Happy Post Thanksgiving! I hope your Thanksgiving was just what you wanted it to be. I definitely ate a little too much. But what I love more than the big day are the leftovers to be enjoyed the next day. Speaking of leftovers, I enjoy crafting leftovers too.
See those rubber remnants pieces in the background? I just couldn’t throw them away after I finished cutting cut out the art stamps.
I had an inkling I could do something with the leftovers and when I saw the holiday Crate and Barrel catalog, I was immediately inspired. I love their aesthetic and I frequent their store on occasion, however, this time I was inspired to DIY instead of BUY. I used scissors to cut and shape the pieces to mimic the images shown on this page.
Then, I used my good friend, the Dremel Moto-Saw, to cut the plexiglass to the sizes I needed. Originally, I purchased it to trim my art stamps; however, I find myself using it for other things. It is so handy when tackling a variety of crafting projects that require precision cutting.
So from some crafting leftovers, I now have some fun holiday inspired stamps.
Some stamping is definitely in order. Can’t wait to get started. Let’s hear it for the crafting leftovers! Used any crafting leftovers lately?
