5 Stamp Makeover

Stamp MakeoverWhat happens if you're not so happy with your stamp? There is no need to discard it. You can still use it to make other things, such as artsy cards. With a bit of help from colored pens or pencils, no one will know that your base stamp isn't that lovely.

6 Wood Grain

Wood GrainA wood grain rubber stamp is actually an easy carving project for a beginner. With such a seemingly complex design, you would think that it's hard to do, right? But you will simply be carving the wood grains using a slim carving tool and that's it. It's okay to make mistakes; wood grain doesn't really follow a standard pattern.

7 Wood Mounts

Wood MountsThis particular DIY gives you an idea on how to finish your DIY rubber stamp. Mine still have no backs because I have too many stamps to worry about those details. But a great idea is to use wooden building blocks. Simply superglue your rubber stamp to the wood block, let dry, and that's it.
