We on the DT have been having fun playing with our new stamps, and we know you will too! Today's project is something I have seen in my mind since I first saw these stamps! I made a bread basket liner, decorated some matching candles for the table and made a little gift book of bread recipes for a certain someone who wants a bread machine!
For another booklet project and a tutorial on how to make this bread slice shape for your own book, please check back on July 6 on the ODBD blog or here, and I will post a tutorial and another project with this idea then!
For today, I know you are anxious to continue on the hop so you can sign up to win one of the free new sets Kelley is giving away! Today I have used ODBD's new set "Our Daily Bread". I stamped with Stazon Saddle Brown on pre-washed 100% cotton, stamping the verse and wheat image on one corner, and just the wheat on the other 3 corners. I sewed a hem around the edge of my fabric, which I sized to fit my own bread basket. For the candles I stamped the wheat onto tissue paper and heated my candles until the tissue melded into the wax. I tied a pretty coppery sheer ribbon around them and also added a bow to my bread basket liner. Then I made a little booklet with various recipes specifically for bread machines, as I have been experimenting and making bread for some time and wanted to pass some of my recipes along. I will add more as time goes on. The papers are BasicGrey Origins. I embossed the verse in Copper.
I hope you enjoyed my project today... now from here you should hop to the talented and sweet Sandee.
Thanks for visiting and enjoy the rest of the hop! Hope to see you back here on July 6th for the special booklet project and tutorial I have for you! For my American friends, Happy Fourth of July!!!
