My Project of the Week at The House that Stamps Built -Fabric softener sheet embellishment

Hi Everyone, Deonna here, with my Project of the Week making Fabric Softener sheet Stamped Embellishments. Want to recycle those old fabric softener sheets? Now you can. I love this technique and it's really quite easy, so let's get started.

2 Used Fabric Softener Sheets
Matte Mod Podge
Craft Sheet or Freezer paper surface
Sponge Brush
Black Ranger Archival ink Pad
Brayer (Optional)
Repeat Impression Stamps used- Flower Power Separates, 9001-L, Butterfly (lg), 9009-F, Butterfly (sm)
Coloring Media- I used Ink-Tense Pencils to color mine, but you can use anything that you have.

Step 1
Flatten your used Fabric Softener Sheets- I used a mini iron and towel. This may not be necessary if the fabric softener sheets will lay fairly flat on your surface.

Step 2
Take your Mod-Podge and spread it using your foam brush, onto your craft mat. Make sure that you make a place big enough to lay down the first Fabric Softener sheet onto. Add More Mod-Podge to the top of that layer and add the second Fabric Softener sheet.  Run a Brayer over the top to saturate with the  Fabric Softener sheets together.  **You may need to add more Mod-Podge to the top of the second sheet. Put aside and allow to completely dry.

Step 3
Once Dry, Peel Off the Mod-Podged sheets starting at a corner and working inward. After completely removed, Trim the edges with scissors if needed. 

Step 4
Using your black archival ink pad and your Repeat Impressions Stamps, Stamp directly onto the dried Fabric Softener sheets. Wait until the ink is dry.  

Step 5
 Color the images as you usually would.  **I've chosen to use my Ink-Tense Pencils to color mine.

Step 6
 Then Fussy Cut each butterfly or Flower out with scissors. Your embellishments are ready to be used.

Finished Project Using these embellishments.
