  • How to make a stamper. Diy Heart Stamps - Step 1
    Step 1

    To make these DIY heart stamps grab a wine or champagne cork. We found that champagne corks work great as the top part gives your cork stamps a nice handle to hold on to. Using an inky pen, draw a heart on what will become the bottom of your stamp. Next slice a circle around your cork a couple centimeters above the bottom. This will give your heart depth for stamping. Champagne corks have a nice ridge that you can use as a guideline for where to cut. Working with small slices, start cutting your heart shape out of your cork. Clean up the edges around your heart. Now test your DIY heart stamp to see how it’s looks when in use. Press the cork stamp into an ink pad like you would for any other stamp and then press it onto a piece of scrap paper. At this point you can always tweak your heart shape a bit more. When you are happy with your DIY heart stamp start making your Valentine’s day cards!

    We found that red and black ink worked great. For our Valentine’s day cards we stamped hearts onto white paper squares and then wrote out love messages.
