diy rubber stamps

I know I’ve done a post on making rubber stamps before, but I was making a new set for an upcoming DIY and I thought I’d share the process again!  So grab some erasers, an X-Acto knife, and let’s get to work.

I was carving simple shapes this time, so I just used the knife freehand.  If you’re making a more advanced shape, you can use a pencil to sketch it on the eraser before you make a cut.  Then, the first cut should be downwards into the eraser, tracing your shape.  Try to cut no more than halfway through the thickness of your eraser.  After you’ve traced your shape with the knife, start cutting away at the sides, being careful not to slice in too far.

Keep whittling away at it until you have your desired shape.  You can use the X-Acto knife to fine-tune things once your general shape is cut out.  Then, just ink it up and stamp away!

Be sure to come back next week and see how I’m gonna use these bad boys.  It’s a pretty cool little DIY.  xoxo

  1. inspired by your lips/mustache stamps you made for your wedding, I actually made an intricate fleur de lis stamp out of an eraser and used it on a card purposed for you and Mr. Lovely. I even used gold embossing powder to add a bit of glam! But the day of your wedding it straight up disappeared. To this day I have no idea where that card went. Crazy.

    Love these new stamps by the way– these tribal-adventure patterns are totally in.

  2. I’m a big fan of rubber stamps. Until now I mostly used the rubber backs of pencils as minitiature stamps but will give these ones definitely a try too. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. I love love love these. I’m wondering if I can get a little more detailed and make a logo for my new etsy business… I’ll see how I go. Thanks for the inspiration.
