Creating Kids toys using NND Stamps!

Today we are sharing an adorable project created by Ellen! She created a set of adorable little games by taking a kids game and upgrading it so a special toy using NND images! She used the seagulls from our Gull Friends Stamp Set, the flip flops from our Flip Flop Life Stamp Set, and the shrimp from our Shrimp Cocktails Stamp Set. She also added in backgrounds using our Waves StencilTumbling Hearts Stencil and Cascading Stars Stencil! How adorable! Read on for instructions on how she created this fun play set!

Assembling the toys:

  • Photo 1 (left): Use your Crocodile Punch to put wholes in the paper. When the toy is completed, the wholes are the “goals” for the balls. I also colored the illustrations with Copic Markers as you can see on the picture.
  • Photo 2 (center): Open the toy you bought. I bought some cheap plastic one that are easy to open. I also cleaned them a little bit.
  • Photo 3 (right): Take out the paper piece and replace them with your little piece of art. I used a strong tape runner to stick it to the bottom of the toy.

    1. I don't know the name, but you have to put the little balls in the little cirkles (it's a game to play with your nerves haha).
