Super Easy DIY Stamp Tute

I've seen so many cute homemade stamps all over the internet. My favorite is the cross stitch one, and let's just say, it's not as easy as it looks. My next thought was, okay, so what's my second favorite trend? 

Mustaches, duh.

Here's my finished product, followed by the tute:

Precious, right? I don't know about you, but I kind of love his little imperfections. It just reminds me that it is homemade, and I put my heart into it! And my absolute favorite part about it, was how easy it was! Just keep reading. You'll see.

First time watermarking say whattt? ;)

Step 1: Draw your shape onto the pink eraser. I chose to freehand mine, but tracing would probably work 100% better.

Step 2: Start cutting all around the shape. You'll want to cut all the way through. Don't worry too much if the base is a little thicker, it actually makes it a little easier to hold! This process probably took about a half hour. Thank goodness the men were watching football, and I had plenty of time.

And that's it! For my fellow paper crafters, this process just makes it so easy. It can be so hard finding the perfect stamps sometimes. I'm seriously considering starting a chevron one later this afternoon. I'll share pictures on Instagram if I do (Follow me @snugly_duckling to see!). 

Have any questions? Ask away! I'll be glad to answer. :)
