DIY Stamps with Hannah

Some time ago, I asked Hannah from Hannah Lauren and Co if she wanted to do a shared DIY project with me, and after some thought we decided to create patterned stamps.

I have chosen two different kinds of materials to make mine, one using a rubber, and other two using craft foam. Both ways are very simple to make and stamp easily onto paper.

If you are going to make rubber straps, a good way to make sure the stamp will be exactly as you want it, is freehand or print a piece of paper with the design you want to create and trace it onto the rubber. Then you just have to cut it following the lines. 

To make the craft foam stamps, I started by making the base of the stamp where you will be gluing the foam. I used a tetra pack package, cut it in squares and small rectangles and hot glued several layers together till I had the size I wanted.

You can also make a handle to help you hold the stamp, especially for bigger stamps.

Finally, cut the craft foam with the shape you want, and glue it to the base.

And that's it, as I said this is really simple. If you want to make it even more quick and easy you can use something else you have in hand to make the base maybe a piece of plastic or wood, I just wanted to make it recycled that's why I choosed the tetra pack package.

Check out Hannah's stamps, and her blog Hannah Lauren and Co as well, she blogs about beauty, fashion and lifestyle.

This was my first try making stamps, have you ever made some?

Using two spoons or your hands, shape the dough making round flat shapes

Top 5 Easter Crafts of the week

Hi everyone, this week I decided to make the top 5 a bit different, with the Easter theme.
I've discovered such creative crafts and I hope you like it.

You probably already know how much I love cute and simple things and these bunny bags very quick to make. The tutorial uses already made muslin bags, but you can easily create your own. Click here to see the instructions.

Aww, these bunny hears are so freaking adorable. This idea is from  "The House That Lars Built" and you can see the full tutorial here.

One of my go-to materials to make something simple and fast is air dry clay and these bunny bowls from alice&lois wold look great at the Easter lunch table.

How sweet are these bunny hears cookies? Sue from "Munchkin Munchies" made her own template to make the cookies fit the glass and used markers to draw bunny faces. Check out the instructions here.

I was thinking of making a polka-dot nail art on my nails this week, and while searching for easter diy's I came across this bunny nail art. The reason I like it so much is because it doesn't scream EASTER NAILS!!! but still remains fun and playful. This is from
