Make Your Own Hand Made Stamps

This is a piece of foam that came with a set of brads. I didn't have the heart to throw it away!!! So, I made some "HEART" stamps from it!Nothing fancy! I free-hand cut a couple of hearts out. Snipped a couple of slits and poked a clip in it to give me something to hold on to.I stamped the hearts on a piece of 6x6 cardstock.This is the layout I did using the stamped cardstock. Try some stamps of your own.There are many things around the house that can be used as stamps! Create a background and make a layout!

This is a great way to recycle and so creative. I have made stamps using the foam from foods. I especially like the clips you added to hold on to your stamps.
Very creative.

simple but effective - I like that it's not too crisp it gives a softer image

This is SO awesome! I have a lot of those brad packaging foam pieces & I've made pin cushions/thread holders & tool holders from them, but this takes the cake. Stamps! LOVE it! Thanks so much for sharing!
