Eraser to Stamp Tutorial

Pink erasers can be so much more than a standard school supply...using an X-Acto knife, you can transform your eraser into a stamp.


Grab yourself some erasers. If you have to raid your kid's backpack to find some, I won't tell.


Draw out a design. Being the perfectionist I am, I like to draw out a pattern on paper first and then trace it onto the eraser.


With an X-Acto knife, cut into the eraser along the design line. Then, cutting from the side of the eraser toward the design, start to cut away the excess parts of the eraser. When your design is fully cut out, grab some ink and try it out.


So, I mustache, what you think of these erasers turned stamps.


These were so easy to make, in honor of Valentine's Day...


I carved out a few more erasers.


The possibilities are endless. Happy Stamping!
