DIY: Hand Carved Eraser Stamps

I don’t remember when the last time I used pink erasers was but it turns out they have many more uses than arithmetic mistakes. Henry and I had fun with this little activity last week. I carved out a couple shapes in a few old school pink erasers and Henry stamped away with a washable rainbow ink pad (best invention ever- I use it all the time).
I thought letters and numbers would be cute for little gift tags (shown above).

Due to my inability to carve out a decent circle, this balloon one I attempted when stamped looked just like little- ahem– a little swimmer (as pointed out lovingly by my husband). I can still think of some useful things for this swimmers stamp: baby shower? gender announcement? sex ed talk with your kids as an alternative to the ‘where i came from’ book from the library?


love this… I am having so much fun going though all your tutorials. brilliant!

ha! well it makes me feel better to know that you are capable of making a mistake, as your diy's always look just perfect.

I've done these before with great success. Thanks for reminding me (I'd completely forgotten about this art).

I've been also carving stamps lately and it is so much fun! I love yours.

I should have saved the paper + sperm stamp. It's gone missing already!
