#125 – Rose
Materials Needed:

1 Rycraft cookie stamp or craft stamp #125 – Rose
Cotton linter - (see Rycraft Paper Casting Kit and Refill)
1 paper casting* 
#125 – Rose  (see Basic Paper Casting Instructions)
Paper for tag

*Note:  Alternately, the casting for this project may be made from clay instead of paper (see Basic Clay Casting Instructions). The choice is yours.

Instructions:

1.  Cut the paper to the size you would like for your tag. We used a piece of marbled paper approximately  1  1/2” x  2  1/2”.
2.  We used an uncut casting but you can trim around the edge of the rose and leaf design of your casting if you prefer (as shown below).
               
3.  Varnish the top and sides of the casting to seal the surface, and let it dry thoroughly.
4.  Paint the rose and leaves using the colors of your choice.
5.  Varnish again to protect the surface.
6.  Glue the casting to the top edge of the paper tag.
