ok, so we all try out new crafts by starting to read up adn then chucking instructions out the window and deciding to wing it...don't we?

well, i figured i could try making my own personalised stamp from an eraser and a craft knife and oh, i was so excited - it was turning out so cute, i was bubbling over as i finished carving, feeling very proud of myself as i reached for the ink pad,,

oo....

aaah...



oh.

Lol, I know that feeling! On the plus side you could stamp that on a different eraser and have exactly what you need to carve done for you.

 Cheesy  You just made my day!
I say use it anyway, and tell everyone you did it on purpose. You'd totally come off as awesome!

Aww...  While I haven't done it with stamps, I've definitely done it with other things (including the famous cut two of the same instead of mirror images).  In the last year. And I've been crafting for at least 15 years. 

It does look like a great stamp though.  If you make one the right other way, it would be totally cool to make hang tags for your stuff, and use this one on the back of the hang tag.

I second this idea!

Dunno if it's already winging its way to the bin but, you could always get some ink that would print on transparent/translucent materials... that way you could still use it because the letters would face the right way through the material?

Still, I've done that cutting letters out before.  Smiley Don't worry.
