Stamped and Colored Gift Box


Last week, we celebrated my Nana’s 92nd birthday! I bought her a Blessed Mother statue for her nightstand collection of religious figures, and after looking at the blank white box it came in, I decided to forgo the wrapping paper!

I used these chunky graphic rubber stamps that Mary from HotPotatoes.com sent me earlier this year. She knew exactly the kind I would like! From this Carved Rose to the shiny, happy Solid Sol Picado and several others. Visit HotPotatoes.com to see all of Mary’s wonderful stamps!

The coolest part is that I used my

Crafty Chica® Tango Permanent Fabric Markers™ on the stamps, for printing AND coloring.
Check out how it turned out! Granted, I thought of the idea 40-minutes before we had to leave to the party, so it is kind of a rush job, but with proper planing and detailing, this could be a stylish way to rev up a plain cardboard gift box. And the Earth Day around the corner, it is good because no extra paper is involved.


Happy Birthday, Nana!
