Make your own stamp

April 15, 2013

The other day Pim and I made a stamp together. He made the design, and I helped him cut it out!

Making a stamp is not very difficult. First, you need an eraser. (It can be a cheap one, I like to use these from HEMA.) Mark the outline of the eraser on a piece of paper, and draw your design inside using a soft pencil. Don’t be too detailed! Then, transfer the design on the eraser by rubbing it face down against the surface. As a final step, use a set of Lino Cutting Tools (I use these ) to cut out the design. Presto!

I also make stamps to make labels for jams, etc. It’s fun! If you decide to give it a try, please do share the results with us!
