The craft of stamping images onto fabric or paper is always fun and satisfying, so when I spotted a collection of large foam stamps at the dollar store a few years back, I scooped them all up, and wish I had bought duplicates! Foam stamping does not produce the crisp results one can obtain with stenciling (see prior post) so I wouldn't recommend doing it on your walls, but there are so many other ways to use this quick decorative technique.
I have used these stamps for projects with children as young as 5 years old and fun was had by all. Even imperfect results are charming and can be used as wrapping paper or for gift cards and tags.
Stamping is the kind of thing you just can't get enough of, so before you get started make sure you have a whole bunch of boxes, paper and anything else you can think of on hand! I used one of these stamps on cracker boxes turned inside out to make really festive Purim containers, but you'll just have to wait awhile to see them!
- Buy some foam stamps like these, if you can't find them sit tight, I'll hopefully be teaching you how to make something similar in the future!
- Using acrylic craft paint, apply paint to the stamp with a large brush
- Carefully place stamp on paper and press down
- Lift from paper to enjoy the results
All the best to all my wonderful readers, and a big thanks to those of you who have taken the time to leave comments!
