Instant Stamps

In my ever-present quest for new ways to save money whilst crafting (by re-using, recycling and re-purposing items around the house)...  

here is my latest instalment featuring QUICK and EASY ways to create stamps to add interest to your paper craft projects

Heavy, high-density Styrofoam packaging is a great material to use.
Today I am using a Styrofoam-type material that was used  to protect the edges of a glass cutting plate.

The subject - 1 rectangle of packing material

puncturing with a pencil and pulling with a pencil

using the hollow plastic tube that protects art brushes

puncturing with tip of pencil

This is my favourite!

I also found that this material holds the ink REALLY well and I can cover an entire surface with one application of ink
it cleans up very easily.  Of course you can cut the rectangle in half and have more surfaces to play with.

Use this easy and virtually mess-free technique to create backgrounds and borders. 


It's nice to get feedback.
