D.I.Y. Rubber Stamps

25 Apr

I just know this sweetly Southern D.I.Y. tutorial found on The Sweetest Occasion is going to go to the top of your weekend to-do list! Everyone knows I love crafting, especially if it’s going to be kind on my limited college student piggy bank! This charming rubber stamp project is just that. Who wouldn’t want a mustache stamp?! Without further ado, check out the easy-to-follow tutorial below to get started. Happy crafting lovelies!

You need:

{1} Pencil
{1} X-Acto Knife
{1} Stamp Pad
{1 or 2} Pink Erasers

Start by drawing a simple picture on your eraser with pencil. If you mess up, the lead will easily rub off and you can try again.

Next, take your X-Acto knife and carefully trace around your image, cutting directly downward. You won’t need to get more than about 1/8 of an inch deep.

Then, cut in from the edges of the eraser, being careful to only cut up to where you traced the image with the knife. Work your way around in pieces, clearing away the parts that come free, until all of the excess is cut away.

Ta-da! You made a rubber stamp! Now ink it up and stamp away…
