So, I felt like doing something different this weekend. I stopped at Michael's and picked up the Speedball starter kit. Back in middle school, we had made stamps, and I remember liking it. Tonight I made 4 - a heart, the letters HP in Harry Potter font, an elephant head, and Tinkerbell. The elephant one was stolen as soon as I finished it by my roommate, so I don't have any pictures of it. I think the rest of them turned out halfway decent, for it being my first time since I was 14.

(pencil for scale)

The only problem is, I don't really do paper crafts at all, I just wanted to make stamps. Now what do I do with them?  Wink If I make more, I'll post them here!

I made mine, with lots of glitter and shinies.

If you buy fabric paint, you can stamp plain t-shirts to make unique t's.

They turned out really well, especially the Potter one.  On top of using them the make shirts, which was a great suggestion, maybe you could use them to make a neat border around your walls?

Well, I don't have suggestions...all I can think of is paper-crafts(using them on books!) And t-shirts, which has already been suggested...
Other than my lack of helpfulness, those are lovely! Tinkerbell is possibly my favorite Disney character. Next to to the Beast, of course

Love them-especially the HP one. I letterbox, in which people use either handcrafted or store-bought stamps to identify themselves more than their name. Here are two links to more information about letterboxing:

Thanks for the ideas! I'm definitely going to continue making stamps.

if you get some enamel paint you could stamp on tiles and flowerpots and maybe even coffee cups.  but make sure it doesn't ruin your stamps (wash quickly or something).  and find out what you have to do to make the enamel permanent, maybe bake it or whatever.

creative criticism always appreciated!
