Welcome to another day of Sister Stamps Release #12! Today I'm featuring Akira and I wanted to do something like a wind chime or ornament and this is what I came up with. I used a toilet paper roll as my base. I measured and cut my washi paper to cover the toilet paper roll. Then I stamped the image on the washi with black StazOn ink. I adhered the washi to the roll using a good glue stick. I found that glue sticks give even coverage when adhering larger pieces of washi.
I stamped, colored and cut out Akira and his kite and adhered them to the roll using pop dots. A lot of pop dots were needed to adhere the images to the curved surface. By stamping the image to the washi, I didn't have to worry about cutting out the kite string.
To hang this, I punched two holes at the top of the roll and ran some gold cording through. At the same time I tied blue satin ribbon to the gold cording on both sides and ran it through the inside of the roll. This allows it to dangle from the bottom of the roll. Then I tied gold bells to the ends of the ribbon.
These would be great to hang from a tree for Boy's Day or at Christmas or just in a boy's room for fun. You can even make them without the blue ribbon and bells and it would still look great!
Here's a close-up of the kite.
This stamp will be available on April 1 and retail outlets are listed on the Sister Stamps blog.
