Here I show you'll a nice way of stamping your writting papers and blank greeting cards with tissue paper.I have been doing this for a very long time on my writting papers because I am a snail mail writter.This is pretty easy and decorates my writting papers with what ever images I want.Most of my pen pals decorate their writting paper with stickers and they are really touched to receive my letters with little colord stampings on the papers :)
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Requirements
1) Writting Paper
2) White Tissue
3) Colored Pencils
Step 2: Tracing
Trace out some small pictures to the tissue Paper ,or you can draw your own pictures too.I have traced loads of pictures as I usually do this printing on my writing papers. Cut them out seperately as it is easier to do the printing.Out line the images (as dark as possible) with dark colored pencils.I have used the pencil...see the four out lined images on the last picture.
Step 3: Coloring
Now color the pictures as dark as possible according to how you want.Always use only dark colours if you want the stampings to show well.
If you leave out a bit here and there in the middle it is ok ,as that place would turn white.The main thing is that the out line has to be very very dark.
Step 4: Bird
This is a cute little bird ready give away her colors to my writting paper.Place the bird facing right side on the right side of the writting paper and keep drawing/scribbling on top of the wrong side of the tissue until the whole picture is covered.Watch out... the tissue paper might tear....So do it slowly.... Also the tissue must not move,so hold it tight with your fingers.Once you have completely drawn on top of the picture slowly remove the tissue away.....There you see the little birds image stamped on the writting paper... :)
Step 6: Stamp on Blank Cards
You could also stamp on blank cards too....and write a few lines of greetings or stamp your greetings...
Step 7: Done!
Hope this project will help you to decorate yours too.
