Valentine's Day isn't my favorite holiday, but I am a fan of the heart shape. . . So I whipped a craft that can either be for Valentine's Day or those who just like a good heart - a cute little wooden handled heart stamp -
- 2 inch wooden disks
- wooden dowel ends
- a sheet of craft foam
- wood glue
- white glue (or sticker maker)
- red and/or pink paint
- paint brush
- stamp pad
- blank note cards
(everything was picked up at my local craft store)
Once the paint has dried it is time to attach the two pieces of your handle - a little dap of wood glue will do you. While your glue is drying we can cut what will end being the stamp part of your stamp. This part is super easy, using your scissors just freehand cut hearts out of your craft foam. Just make sure your hearts are smaller than your wooden disks.
Now get to stamping!
Note: don't skimp on super cheap ink, it does make a difference (see above)
