1 To de­sign a cus­tom stamp, mea­sure and draw a geo­met­ric pat­tern onto craft foam (prefer­ably the self-ad­he­sive kind). 2 Use a blade to care­fully cut out shapes. 3 At­tach each foam piece to a scrap of wood to make the stamp’s pat­tern. (lf your foam isn’t self-stick, use spray ad­he­sive.) 4 To make gift wrap, lay out a roll of butcher pa­per or other un­coated, non-glossy stock, tap­ing down edges if nec­es­sary to keep it flat. 5 Stamp, us­ing an ink pad, to cre­ate a re­peat­ing pat­tern.

GIFT WRAP AND TAGSUse stamps to cre­ate cus­tom wrap­ping pa­per (direc­tions below). Turn pre­cut pa­per coast­ers into stylish or­na­ments or tags with a sin­gle stamp of ink and an em­broi­dery floss loop.
