how to make your own stamp

Sheets of foam can be purchased at most art supply stores and they are very easy to cut. I drew this paisley onto the foam and used a pen to make the little dot designs. Using a glue stick I adhered the paisley to a block of wood. You can use acrylic paint or block printing ink applied with a brayer or a brush. Another alternative with small children is to use commercial ink pads. The stamps are a fun way to make your own wrapping paper.
