Make: Geometric Foam Stamps

Thursday, October 11, 2012






I am not big into using stamps which means I never remember to buy them while at the craft store, but once in awhile I wish I had a stamp or two with a geometric pattern on hand. Well, I decided to stop kicking myself for forgetting to get some for the last 5 years and just make some myself. I used foam pieces that came as stickers and just stuck them to pieces of wood. If you don't have foam stickers or can't find any you can simply cut out your own shapes with an exacto knife and use double sided tape to adhere them to a block or almost any small hard surface. It's that simple folks. It really is. Oh and the thing I like about foam for stamping is you can use stamp ink pads or you can paint on a little acrylic paint over the surface. This is also a really simple project for even the littlest of kids to find success in mastering!

 Enjoy xx

  2. I'm not especially good at crafts, so the simplicity of this blew my mind! I'm with Yelle, I love the brick pattern. My nieces have those foam stickers and they put them on everything, I never would have thought to make my own stamps out of them! More useful than finding them in your hair after a playdate, though. ;)

    1. well, to be honest we have a surplus of foam stickers that happen to drive me a little bonkers and this was also a way of getting rid of some in a way that went beyond being stuck to random objects around the house!

  3. Your geometric shapes are beautiful! I love carving stamps myself, but this is a much easier alternative (and I do have lots of foam in my drawers)

  9. Brilliant idea I'm rather inspired! Do you think the sticky side is strong enough on its own to hold onto the blocks then? I guess wouldn't be too hard to replace if they come off..... What about cleaning off the paint?
    Great blog I'm enjoying your pics =)
