Quite awhile ago, there was a new kit or collection that I was absolutely stuck on. Has that ever happened to you? I was dreaming about it, itching to hit buy. But it wasn’t in the budget for the month, and I knew it would be sold out by the time I could purchase it. So, I counterfeited it! I made my own version, using my stash and tools.
There were some cute puffy stickers in the kit. Mine weren’t puffy, but oh, well, those tend to disintegrate over time, anyway, so I don’t really want them in my books. I popped these with foam tape underneath and they are still super cute.
- First I matched up some days and month stamps to punched circles from coordinating scraps. (You’ll notice the full day and month doesn’t fit–the originals used only three letter abbreviations on each sticker, and I intended to recreate that.)
2. I selectively inked up the first three letters of each day and month and heat embossed those letters in white on each circle. To save my fingers as I hit it with the heat gun, I stuck the circles on a strip of post-it tape instead of trying to hold them.
3. And, for the big finale–there is no third step!! :D That was it–super easy. All from scraps and reusable items. LOVE IT.
