DIY: Cork Stamp

I'm trying to get into the habit of making cards rather than buying them. I started when I sent my sister the Make a Wish Birthday Card. Now that Valentines day coming up, I thought it would be fun to create my own stationary for the occasion.

With some corks and paint lying around my house this project was both easy and free.  Ready to make your cork stamp?


You can choose any shape you'd like. Simple shapes are best because they are easier to cut out. I choose a heart because I thought it would be sweet for Valentine's Day. This bunting idea from Pilli Pilli is super cute, and I'm saving this Christmas tree version from Feathers and Freckles for next Christmas.

I know you know, but just a quick note to be careful and not to rush in this step. You don't want to slice a finger!!

And, that's all there is to it. Now, go ahead and stamp you heart out.  ;)
