Here are two stamps I made:



I love stamps and I wanted a ballerina stamp for a long time but I couldn't find one. Plus stamps are always expensive...
So I bought two cheap erasers (50cent each) and made my own stamps (I got the idea from a German crafts forum). They really turned out well, better than I had expected!

So if anyone is wants to know in detail how I did this (I don't know if your familiar with making stamps out of erasers) tell me!
I hope you like them!

This is really cool,  how big were the erasers? I love the ballerina, did you draw the pictures yourself?

The eraser were triangular (not perfect but they were cheap ;-) ) and 6cm x 3,5cm (in the middle). The key is from stencilry and the ballerina from some ballett website. I just resized them in Photoshop. I might try drawing the pictures myself next time...

They are really easy to make and cheap (I'm a student myself...).
You just need erasers (the should not be too soft or else you won't get enough detail) and a exacto knife.
And I did use this method to transfer the laser printed image to the eraser:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=156073.msg1556562#msg1556562
I used acetone which is also useful to remove anything that is printed on the eraser.

And you need a lot of patience/concentration if you want to do something small/detailed...

If your interested in a tutorial tell me then I will take photos the next time I make a stamp.

I'd definitely be interested in a tutorial! I'd like to try getting into cutting my own stamps, and I feel like this is a small enough project to begin with.
