You will need:

  • cardstock paper, letter size -> one or more
  • a styrofoam tray (like the ones that come with veggies, washed and dry)
  • not-so-sharpened pencil
  • scissors
  • acrylic paint
  • paint brush
  • a paper plate or any other dish for paint
  • Washi tape – optional

 

you will need

Short explanation:

  • Fold the paper in two, to create a card
  • Using scissors, cut edges of the tray, so you have a flat piece of styrofoam
  • Make sure the styrofoam fits the folded paper
  • Draw and write on styrofoam with the pencil. It will actually engrave the drawing in the styrofoam, to create a stamp.
    Tip: if you are writing, make sure you write mirror-facing.
    { In this case, the word MOM looks the same both ways}
  • Pour a little drop of acrylic paint on the paper plate, and apply the paint onto the stamp you have just created in a thin layer
  • Print your stamp on the card’s cover
  • When dry, Decorate with Washi tape (optional)
  • Make more and more and more and enjoy every minute 🙂

 

Happy Mother’s Day to all Moms in the world!
