[MAKE] MEANT TO BE CALLIGRAPHY CUSTOM HOLIDAY STAMPS

PHOTOGRAPHS BY SALLY J SHIM

It is no secret that I'm a huge fan of Meant To Be Calligraphy. I had the pleasure of working with Michele on a Meant to Be Calligraphy for SHIMTOKK collaboration several months ago. Michele was a delight to work with and I was so excited when she sent me a custom holiday stamp. Our custom calligraphy stamp came in handy when I was staying up late at night during moving week wrapping presents for our out of state family members. I'm not a stamp expert but I have played around with my fair share of stamps and I have to say that these custom stamps are high quality. I could tell from the first stamp impression that these stamps are going to be used for many years to come.

I played around with silver ink on a muslin bag.

As well as silver ink on manila gift tags and wood veneer tags. You can find wood veneer sheets at your local woodworking shop or paper supply store. I cut the wood veneer and used a 1/8" hole punch to make a gift tag.

I also used a Martha Stewart glue stamp pad and glitter (Martha Stewart makes the best glitter in my opinion) to create some glitter gift tags. These gifts tags were hard to photograph but I love the way the turned out. I think custom Happy New Year or Happy 2012 stamps would be perfect for late gift givers (or early gift givers depending on how you look at it).
