Here’s a fun idea for sending a message to someone you love… stamp it. I found these little wooden spools at the craft store and wanted to come up with a clever use for them. And since Valentine’s Day is coming up, I thought this would be a unique keepsake. Writing a letter that needs to be unraveled to be read. This could work for any occasion really….birthdays, just because, etc.
What do I need? Materials: Fabric or ribbon (length will vary depending on length of message), wooden spool (from craft store or recycled), rubber letter stamps, stamp pad, craft glue
How do I make it? Steps: 1. Cut a long strip of fabric about 1.5 wide and at least one yard long depending on how long you want your letter to be. You can also use ribbon as oppose to fabric (cotton webbing works great).
2. Leave a couple of inches on the end of the fabric strip blank and then begin stamping your message.
3. Once message is complete, glue the start of the message (the area that you left blank at the beginning) to the spool using craft glue. Ravel your message around the spool. Place in a decorative box and you are all set.
