How to create a custom stamp

Posted by  ·  February 10, 2014  ·  Last Updated: February 10, 2014

Would you believe you can create your own custom stamp from supplies found at Lowe’s? This is a great kids activity.  We used these simple supplies to create some Valentine’s Day Cards.

Grab some scraps of wood. We used 3 inch squares of MDF. You will also need some kitchen and bath sealant or caulk.

Use a pencil to make an outline of your design to use as a guide.

Place sealant along the pencil drawing. If there are raised areas where you started and stopped, a finger dipped in water can gently pat them down.

Allow sealant to completely dry. Read package for complete details. Once dry paint a little paint on the dried sealant and stamp onto paper.
