Butterfly embossed gift tag


Embossing is a great way to make impressive stamps and there are lots of things you can make from them. You could try a simple greeting card or why not try turning your creations into gift tags which will make any present feel special.

The embossing powder will need to be heated by a heat gun which is very hot, so an adult should help with this part.

If you'd really like to make fancy gift tags but embossing feels too difficult, you could try potato printing instead and you could even make your own wrapping paper.

Time: 20 minutes

Materials
Card
Paper
Rubber Stamp
Embossing powder
Embossing glue pad (stamper ink glue)
Antic static pad or small paintbrush
Heatgun
Ribbon
Hole punch

Method
Cut a piece of card to the size you want for your gift tag.
Rub it over with an antic static pad to stop the powder from sticking to places other than where you stamp. Alternatively you can use a small paintbrush to sweep away loose powder after you have stamped.
Place your rubber stamp on a table, pattern side up.

There are lots of different designs and sizes of rubber stamps that you can buy


Take your embossing glue pad and press it onto the stamp.
Place your gift tag on a piece of paper which has been folded and reopened.
Now stamp your gift tag.
Sprinkle lots of embossing powder over the gift tag.
Lift up the gift tag and tip the powder onto the paper below. The crease will allow you to easily tip the excess contents back into the pot.

Using a heat gun (adults only), heat the embossing powder until it melts together.
Puncture a hole with the hold punch.
Thread a piece of ribbon through to tie your gift tag to the present.

Why not do a few prints at the same time and you could try different colours of embossing powder
