    Crafting Green

    Making your own stash of stampers

    Rate this Entry
    Hi everybody!

    You know all those packages and buckets they have in the store of foam shapes, characters, and letters...? Well, you can make stamps out of them by gluing them to pop bottle lids.
    I keep pop bottle lids for all kinds of crafting ideas anyways, so using them to make stamp bases for my foam shapes came in handy.

    I keep small, med. and large coffee cans also! I paint them then label them as to which can has shapes, letters, animals, flowers etc. of my foam stampers.

    Just another way of re-using instead of throwing out!

    Thx

      i love this idea... i use the foam for car air fresheners. i cut them out in different shapes like shamrocks, cowboy boots and hearts and soak them in essential oils or fragrance scent, poke a hole in them, put a piece of elastic thru it and hang from my car mirror. i'll be cutting shapes for stamps now...thanks

      Wow, what a clever idea. Can they be re-scented and used over and over again?
