Wine cork stamps are super simple to make and a great way to make some quick and sweet Rosh HaShana cards. With the Jewish New Year just around the corner in three weeks, now is the perfect time to make cards so that one can even send them to friends and relatives near and far. The apple is one of the traditional symbols for the Jewish New Year, and the perfect shape for making a wine cork stamp!
You'll Need: a wine cork, a sharp knife, a red stamp pad, a black pen, some card stock.
How To: Using a sharp knife or a craft knife, simply remove from the cork two notches, one for the indentation at the top of the apple and one for the indentation for the bottom of the apple. That's it! Stamp carefully, with a towel under the cardstock to enable a better print, and set aside to dry before adding details.
And of course you can certainly use your little stamp to make gift tags, napkin rings, treat bags, you name it! And if you'd like to explore some other methods of stamping, you can see my previous posts here: potato printing, craft foam stamps, styrofoam tray printing.
