You are Invited to the Beauty for Ashes Workshop




"He will give a crown of beauty for ashes,

a joyous blessing instead of mourning,
festive praise instead of despair."  Isaiah 61:3





It's the Easter season, a time of renewal and rebirth!   After the earth sleeps at winter time, spring bursts forth with the bright sunshine and the freshness of blooms all around.  So it is with our soul which needs refreshment every so often.


We have all we need to create something beautiful everyday.  Even the muddy places in our hearts can be rich soil for God to plant lush flowers in!   Grab some soul food by surrounding yourself with all the colors of spring and express yourself through art!


Let this workshop help you discover some easy techniques that will turn ordinary materials like scrap cloth, paper, buttons and beads into cherished art pieces.  The mixed media method will help you create vibrant textured images of nature. 




The Beauty for Ashes Workshop facilitator will be Papemelroti owner and artist Patricia "Patsy" Alejandro Paterno.


Patsy has been in the arts and crafts business since she was in her teens. Trained as an interior designer, she has been behind most of Papemelroti's product lines and the shop's development since it's inception.


When she isn't busy managing the family chain of gift shops, she can often be found painting at their home's pocket garden.

8 Ways to Use Rubber Stamps





We're excited to share with you our newest rubber stamp sets! They're so much fun to use and there are a variety of ways you can make the most of them!


This list is by no means exhaustive but they're all quite practical and can jumpstart other projects using the same techniques.


 > > > > > > > STATIONERY SET

All you need:
Black stamp pad ink (or color of choice)
Blank paper and envelope
Papemelroti Nautical Stamp Set    SEE WHOLE SET

How to make:
1. Choose which rubber stamp design you want to place on to the paper.
2. Practice makes perfect!  Try stamping the design on scratch paper first to see how to make a perfect stamp.
3. To ensure a neatly registered design, press the stamp flatly and firmly on to the stamp pad without getting ink on the outer edges and then stamp on to the paper.
4.  Do the same for the envelopes.

Note: Don't stick to one design only!  That's what sets are for!  You may also want to use an assortment of ink colors to create more interesting stationery.




> > > > > > >  NOTEBOOK COVER

All you need:
Gold stamp pad ink (or color of choice)
Letter transfer sets (or a good brush pen for hand lettering)
Papemelroti Scrapbooking Stamp Set    SEE WHOLE SET

How to make:
1. Choose which rubber stamp design you like best to use as the text border.
2. Practice makes perfect!  Try stamping the design on scratch paper first to see how to make a perfect stamp.  Take note of how to position the stamp so it lands on the middle of the notebook cover.
3. To ensure a neatly registered design, press the stamp flatly and firmly on to the stamp pad without getting ink on the outer edges and then stamp on to the paper.
4.  Once you have the border design on the notebook cover and it is has had time to dry, you can already put the letters using the transfer set or use some nice calligraphy to put your desired text.

Note: This design is also nice for monograms!




 > > > > > > >  GIFT TAGS

All you need:
White stamp pad ink (or any light color of choice)
White, slim marker pen
Scissors
Thick black paper (construction paper / cartolina)
Hole puncher
Papemelroti Scrapbooking Stamp Set    SEE WHOLE SET
Papemelroti Jute String (or yarn)

How to make:
1. Choose which rubber stamp design you like best to use as the border design.
2. Practice makes perfect!  Try stamping the design on scratch paper first to see how to make a perfect stamp.  Take note of how to position the stamp so it lands on the middle of the paper.
3. To ensure a neatly registered design, press the stamp flatly and firmly on to the stamp pad without getting ink on the outer edges and then stamp on to the paper.
4.  Once you have the border design on the paper, you can now cut around it to make the gift tag.
5.  Punch a hole at the side and insert the jute string or yarn into the punched hole to attach to the gift box.

Note: This technique can be used as a luggage tag.  Instead of string or yarn, you can use a ribbon.  And then, just put in the name, details and laminate!

 > > > > > > >  GIFT WRAPPING PAPER

All you need:
Gold stamp pad ink (or color of choice)
Any large sheet of plain colored paper
Papemelroti Scrapbooking Stamp Set    SEE WHOLE SET

How to make:
1. Choose which rubber stamp design you like best to use as the pattern design.
2. Practice makes perfect!  Try stamping the design on scratch paper first to see how to make a perfect stamp.  Take note of how to position the stamp so it lands on the middle of the notebook cover.
3. To ensure a neatly registered design, press the stamp flatly and firmly on to the stamp pad without getting ink on the outer edges and then stamp on to the paper.
4.  Now is the fun part!  Lay out your paper sheet on a large surface and then start stamping away!  We suggest that the space between each stamp impression remains largely similar to give the effect of a printed design.  You may position the stamps facing the same direction or in different angles... it's all up to you!

