Tutorial Tuesday - Your charming smile - A piece of hanging art by Donna Gray

This is a lovely vintage stamp and really easy to use To finish I used a small circle punch to chop the notches to wind my butchers twine around. All of the wonderful stamps can be found here so grab a cup of coffee and g
