In the new issue of Moyo Magazine I wrote a column about DIY Party Decor:
…..a few photos were used from the projects below but I thought I’d share some additional photos that are centered around DIY stamping! It’s very easy to carve your own stamp…and depending on the theme of your party or gathering a single stamp can carry all the way through:

Boy, stamping sure has come a long way! MANY years ago I taught craft classes thru Continuing Education for Kindergarten classes. I used small paint rollers with things like band aids, elastic bands etc. glued to them and made wrapping paper! We thought that was such a great idea LOL! Like I said – a long time ago! Just thought I’d share. Love the idea using square erasers.
Great info. Lucky me I ran across your website by chance (stumbleupon).
I have saved it for later!
