Hi!! I’m Jen from Tatertots and Jello. And I am thrilled to be here!!

I love DIY ideas for the holidays. I am so excited to share a way to make some FUN holiday projects this year — make DIY stamps using foam sheets. This is a fun project to make with your kids too!!

Here’s how to make the stamps:

Take a sheet of craft foam. I bought mine from Hobby Lobby.

Use a pen to draw a design on the foam and then cut it out withsome scissors or an x-acto knife.

Then mount the foam shape on a piece of wood. I bought some thin wood pieces. But I also used an old ruler and I glued the foam shapes on the ruler too.

To cut the ruler, just score the ruler with an x-acto knife and then cut the ruler with some heavy-duty scissors.

I used hot glue to attach the foam shapes to the wooden ruler or wood pieces.

Then go crazy making some projects!! I stamped some small paper party envelopes from Craft Corp.

I also ordered some plain wood utensils with the stamps.

But you can use the stamps for all kinds of projects — from party favors, to invitations, holiday cards and more!!

Thanks for letting me stop by!!

I love this idea! What type of ink do you use with the foam? Or paint?
