Tutorial Thursday - Stamping on Soap

Hi All,
Debbie here today to show you a fun and easy way to use your La-La Land stamps to stamp on soap. 

You'll Need
La-La Land rubber stamp of choice
A bar of pale coloured soap with at least one flat surface *
Mod Podge and a brush
Tissue paper
Memento Ink Pad

* I find hand made soaps best as many commercial soaps have brand names indented into the surface

I'm a visual learner so here are some step by step pictures for you :)

Start by stamping your image onto the tissue paper - you may not need the whole image depending on the size of your soap.
Colour your image. I have used copics as they give you a vibrant end product. You may need to test your medium of choice out.
Cut out your image to fit your soap - you don't have to be too fussy as the top coat will hide some of your cutting imperfections.
Apply a layer of mod podge evenly across the surface of your soap. Lay the image onto the wet glue and make sure you press out any bubbles caught under the tissue paper. 
Apply 2 further coats of mod podge evenly over the top of the image, drying between layers. The glue will dry clear.
Once your glue is dry you can wrap a ribbon around the soap. You can then attach a tag, make a pretty gift box or.....

Decorate a small calico bag with felt die cuts using La-La Land Craft dies like this one I did earlier. 

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and it has given you some ideas for personalised gifts. 

Until Next Time - Happy Stamping

Tutorial Thursday - Parcel Card

Hi Everyone its Jennifer here and I am going
 to show you how to do a

Cut your Base 28cm x 18.5cm
Score across at 9cm, 18cm, 22.5cm and 27cm
On the 9cm score line measure 12cm across cut 2.5cm either side
 of the score and the same at 16.2cm

This is my base I did in red. See the cuts I did. Score
from one cut to the next on each end of them. 
It then makes a valley to hold your present.
Ooops just realised this picture is upside down.

Now to make the layers, I make two - this is the first. I make one
for the front and back so you have to make one going each way.
Cut 8.5cm x 18cm 2 off.
Measure 1.9cm and cut down 2.5cm measure 6.5cm and cut down 2.5cm
Then cut that bit out as shown cut the second one the same but with 
the measurements on the other end.

My first layer is green.

This is the second layer.
Cut 8cm x 17.5cm 2 off.
Measure 1.5cm and cut down 2.5cm then measure 6.6cm and
measure down 2.5cm and cut the piece out as in the picture.
Do another one the same with the measurements on the opposite end.

I used a printed paper for my second layer.

I then layered the 2 fronts and 2 backs together.

I then Layered them on the base.

I then ran doublesided tape down the 1cm tab on the base and joined it.
See the Valley where the present is going! 

OK we are now making the parcel.
Cut 12cm x 17cm.
Then score down at 4cm and 8cm
Score across at 4cm, 8cm, 12cm and 16cm.
I then cut the parcel out around the solid lines see where I have left 1cm tabs. 

So it now looks like this

I have layered my Parcel with 2 layers. 
First layer I cut 3.5cm x3.5cm 6 off them (the red ones)
Second layer 3cm x 3cm 6 off them (patterend paper)

I then Layered them.

 Then layered them on the parcel.

I then used doublesided tape to stick it together.
You can leave the top of the box untaped and you
 can pop things in like Chocolates!
This is how it sits.

Now you can  go and decorate them.
Here's an Example.

and another.

They are so much Fun!
Can't wait to see what you all do!
