How to make DIY Personalized Tea Towels Gift Set with Pumpkin Bread by Katie Priest

Katie Priest from Three Mint Balloons here today to share how to make personalized tea towels with stamps and ColorBox Crafter’s Ink. Permanent when heat set, ColorBox Crafter’s Is perfect for creating custom stamped patterns and designs on fabric. 

To create this look, flatten a tea towel onto a flat surface.


Ink up the ColorBox Teresa Collins Wood Mount Stamp – Continents using the ColorBox Crafter’s Ink in Fire. Press the stamp onto the fabric, pressing hard to get a good impression. Remove the stamp and clean.


Continue stamping the Continents stamp across the bottom of the towel to create a border, using the inks in rainbow order: Fire, Tangelo, Sunshine, Limon, Wave, Berry, Purple.


When finished stamping, place a thin towel over the image and iron with a hot, dry iron to heat set the ink.


Sew on trim to the bottom of the towel if desired.


Spray paint a Walnut Hollow Rustic Shadowbox. Lay the towels across the inside, then add the loaf of wrapped pumpkin bread, a mug, and a bag of coffee along with other small complimentary kitchen gift items. It’s festive, happy, and rainbow!
