In hindsight, this tutorial was probably inspired by this simple image from Giver's Log (percolating in the recesses of my mind for the past year):
-Empty spool of thread
-Paper (Can even be repurposed. I used packing paper - the kind that glassware is packed in - and found the crinkles just added to the interest.)
Find a good work surface - one that won't be ruined if you get a little paint on it. Pour paint into an old plastic lid. Dip the spool and stamp away!
You can also make coordinating gift labels! I took a couple of name tags and made them into fancy labels for mailing gifts. Super easy.
I used white packing paper and silver paint, but you don't need me to tell you the variations are endless! I'd love to see how this comes out with white paint on a dark paper. Also, if you have rubber stamps and a stamp pad, break them out and have at it!
