DIY Rubber Stamp | The Crafted Life
Making your own rubber stamp is easier than you might think. With only a few basic lines you can create a simple and unique pattern within 10 minutes!


Cut your carving block to the ideal size. The materials is soft enough to do with an X-Acto knife or pair of scissors.


Draw on your patten and color in the area you was to remove. The area that it left will be the pattern that shows up when you stamp.

    I have wanted to try this, but was afraid that I wouldn’t like something that wasn’t carved with perfectly straight lines. I think I’m over that now seeing your stamp!
