sure to visit the rest of the DT who are previewing this set today.
