Dollar Section Crafts......Bottle Top Stamp

Last night I remembered that I still had a few thank you notes to send out for gifts that we got for our little guy and guess what....I was out of thank you notes.
These days, it really isn't as easy to run out to a store and pick up anything...it has to be planned and well, I am not a great planner but I am pretty creative! So...I went to my craft closet (which is currently in the works for a makeover) and saw that I had just what I needed to make a pretty cute little card.



Our local Wal-Mart has a fun little $1 section full of stamps, blank cards and embellishments.... I like to keep things like this on hand for moments just like this.

Here's what I used to make my cards


I saw the bottle cap stamp idea on Pinterest and it was one of those moments like, "why didn't I think of this??"
Anyway...here's what you do to make one....are you ready.....it's going to blow your mind...
put.the.sticker.on.the.cap
I told you it was going to blow your mind!


Once you have spent seconds laboring to make your stamp...you are ready to start stamping.....


For another fun and super easy stamp, use the end of an eraser...I really love the way this one turned out too


Handmade cards are the best.....well, that's what my momma has always told me :)

  3. That is such a great idea! Thanks for sharing. I wish our local Walmart had a $1 section. I agree, handmade cards are so fun and really give a personal touch. It lets the person who receives it know that you cared enough to create something just for them!

  6. Brilliant Carmella!!! These turned out so cute!!! I must try this. I love how you stuck the flower to a bottle cap so you could hold it just like a stamp.

    Seriously cute!

    Hope you and the new babe are doing/feeling good. xo
