Here is an easy little project we put together last week. I was introduced to hand carved stamps a few years ago and they are so great for personalizing something for a party last minute. This project uses a basic heart but you could do any shape or pattern. I like to keep the stamp blocks around for when I’m throwing something together at the last minute but still want some customized details.
Material Needed: Paper cup, inkpad, stamp rubber, stamp carving set
Step 1: Make a heart pattern to trace. We used a heart shaped paper punch.
Step 2: Place the heart on the rubber and trace it.
Step 3. Using the small stamp carving tool carefully carve around the heart.
Step 4. When you are satisfied with the shape, use the larger tool to carve away the rest of the stamp. We ended up cutting off the rest of the stamp because it made it easier to stamp on the cup.
Step 5. Ink up and stamp away!
