Tutorial at Papercraft Star


Today for my tutorial at Papercraft Star we are going to make your own hole reinforcement labels. This is so simple, and you can make enough for your lifetime in about 20 minutes !

What you will need are: a package of white reinforcement labels, colored ink, black ink, some fun border stamps (I used a Recollections assortment) and I used a Tim Holtz applicator.

Shmoosh the colored ink all over the page of labels. You don't have to be precise, as it looks more vintage or artistic if you have some color variation.

Take your border stamp, and stamp across one row of reinforcers. Vary the stamps all the way down the page.

How easy was that ! I have been using these for quite a while now, and I see that Tim Holtz has just come out with his own variation. Yours will look every bit as good as his, and as unique as you are. Plus, you just spent about 99 cents on 900 labels, wow !

You can use these for mini albums, tags and behind brads.

Thanks for stopping by today !
