 Gift box bow decoration made of cut-out paper casting from Rycraft cookie stamp #266 Sunface

Materials Needed:

1 Rycraft cookie stamp or craft stamp: #266 – Sunface
1 sheet 100% cotton linter (Rycraft Cotton Linter)
1 paper casting* - #266 – Sunface  (see 
Basic Paper Casting Instructions)
Gold craft ribbon 2 1/2"-3" wide (with wire on the edges) – enough to tie around the box and make a big bow.

Glue of your choice or hot glue
Acrylic varnish
Gold ultr-fine glitter

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


1.  When paper casting is dry, use sharp scissors or an Exacto® knife to cut out sunface design from casting. 
2.  Apply a light coat of varnish to seal the casting from moisture and let dry.
3.  Apply a 2nd coat of varnish just around the edge of the sunface where the "flames" are, and while the varnish is still wet, apply the gold glitter. Let dry.
4.  Optional: Apply a final coat of varnish to seal in the glitter.

5.  Use glue to affix casting to bow.
