One of my favourite brands, without a doubt, is The English Stamp Company. They create the most beautiful bespoke stamps that you can use for an array of creative projects.
I have used their products for years but it wasn’t until recently when I decided to design my own wrapping paper for Christmas that I completely emptied out their stock room and now own nearly every stamp on their website. Whoops!
Our very old cork coasters that we bought in Paris over a hundred years ago have most definitely had their day and are looking a bit withered from years of tea abuse and having a 7 month old chew them as a teething toy. So I decided to create my own (I’ll be sure to keep them out the way of infant destroyers!)
They were so much fun and so simple to make. I would definitely recommend giving them a go. They would make such lovely gifts for people, especially avid tea drinkers!
Here’s how I did it…
Take your paint brush and dip it into some watered down black paint.
Using your index finger tap the brush lightly over the coaster to create a paint-splattered effect.
Wrap accordingly and give as a gift or keep for yourself and boil that kettle!
