Farmhouse: Stamped Linen Bags

Add a colorful handmade touch to linen drawstring bags with just a few supplies. Fill each hand stamped bag with homemade treats from the kitchen or craft table!

SUPPLIES:

DIRECTIONS:

Cut chipboard or card stock to fit inside each bag to avoid ink dying the inside of bags. Select your stamps, here we have chosen bow stamps from American Crafts. Next, select the colors of stamping ink to be applied. Slip cut board inside each bag and place stamps onto clear blocks. Stamp in a row beginning at the top of the bag to create a pattern.  Repeat for each bag. Let dry 10 minutes before removing chipboard.

Optional: Add a vintage tag and tie on a lace bow to dress it up.
