LWD Design Team Showcase: Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Cling Mounted Stamps - Urban Tapestry and Tsukineko - StazOn Pad - Jet Black.

Back again with a LWD Design Team post.  This project is a cute little favor you can make up for your Easter table or give out as a "Welcome Spring" gift.  It's fast and easy to make and so inexpensive, you can make them for all your friends and family.  I used two staples available from Lone Wolf Designs:
I love this set!   Tim Holtz is my favorite designer and this bird is so spring-y!  

By using StazOn ink on this project, you get a water proof image...perfect for using with Mod Podge.  


  • Peat Pots (Get them at Wal-Mart.  12 for $1.59)
  • 6" Skewer stick 
  • 2.5" x 3" piece of cardstock
  • 23" cording or ribbon
  • hot glue
  • Acrylic paint  (I used a dusty pink color--Delta Indiana Rose)
  • Bird stamp from Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Cling Mounted Stamps - Urban Tapestry
  • Tsukineko - StazOn Pad - Jet Black.
  • Tissue paper
  • Mod Podge
  • Spanish Moss
  • Hot glue gun, paint brush, scissors, sentiment stamp, hole punch


  • Paint the outside, bottom and inside lip of the peat pot and the skewer stick with acrylic paint.  Put on only one want a shabby look.  Let dry.
  • Using StazOn ink, stamp bird on tissue paper.  Cut out design as close to the stamped image as possible.
  • Once pot is dry, add a good coat of Mod Podge to the pot where the image is to be placed.  I used my finger to apply the MP but you could use a foam brush.  Carefully press on the tissue paper image over the applied Mod Podge and GENTLY go over the image with more Mod Podge.  Then cover the entire pot with a coat of Mod Podge.  Let dry.
  • Attach skewer to pot with hot glue
  • To create the banner, cut in the "vee" on one edge and punch holes in the other.  Stamp cardstock with sentiment and place banner on skewer.
  • Tie on cording and fill with Spanish moss.  

Here I also made a favor specifically for Easter.  Fill these favors with candy, decorative eggs or a little gift.
