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
100% Cotton linter - (see Rycraft Cotton Linter)
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.


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. 

All projects designed and created by Sue Moore. Photographs courtesy of Paperworks, Corvallis, OR.

The Basket Heart shown below is made of clay instead of paper,
