Instructions

  1. How to make a stamper. Cotton Reel "Button" Stamp - Step 1 1

    i've been getting through quite a lot of sewing cotton lately and as i hate to throw anything out i had these spools waiting to be recycled.

    i sell buttons and vintage haberdashery online and i like to decorate my packages - i had made some button stamps with foam and stuck them onto my ink pad lids but when i inked 'em up the edges of the lids printed too which annoyed me - so i needed a round base for my stamp - aha a use for my empty cotton reels at last!

  2. How to make a stamper. Cotton Reel "Button" Stamp - Step 2 2

    to make my stamp i cut out a disc of self adhesive craft foam and then made the button holes with my leather punch

  3. How to make a stamper. Cotton Reel "Button" Stamp - Step 3 3

    then cut a disc of cardboard smaller than your "button" {this is because of the hole in the spool - the first stamp didn't have this step and didn't print evenly} stick to back of your "button".

  4. How to make a stamper. Cotton Reel "Button" Stamp - Step 4 4

    stick your "button" on to your spool




  5. How to make a stamper. Cotton Reel "Button" Stamp - Step 5 5

    ink up your new "button" stamp and print away to your hearts content!

  6. How to make a stamper. Cotton Reel "Button" Stamp - Step 6 6

    i made a few so that i don't have to clean them up between colours when i'm having a stamping session, to clean them i just use a baby wipe.
