Craft Time: Carve Your Own Stamps

While unpacking from our new apartment, I found left over supplies from Kameron's stamp-making adventure during our wedding planning phase. He had carved his own stamp that we used to add an embellishment to our wedding programs.

Here's what I did:
  • Decide on a stamp design
  • With a pencil, sketch your design into the block

  • & stamp away!
