How To Make Your Own Homemade Stamp Set

A while ago I bought a bag of corks to do a cork building boat activity. Since that time I have had about 50 corks sat in one of my art supply boxes just begging to be used. I did use quite a few of them to make our Harry Potter Houses noughts and crosses set. Now I have finally used the rest to make some homemade stamp set for BB to use.

Make sure you follow my homemade toy board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own homemade stamp set you will need:

  • Corks
  • Styrofoam sheet
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Glue gun

Start by tracing the end of the cork onto the styrofoam sheet. That way you know how big you can make your design.

Inside your circles draw your designs. Then use a pencil to “colour” in the negative space around your design so that it will stick out. Of course you can also do it the other way around and draw over your design making it inverted. Remember if you are going to do a letter or number, you will need to draw it back to front. Something I forgot to do! Whoops.

Next cut out your designs, and using the hot glue gun attach them to the end of your cork.

BB spent a good 10 minutes playing around with his new stamps, before he ditched them and just started using his fingers instead. Because they are small, they will be good to take a few out in a busy bag. I can pretty much guarantee that YC would enjoy that too.
