Embossed Journaling Strips

Our fabulous Guest Designer, Becky Rico, prepared these instructions and samples for you. Thanks Becky!
Embossed Journaling Strips
Here is a fun way to add a little texture to your journaling.

Needed supplies:
Strips of cardstock (dark with a white core or a light color work best)
Ink
Sandpaper or emery board
Embossing label maker (I’ve recently seen these with changeable font wheels)

DIRECTIONS:
1) Cut cardstock into strips to fit your label maker. (Mine take 3/8” strips)
2) Feed your strip into the label maker as you would the label maker tape by clicking the advance. Feed through until you have a about a 1/2 inch of the strip showing.


3) Type in your message and remove your strip from the label maker.


4) If you used a dark cardstock with a white core use the sandpaper or emery board to reveal your message. If you used a lighter colored cardstock gently ink the embossed area to expose the message.



5) Use your journaling strip on a card or on a scrapbook page! How easy is that?!
