The manager was kind enough to show me how to heat emboss. My husband and I practiced later that week. It really is pretty simple.
- Wet your stamp with the ink pad.
- Stamp the item.
- Pour embossing powder over the item.
- Shake off excess powder.
- Apply heat from heat gun to powder.
- Admire your crafty self!
My first adventure in embossing was our candy buffet. A bride gave me her 40 leftover white chinese boxes. I also had about some glassine envelopes that were sold along with the candy buffet. Since that wasn’t enough containers, I bought 40 petite red chinese boxes.
Heat Embossed chinese cartons
Since I did red on red, it doesn’t photograph as well but looks cool in person.
