Paper Casting Project




Munch on home-baked cookies while you write letters,
or create a gift of handmade stationery and matching cookies!

 
          
Materials Needed:

1 Rycraft cookie stamp or craft stamp:  #089 – Seashell,   #125 – Rose,   #223 – Basket Heart
Cotton linter - (see Rycraft Paper Casting Kit and Refill)
1 paper casting* each: 
#089 – Seashell,   #125 – Rose,   #223 – Basket Heart (see Basic Paper Casting Instructions)
Craft paper or decorative paper (optional)
Stationery, note paper, or blank greeting card


*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.   To create beautiful and unusual stationery, glue a casting (whole or cut out, white or painted) onto a piece of writing paper or note card. Note:  If you plan to paint the casting, first apply a coat of acrylic varnish and let dry thoroughly.

                   
     
2.  To give a 3-dimensional effect, cut craft paper in a square, round, rectangular or other shape (perhaps the same shape as the cut-out design) and place behind the casting to frame it (see photos of the rose stationery as well as the basket heart card).
3. Optional:  You may want to add a favorite phrase, poem, or birthday greeting to the paper prior to gluing on the casting.
