This is a great way to give the gift of some handmade ones cards with your own design this Christmas? Turn your daydream doodles into a stamp and you can create your own stationery, gift wrap, cards…
- A thin foam sheet, from craft stores
- A drawing. Something simple and symmetrical is ideal as you can then line it up and stamp to create a larger repetitive pattern.
- A cutting mat (or chopping board)
- A scalpel
- Spray adhesive
- An acrylic block, from craft stores
Cut out your design on paper and use it as a stencil to cut around on the foam piece. Arrange your foam cut-outs in the correct pattern but face down.
Spray glue the acrylic block and wait until tacky.
Gently place on top of the foam cut-outs and press over the block evenly to ensure all pieces stick firmly.
Leave to dry a little while and you’re ready to use!
What we did:
We cut plain blank cards in half with a scalpel and stamped the design on the top centre. We used various inks in a similar colourway, then packaged up six cards into a glassine bag and tied together as a gift. Great for neighbours, teachers or friends in your mother’s group.
