For this post, I wanted to share my twist on my favorite suite from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. It is the Tranquil Textures suite. In this post, I’m sharing how to create a Sharpie Holder or Sharpie treat with products from the new Tranquil Textures suite and from the Truly Tailored stamp set. I created a similar project before which is a great masculine gift (see Lookin’ Sharp Sharpie Gifts – True Gentleman Suite). This time, I wanted to make something which makes a great gift for anyone but especially for a teacher. Teachers love Sharpies and would especially love this teacher appreciation gift.
To create the Sharpie holder, cut a piece of 10″ by 2″ strip of Tranquil Tide designer series paper. Turn the dsp horizontally and then score at 3” and 3 ¾” and fold. Punch the top with the Scallop Tag Topper punch. Use the ¾” circle punch to make a hole for the Sharpie. Then add Fast Fuse to seal it. Slip in the Sharpie and add one Removal Glue Dot near the top to hold it down. Cut a 7” piece of Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon and loop it through the top.
Stamp the Lookin’ Sharp sentiment from the Truly Tailored stamp set onto Mint Macaron or Whisper White using Tranquil Tide ink. Punch out the sentiment with the Tailored Tag Punch. Then, trim it with scissors. Punch out background of Tranquil Tide using the Tailored Tag Punch. Attach the sentiment to the background using dimensionals. Stamp the octopus in Mint Macaron from the Sea of Textures stamp set onto Whisper White card stock. Use the Under the Sea framelits to cut the octopus. Attach wiggle eyes with glue. Then, attach the octopus to the Sharpie using removable glue dots.
