DIY Stamps

I've always wanted to make my own rubber stamps. I even went so far as to buy a kit several years ago, complete with a black light and goo. It didn't work for me.
 I've done some primitive printing using meat trays and wondered if I could use my punches on the styrofoam. Most of the meat and vegetable trays are too thick to pass through the jaws of the punches, but restaurant take-home boxes were thinner and held some promise. Not every punch will work. You need to coax the styrofoam into the punch but they cut easily.
 I happened to have a piece of acrylic so I taped the butterfly to it with double stick tape. Since the butterfly was a bit thin, I stacked two on top of each other.
 Now came the fun part. I loaded up the butterfly with an ink pad and stamped away randomly.
This might even make a nice coloring book type of activity. "Color in all of the openings and don't bother me until you're done. I'm busy blogging".
I also punched out my favorite scalloped circle then debossed it with a table knife.
Perfect for personalizing holiday wrapping paper. Don't you agree?

Very cool! I am reluctant to pay for stamps that will not be used much. Good solution! :)

That is such a brilliant idea, I have a lot of punches I'd like to "turn" into stamps and this seems easy enough and the results are great. Thanks for sharing. Can I Pin this?

That is sooo cool!
We're going to have a seriously everything DIY wedding (because it's fun, and to save money), and I will have to remember this! How fun would it be to have coordinating paper punches and matching stamps on things like invitations and programs!

Thanks for sharing!!!!
