Have you created something handmade for someone very special in your life and you need just the right label. I think I found it with StoryPatches by stkr.it I decided to create this tutorial to walk anyone who might be intersted in attaching an interactive quilt label through the steps.
This is what a package of StoryPatches look like on your store shelves. You receive either one iron on or one sew in label per package. Open the package and attach the label to your project following the manufacturer’s directions.
The next step is to upload the absolutely free app onto your smart device. This is my iPhone and the stkr.it app is located along the top row of icons. Once the app is uploaded, tap on the icon and the screen will open.
After a welcome the screen opens and well, welcomes you, the next screen will look like this…Simply Tap to Scan the code on your brand new label as directed.
This is what the screen will look like while the code is being scanned.
The screen will ask you what kind of media you would like to upload. I chose audio, therefore tapped that icon.
The next screen asks if you would like to upload an existing audio recording (located in your stkr.it library) or if you would like to launch the recorder on your smart device.
Tap the record button and speak from the heart or prepare a script prior to recording and read off of that document. The choice is yours and don’t worry you get multiple chances to start over.
So you love what you recorded. Take a moment and add a caption. Next tap SAVE.Success!! You are done. Your audio recording is now linked to the code on the project. What is even better is that if down the road you decide you would like to change the message, simply go back into your library at stkr.it and opt to change the message linked to the code. Now that is cool!
If you would like to hear something I uploaded to a code based on my experience with StoryPatches and stkr.it, scan this code with your cellphone and away you go.
I would love to hear your thoughts on this fun product!
