Hello, my pretty little readers!

What is a rock stamp, you might ask? A rock stamp is a little invention of mine that came about because I wanted more stamps. Problem is, stamps can be expensive. Rock stamps are cheap!

They are super quick and easy to make, too, so what are you waiting for?

Time:

5 minutes

Materials:

  • glue gun
  • foam stickers/shapes (I like to use three of the same shape but you could probably get away with two or even just one)
  • flat rock – a rock that has a flat side to it (pro-tip: don’t use a painted one like I did in this post :P)

Cost:

I’m going to assume you either have a glue gun already (it’s pretty much a necessity if you’re a serious crafter) or can borrow one from someone.

  • foam stickers can be bought at the Dollar Store for $1.00
  • flat rocks CAN be found outside, for free!

Grand total = one dollar! You could easily spend way more than that on a single rubber stamp.

Instructions:

1. Peel the paper off the bottom of the stickers and stack them on top of each other. If you are using foam shapes, then glue them together instead. I wouldn’t use hot glue, though, or it will make them bumpy.

Side view:

2. Glue the stack of stickers to the flat side of the rock using hot glue. That’s it!

Here’s another rock stamp I made many years ago, which was the inspiration for this post:

Want to see these stamps in action?

Final Thoughts:

I clean these thoroughly between each use with some water and a paper towel. Dunk the stamp into some water, then use the paper towel to blot and dry, until the ink is pretty much gone. You can also always peel off one of the stickers and replace it with another one if you don’t want to be bothered!

Need some wrapping paper ASAP? Use one of your new stamps on some plain paper/brown kraft paper!
