A few weeks ago, I stumbled across this great blog, You’re So Martha. There was this great “pin” on Pinterest going around from Justine’s blog. I did some further blog stalking, blogking, and found some great DIY and crafts ideas. I thought I would give this one a shot…And, I LOVE it! Making your own stamps is so much fun, and the possibilities are endless.
Here’s the finished product!
- an eraser (or two…just in case you cut too much off)
- an Exacto knife (preferably one that you can hold like a pencil)
- some kind of pattern or template (I freehanded my “m” stencil)
- an ink pad (you could use acrylic paint, but I found this worked just fine)
some paper (card stock works great for homemade cards)
When preparing to print stencil, just butt the ends of the “m” next to each other. I like to leave a small space between them. It gives more of an organic look and feel to the chevron print!
Hope you have fun making your own stamps! Let your creativity run wild with this project!