Note: You may also use the embossing technique for this project.  See how



 > > > > > > >  JEWELRY

All you need:
White stamp pad ink (or any light color of choice)
Chain (must be long enough to wear without needing to be unclasped)
Little Screws (with loops big enough for chain to pass through)
4 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoon water
Oven
Long nose pliers
Paintbrush
Acrylic Paint (grey paint is nice with white stamp pad ink)
Papemelroti Scrapbooking Stamp Set    SEE WHOLE SET
Clear varnish

How to make:
1.  Choose which rubber stamp design you like best to use as the jewelry design.  Take note that a smaller design will be more wearable as jewelry but it will be more challenging in getting all the details visible on the clay.
2.  Practice makes perfect!  Try stamping the design on different clay pieces (without ink) first to experiment and see how much force you need to apply to get the desired depth.  
3.  Mix the flour, salt and water for 2 minutes to make it into clay.  
4. Shape the clay into a small ball and then flatten into a shape that is slightly bigger than the rubber stamp design.
5.  Insert the 2 screws to the sides of the clay piece and leave them there (they'll be where you'll latch the chain onto later).
6.  Now it's time to press the rubber stamp flatly and firmly on to the stamp pad without getting ink on the outer edges and then stamp onto the clay.
7.  Once you have design on the clay, you can now bake in a 275°F or 135°C oven for 1 hour.
8.  After the clay hardens, you can paint the clay.  Carefully paint around the stamp design and only on the raised edges so the design can still be easily seen.
6.  Once the paint is dry, seal it by brushing on the varnish.
7.  Thread the chain through the screw loops and attach together with the pliers.  Now you have some elegant jewelry!

Note: You can also use this technique to make a keychain.  Use the same procedure but use a shorter chain.  Add some keyring loops so you can easily add the keys!






 > > > > > > >  BOOKPLATE LABELS

All you need:
Black stamp pad ink (or color of choice)
Sticker Paper
Scissors
Ruler
Pencil
Coloring materials (crayons, colored pencils, markers etc.)
Papemelroti Nautical Stamp Set    SEE WHOLE SET

How to make:
1.  Using your pencil and ruler, draw rectangle shapes for your bookplates.
2.  Cut out and write "This book belongs to" or "From the library of" on the top portion.
3.  Choose which rubber stamp design you like best to use as the bookplate design.
4. Practice makes perfect!  Try stamping the design on scratch paper first to see how to make a perfect stamp.  Take note of how to position the stamp so it lands on the middle of where you want to put it.
5. To ensure a neatly registered design, press the stamp flatly and firmly on to the stamp pad without getting ink on the outer edges and then stamp on to the paper.
6.  Once your design is on the bookplate, you can now color the stamp to make it more beautiful.

Note: This is a handy way to label everything (not just books)!





 > > > > > > >  BOOKMARK

All you need:
Black construction paper or cartolina
String or ribbon
Scissors
Ruler
Pencil
Hole puncher
Markers
Papemelroti Nautical Stamp Set    SEE WHOLE SET

How to make:

2.  Cut out and punch a hole at the top.
3.  Choose which rubber stamp design you like best.
4.  Flip the rubber stamp over to see the rubber ridges. Using your markers, color the underside rubber ridges on the stamp.  Use as many colors as you like.
5.  Press the stamp on to the bookmark firmly so as to transfer the colors from the markers on the rubber stamp to the paper.
6.  Attach the string / ribbon to complete the bookmark.


Note: Use this technique on any color of paper.





 > > > > > > >  HANKY

All you need:
Plain fabric with hemmed sides
Water-based Fabric Paint
Brayer (paintbrush or foam can work too)
Papemelroti Scrapbooking Stamp Set    SEE WHOLE SET

How to make:
1.  Iron your fabric so it's easy to work with.
3.  Choose which rubber stamp design you like best to use.  Large stamps and simple designs work best.  Decide on the pattern you wish to make using the stamp.
4.  Apply the paint using a brayer (or paintbrush or foam) on to the bottom of the rubber stamp (to the ridges of the rubber).
5.  Practice makes perfect!  Try stamping the design on fabric scraps first to see how to make a perfect stamp.  Take note of how to position the stamp so it lands on the middle of where you want to put it.
6. To ensure a neatly registered design, press the stamp flatly and firmly on to the stamp pad without getting ink on the outer edges and then stamp on to the fabric.
7.  Stamp away on the fabric!  Let dry.



