Back in middle school art class, we were given the opportunity to make our own stamps to test our patience and creativity when it came to block printing. It was a fun exercise, I recall, so memorable that I’ve been wanting to try my hand at it again ever since.
It’s the type of project that requires planning and patience, and you’re sure to get better over time. Start with an easy design (think: the silhouette of balloons for DIY party invites, your handwritten name as a custom sign-off, or a set of kid-friendly stamps for craft time) and have fun!
