I've always wanted to try making my own stamps, and the discovery of two brand-new erasers on my desk (combined with a desire to delay doing the housework) resulted in these rather humble efforts. I made two simple stamps from medium-sized rubber erasers (Staedtler brand) and some fine-tipped linocutting tools. So far, I've used the stamps and a black inkpad to make notecards, gift-tags, stickers and wrapping paper.
They were fun to make- carving stamps would make a great rainy-day activity and you could make heaps of cards and wrapping paper to use throughout the year. We always seem to be running out of those things. Have you seen the amazing handmade stamps made by Gennine? She even shares a stamp-carving tutorial on her blog- here.
Have a relaxing weekend, friends.
