CRAFTING TIP OF THE WEEK #147- Tissue Please but not for a Sneeze...

Good Day Crafty Bloggers.
It is so good to be back.
Wondering what I mean in my post title?
Well, for this week's tip I wanted to share how you can customize your tissue paper.

I customized some of mine & it was quick and simple.Using some inks & stamps I was able to turn my boring white tissue paper into pretty works of art.
Once I stamped the entire surface of my tissue paper, I heat set the ink with my heat gun. I did not let it sit in any one spot too long as the tissue paper is quite thin. You get this really neat affect where you can see your stamped image on both sides when stamping on the white tissue paper.

With a few products from my craft stash I was able to get some really nice tissue paper which I can in turn use in different ways.

Take a look:
There's really no need to run out & buy custom printed tissue paper when you have stamps & inks in your crafting arsenal that can provide quite the range of artistic style. Think of the possibilities!

From monogramming, stamping actual names, special dates, images, etc...you too can make the most of your plain tissue paper. By the way, it works well with colored tissue paper as well. You may need darker color inks for the darker colors or  white ink.

The products I used were as follows:
  • Tissue Paper (Plain-white)
  • Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Vintage Photo & Weathered Wood)
  • Fiskars Stamp Press
  • Stamps by Hero Arts
  • Ranger Craft Sheet
Happy Labor Day!
Hope you get some time to craft and enjoy the fruits of your labor.


  1. Great ideas!! I need to get out my tissue paper and use it again. I just used it on a project in july to scrunch and glue onto a piece of chipboard to add texture, then misted. I've not stamped it before though. ~ Blessings, Tracey

    TFS my friend and have a GREAT Monday!!!

  3. That is such a cute idea!...I never thought of stamping on my tissue paper :) That would be a wonderful idea for the card sales through my Etsy! :)....and I"ll always think of you when I'm stamping it. :P


  4. Fun idea! You could really customize for any occasion! Loving that stamp! Carri ~abusybee

  5. What a fantastic idea. I love the fact that you can customize your tissue paper and have it coordinate with the card you made and/or an element from a gift you've made. I'm definitely going to try this one.

    Thanks for sharing!
