Make your own mini stamps using pencils with erasers!
I always wanted to try carving my own stamps and then finally bought a cutter set some time ago. I couln't wait to start my first project! And here it is! I chose to carve a raindrop and a heart because ... I like raindrops and hearts I guess. And a tiny little star seemed to be to difficult for the first try.
But there are a lot of different motifs you could try! Try triangles, dots, circles, squares, letters, numbers...

    Carve the stamp with a cutter. Start cutting along the outline and then cut horizontal to remove all the excess eraser around your motif. It's sufficient if the stamp is some millimeters high.

    Color the surface of your stamp (use a stamp pad or paint or a marker) and do some test-stamping. Now you can easily see where your stamp needs improvements. Adjust until you are pleased with the result.
