Wait! Don’t Throw That Away! A fun stamp project

HI Everyone! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I wanted to share this project with you because its quick and totally fun, It is also a good way to add custom stamps to your art supplies super cheap and you’re keeping something out of the landfill.

I drive my boyfriend crazy. I will not let him throw anything away that I think I might be able to turn into ….well anything.  After using up a roll of Saran wrap I noticed how sturdy the inside cardboard is. Not the floppy kind that are inside paper towels, this one is super hard. What could I do with that? It’s too good to throw away! teehee.

At the same time I was nursing a freak wrist injury so I was using medical tape to wrap it up and keep it from moving, It also has this super hard core of cardboard. Hmmm.

Then I found these foam disk things we have had forever, to keep things from slamming and protecting walls and stuff. Hmmmm.

The stamp from trash was born. It is a super quick easy project, you definitely do not have to use the foam round things, you can use whatever you like, you can cut any shape you want with that foam sticky paper, probably even glue gun if your careful.

The length of the Saran wrap cardboard is great for continuous patterns on bigger pieces of paper (lines, chevron patterns, floral) because it can roll.

It would be a quick project to distract the kids for a bit.

I hope you enjoy!
