Make your own stamp from twine and a block
This is a post I wrote a while back to share on my friend Carol’s blog The Answer is Chocolate.
It’s a fun and easy project, and I was delighted to find it on Pinterest
Hello there, The Answer is Chocolate devotees! I am Christine, from Christine & Co. and I am delighted to be doing a guest post for my friend Carol.
Okay, so I have yet to meet the person who doesn’t love Pinterest. One of my boards has “things I have to try out,” so I thought I would bring you one of my experiences.
I came across this picture of a wood block that was wrapped with string, and then used as a stamp. After following the link to this picture, I found out it was a technique (one of many) in this book Print Workshop.
It was written by Christine Schmidt. I had to try it for myself.
Oh you know I’m doing this again! There are so many applications for this.
Here’s what I did…
I took some twine and wrapped it around an old block of wood.
Got some ink on it, and stamped…
I added my own tag, and a strip of ribbon from my stash. Gift bag, anyone?
This was fun–I loved being here! Come by my place for a visit at Christine & Co. The more the merrier!
