Several months ago I saw something similar to this online and the idea stuck with me. I came across some yarn in Kurt's closet today and decided to try making my own. Here's how it went:
I used one of my acrylic stamp blocks to wrap the yarn around. I imagine you could use any small block shaped item you may find around the house to do this, as long as you don't mind if it gets a little ink on it.
After wrapping the yarn around the block, I pressed my ink pad against it. I found that it's easier/less messy when you put the "yarn stamp" on the table and press the ink pad down onto it instead of vise versa.
I just looped the loose end of yarn under another piece to hold it in place.
Pretty fun huh? I want to play around with it more to see what different types of style & color variations I can make.
Have you ever made your own rubber or yarn stamp?
Oh, and speaking of new adventures and stamps, Claire (Kurt's mom) and I are going to a Rookie Rubber Stamp Workshop at Paper Source this coming Saturday. I'm really excited about it!! I'll let you know how it goes.
