After I finished my Halloween project, I needed something to get me back to a summer mood and to do that, I decided to make these little art displays I had been meaning to make for months.
Here's what it looks like all finished, it's the little display that's holding the card:
here's what you'll need:
a metallic leafing pen, alcohol inks from Ranger Industries and a felt pad, dominoes, plastic buttons:
you'll also need:
a hot glue gun, StazOn ink pad or any permanent ink pad, a rubber stamp
First, spread the alcohol ink onto the dominoes
Next, stamp your rubber stamp image with your permanent ink pad:
use your metallic leafing pen and run it all around the dominoes, you'll end up with two dominoes that look like this:
remove the plastic shank from your plastic button (back part of button)
use your hot glue gun to glue the dominoes together, then hot glue the button on top:
and in a short time, you'll have created this:
use it for your Artist Trading Cards (ATC's). On the one below, I used a small gear instead of a button
it will display your pictures too:
It can also be used to display your greeting cards. I made the one below with scrapbook paper, use Mod Podge to adhere the paper to the domino:
I even made one with duct tape! AHA!! MY FIRST DUCT TAPE PROJECT!
check out the pretty design on this duct tape. It's so nice that they are thinking about us crafters as they're designing new duct tape, it's not just boring gray anymore.
so there you have it! a quick and easy project to display those special pictures and art. I made a dozen of these to give away to friends along with an ATC card.
I'm sharing this project at the following linky parties:
Hope you're having a great day! thanks for coming by.
