Celebrate Mad Hatter Day with Blank Page Muse

Hello!  Susie on the blog today and we are celebrating Mad Hatter Day!

In the realm of Weird & Wonderful (our theme for the month!) there are none weirder or more wonderful than the characters found in the pages of Lewis Carroll's classic, Alice in WonderlandMad Hatter Day is celebrated on October 6th because the original illustration shows the character with a paper marked 10/6 in his hat (actually referring to the cost of the hat - 10 shillings and 6 pence).  The stamp from Blank Page Muse does not actually include this detail but I decided to add it when I created a shrink plastic charm for my bracelet.

Time to play...
Supplies:
Alice in Wonderland Characters Rubber Stamp Sheet Set 2
Archival ink, black
Stamping platform
Shrink plastic - I used Shrinky Dink for this project
Crop A Dile hole punch
Walnut Hollow Oil Color Pencils
Oven
Micron Pens
Traditions - Instant Gratification Bracelet and "We're All Mad Here" Focal Pendant
Split Rings

Directions:
  • Stamp image on shrink plastic with black Archival ink and allow to dry.
  • Color image on reverse side with oil colored pencils.
  • Trim out image with scissors.
  • Punch hole for hanging charm.
  • Optional:  Use Micron Pen on front of shrink plastic to add in 10/6 on hat.
  • Bake/shrink according to manufacturer's directions.


  • Add charm to bracelet with split rings.


FYI:  Here's a size comparison of the stamp and the finished charm.


Blank Page Muse actually has 2 sets of stamps with lots of the characters we know and love. Check them out and use this quick and easy idea to add a weird & wonderful character to your jewelry collection!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today!
