Wine Cork Stamps

How to make mini stamps from wine corks via

The SYTYC Contest is on hiatus this week. I still have to come up with a project by tomorrow for next week! Here was my submission last week for the “mitten” theme: little matching mitten cork stamps. It didn’t get the most votes but I am still in the game! I used them to create some stationary for a Santa letter….

Wine corks are the perfect size for making miniature stamps. (click here to see some others I have made.) I start by slicing off one end of the cork so that I start with a perfectly flat surface:

    I used to love making stamps from corks. I've stuck with stamps from potatoes ever since I stabbed myself with the razor, though…your pics make me shudder thinking about it!

    This is ingenious…I’m now having one of those “why didn’t I think of that!” moments, especially as I recently threw out some leftover wine corks without thinking!

    Great idea! Adds personal touch to letters and cards. Now I need to buy more wine to do this:)
