Quik and easy project for you and the kids during the holidays

Hi Guys

This is a project I completed for Aussie Scrap Source for their Make it Yourself Series in March.

I elected to do quick and simple stamps. This would be so easy and fun for you to do with the kids.

What you will need is;
Craft Foam [I got mine from a discount store]
Acrylic stamping block
Craft Knife
Black marker/pen
Cutting Mat
double sided adhesive tape
Glue stick
Ink pad

Begin with drawing your design onto the craft foam

Using either the craft knife and/or scissors cut out your design

Just a close up of cut out stamps and tools used LOL :)

Attache your craft foam stamp to acrylic block with a couple of small pieces of double sided tape [in strategic places :)].

To seal the craft foam stamp top prevent it soaking up too much ink seal it with the glue stick and allow it to dry :)

Ink and stamp away to your hearts content!!! :)

Cheers and happy creating :)
