How To… Make your own stamps

The lovely Siobhan of Hello Flower wrote a great post recently about projects that she has been inspired by on Pinterest that she hadn’t got around to making yet. Her ‘Less Pinning, More Doing‘ challenge struck a chord with me, and so, I decided to give it a try!

When I first joined Pinterest I saw this easy tutorial about how to make a stamp out of a champagne cork. Within 10 minutes I had a great little homemade stamp produced by nothing more than a wine cork and a sharp knife. Unfortunately I didn’t have any ink pots left so the bunting didn’t print quite as well as I’d like, but I wanted to share it with you sooner rather than later, so I used poster paint.

    What a great idea for making cards or pretty stationery.

    Hi Amy, your stamp looks great! So simple and effective. I’ve seen a good one done with a button at the end of a cork too, though I’m not convinced that would print as well! Love your blog too, thanks for leading me to it x

    Laura: They’re wonderful! I love some of the animals. I’m definitely tempted to make a few more with rubber and see how they turn out. Thanks for the link lovely x

    Michelle: Thank you! That’s exactly what I intend to use mine for – I have a couple of pen friends who will appreciate a little bunting across the top of an envelope 🙂

    Siobhan: I’m glad you liked it – as you said, they really are simple and effective. The button is a good idea in theory, but I agree, I don’t think they would print very well. Thanks for the love! x
