DIY Christmas foam stamp
One can never have too many blank notecards, so why not give the gift of some handmade ones 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.
