We’ve crafted many projects using denim as fabric. We’ve made a personalized denim banner, a market tote and my recent quilt included a whole pair of jeans. But since I had the whole back of the jeans left, I wanted to use up the scraps. I saved the denim fabric for another project but there were a bunch of un-usable thick seams left over. Then, I came up with an idea of using them up as stamps!
Here is how to make easy peasy stamps using edges and seams from denim scraps from jeans.
First, you want to find a bit of scrap with a seamed edge. Then begin to roll your scrap up along the edges very tightly.
Tap the bottom to flatten it out.
Use a pin to secure your stamp and prevent it from unrolling.
Play with the shape of the stamp. You can shape it in any way you want.
Now, stamp away using any type of ink or any type of paint you like on any paper you like. I re-used white tissue paper that came with my daughter’s birthday gift to illustrate this but you can re-use newspaper or brown craft paper to create fun wrapping paper.
Wrap your gift, put a bow on it and voila! Your wrapping paper is just as pretty as the gift inside.
