I got this great idea originally from luvleescrappin, but then I saw cricutologist32820 using a different type of block. I think they are old wood blocks from stamps she unmounted (she had one video where she was talking about unmounting all of her stamps). Anyway, I was so excited. I had actually just unmounted (see my previous post) almost all of my Stampin' Up! stamps and really wanted to find another use for the blocks (I wasn't about to throw them away. I would make something out of them before doing that :)
Well here is the process.
|Besides the wood blocks, you are also going to need some adhesive velcro (just the scratchy side) and Inkssentials Ink Blending Foam.|
|I attached two strips of velcro to the block (I could not find any wide enough to cover with one strip, but this size was perfect when I put them side by side. Then I added on the blending foam. Wa-la, ink applicator.|
|Of course I needed a place to stores these (look, I have space for more, guess that means I am going shopping). I found this box at Walmart for $2.|
|To top everything off (literally), I made some labels using white card stock and my Xyron adhesive machine. I inked up the stickers, wrote the color, and affixed it to the top of the block.|
