I love when I get to be crafty at work! Courtesy of author Molly Suber Thorpe of Plurabelle Calligraphy (whose book Modern Calligraphy comes out in September) I had another round of office crafting at my desk when I got to make pretty little packages!
Molly calligraphed the names of some friends, digitized her work, then had them turned into rubberstamps. Then I had the pleasure of packaging these awesome little gifts. I went to my favorite papercrafting store in NYC, Paper Presentation, which is just a few blocks from the office and found the perfect way to giftwrap these packages with just the right touch. I bought some bright ink pads, some bright blue circular seals, and notecards and envelopes, and then I found the piece de resistance! These adorable gift bags that look like looseleaf paper. Perfect for stamping the names on! In my humble opinion, I think this package came together quite well!! I’d be psyched to receive a gift like this.
Want to make some beautiful calligraphed rubberstamps of your own? Look out for Molly’s book, Modern Calligraphy, which comes out September 24. (I apologize for the long wait, but we’re working as fast as we can to get the book in tip-top shape. I promise, it’s gonna be worth the wait!) In it, you’ll learn not only how to perfect this gorgeous hand-lettered script, but you’ll get step-by-step directions to create some wonderful projects like these stamps, as well as cupcake toppers, invitations, etc… Also, check back on the blog, as I’ll post more materials from the book as we get closer to the pub date!