Note: Use this method on kitchen towels, placemats, etc.  Nice to make matching home items!



Ensure that all of your tools are thoroughly wiped cleaned and stored properly for future use.


All of these projects made use of only 2 of the new Papemelroti rubber stamp sets available for shipping worldwide.

Off the Wall

SOURCE: DEVI DE VEYRA


Introducing Robert Alejandro's new wallpaper designs!  Produced by WallMasters Philippines, these designs were launched at the Philippine International Furniture Show earlier this month.


SOURCE: DEVI DE VEYRA


Together with other local artists, Robert shares his love for Filipiniana themes.  Pictured above is the Mango Tree with a couple dressed in traditional garb resting under it's shade.


Read more about the new product line here:




Full Steam Ahead

A post shared by Robert Alejandro (@robert_alejandro) on




Are you familiar with "steampunk"?


The Cambridge Dictionary describes steampunk as "books or movies about an imagined time when machines used steam for power rather than modern engines and methods or a style of fashion based on this."





The phrase was coined in 1987 but the style is influenced by 19th century industrial steam-powered machinery.


We're excited to feature some of Robert Alejandro's Steampunk designs for Papemelroti here!





Robert says, "When I draw these “steampunk” series, I think of all the young people forging ahead into this world full of new ideas, idealism and adventure. I think of the students / kids I will have at my summer art workshop and I am blessed to have this opportunity to touch their life with creativity and imagination."  






Now you can see Robert's work printed on 100% recycled paper at Papemelroti shops and online









You can also see Robert's designs on wallpaper!

Free Family Game




How many times have we had family gatherings where everyone is sitting in the same place but have all of our noses buried in a gadget?  We may be letting precious bonding time get away by virtually ignoring each other.  So let's do something to while away the time in a creative way and build treasured memories!


Instead of spending at least P1.000 on a new board game, why not make one yourself?  Doing the project together will also be a crafty challenge that everyone can participate in!





The game will have you coming up with some wacky looking faces.  You don't have to stick to the eyes, noses and ears we have made, you can add your own!


Once you've played this game, you can also print another set of face parts and use these to decorate your face!



Materials:



Big metal can - We used a can of coffee with a space for 6.5 inch height x 19 inch width label.

Thin magnet sheets or little magnet pieces

Glue gun - or white glue should be ok.

Scissors

Colorful paper - cartolina is big enough to cover the can - and you can choose whichever colors you like.  You can also download the background of the can we made here

White Marker - if you don't have this, you can just use colorful paper to delineate the face borders.

Foam or Cardboard - If you have magnet sheets on hand, you can paste the face parts on to the magnet sheets themselves so you don't have to get the foam/cardboard.

Face Parts - Download the face parts here



Instructions:



Step 1.
Start with a clean can.  Measure the size of the surface so you know how much paper you need to cut.

Step 2.
Paste the colorful paper onto your can using white glue or the glue gun.


Step 3.
Cut out small ovals of different colors and paste to the sides of the labels and then outline with white marker.  You can leave out the outlines if you can't find the white markers.


Step 4.
Download the face parts file and print out.


Step 5.
Cut out the face parts and attach to foam or cardboard to make them sturdier.  If you have magnet sheets, attach them directly on to the sheets and then neatly cut around the face parts to form the game pieces.


Step 6.
Attach the face parts to small magnets if magnet sheets are not available.  Now you are ready to play!



Let's Play!



Materials:

Can
Face parts
Blindfolds


Game Mechanics:


  1. Put all the game parts on top of the can.  People can look at the parts they like and try to memorise where they're at.

  2. Everybody blindfold themselves.  No cheating.



  3. Everyone puts their hand on the can and turn it around clockwise for a duration of 5 seconds.  Take care not to let the parts fall off at the top.  If they fall, it will be part of the game to hunt for them!

  4. Once the can stops, people can get the face parts they want and stick on to the can!

  5. When everyone is done, you can all remove your blindfolds and see what happened to the face you made! 



You don't have to do this game all together as well.  You can do it one at a time.  Be sure to take photos of the nicest faces done!


Please do let us know if you liked this project and leave us comments on what you want us to feature next!
