DIY Heart Stamp


Did you know you can make a stamp out of an eraser?  You can!  Here's how you do it.  Sorry I didn't take any "in process" pics - it was late & I wasn't sure if it would turn out or not {but it did!}.  It's pretty simple!  The tools above are what you need...

First you take an eraser {a large Pink Pearl one works well} & draw the outline of your image with a pen on it.  Then, using an X-acto knife {be careful!}, & cutting mat, cut around your pen drawn line.  This takes time, as you have to first go around your lines & then cut into the eraser around your image & start to cut away & pick away eraser pieces so your image will stand out.  When you've done that you can then stamp away!  

I love how homemade stamps seem to resemble wood block prints.  You can even turn them into art!  I can't wait to make more stamps!  
What kind of stamp would you like to make?

"The LORD doesn't see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart."
-1 Samuel 16:7 NLT

Stamping Love,


  1. Love it! If I made a stamp, I think I will make a mustache stamp. :)

  2. Oh, a mustache one would be perfect, Gabrielle! Great idea! Thanks for your comment! =)
