Saving the planet, one stamp at a time..

Well, maybe not the whole planet.. maybe just my apartment. I've been coming up with a few small ideas on how to improve my space, using rubber stamps, so I decided to share them here from time to time.

First project is labeling glass jars. Ta da~

I have many many glass jars for holding many many writing/cutting instruments. But I just did these two.. leaving the rest for future projects.

This was so easy! Maybe took less than half an hour.. You just measure the diameter of the jars, cut strips of paper and stamp away with alphabet rubber stamps. I wanted to use just single strips of pretty Japanese papers but the patterns were too busy against the contents of the jars. Thus the big white strip + smaller pastel strip in the middle. The stitch lines are hand drawn, using a gray pen.

Okay, now that I look at them, I think I could've done better but I didn't want to spend too much time on them. Usually, the more I think, the more likely I won't get it done.. Might as well do it when the idea is still fresh!

What do you think? ^^
Have a good night.
