DIY Pencil Stamp

With only a few cuts in your pencil’s rubber you can make a small stamp – great for decorating envelopes, cards and gift tags!

I’ve used water colors, two pencils and a scalpel. First use the scalpel and cut the shape you want from the rubber. Too detailed shapes are difficult to make, but a heart and a clover or a star is definitive possible. By using not too much water on the colors you’ll get the perfect stamp mix. Good Luck!

  2. Need to start looking for these old pencils that are too short to write with 😉 I’m sure they’ll still make excellent rubber stamps!
