stamps! making my own.8:12 AM

Since my Filo has been looking quite bland lately, I wanted to customise it by drawing, stamping, and adding stickers. So I dug into my rubber stamp box and found that many of them are just too big to stamp into a day on my Week-On-Two-Pages. I remembered reading a blog post several years ago about making your own rubber stamps by using erasers. Well, why not? I'll give it a try. I'll post the instruction towards the end.
I didn't have erasers when I first decided to try it, but I did have some craft foam that I used to use when I was teaching my Spanish Speaking kids how to read English several years ago. I have two sheets of that red craft foam and no longer have any need for it, so I decided to use it as my first try. I glued three small cut up pieces of foam together using a glue gun and prayed that it would work. I got started cutting and I wasn't quite thrilled at how it turned out, but still not bad for my first time.
