I am in love with these soft organic cotton bath mitts. Simply slide a bar of bittersweet soap inside the mitt, and experience that rich coconut lather. It seems organic cotton is softer than regular cotton. I don't believe the mitts are listed on my web shoppe, but I'm slowly in between shop design adding the new items for my faraway customers. Thank you, by the way...
You don't have to use the exact kind of paper that I use, French brown paper. I believe most of the craft stores offer a similar version, but they call it craft. Just make sure the weight is not heavy. You want a regular paper weight to pull this design off. After you purchase the paper search for a design. I sometimes visit this web site simply because the resolution is large enough to create a larger image.
Upload the image onto your computer and don't forget to save it under a name you will recognize. Print your design onto your French paper, kraft paper by selecting a 8 1/2 size template. You can choose to turn it if you wish. Print...
Allow to dry a few minutes. Most printers use vegetable ink. After the image drys, immerse the entire paper in a sink of water or simply run water over the paper. I simply lay the paper on an empty table. While still wet, sprinkle a few drops of instant coffee onto the paper. Gently rub to create an old distressed look. Kind of like finger painting...
Allow to dry completely on a flat surface. Once dried, tear the edges some to create a more distressed look. I chose a glass vessel to the label above. Old metal, wood, glass, any surface will work.
Pour regular glue over the entire back of the paper. Gently rub the glue over the surface of the paper making sure there are no bubbles. Position the paper label onto the desired vessel. Rub as to remove any bubbles. Enjoy.
I started a Shop Display page on Pinterest. Since I dabble in shop life everyday it seems appropriate to share some of my work with others. The page depicts how I mix vintage with new and display my hand made items at my apothecary shoppe.
Enjoy caring and sharing days.
