Here's the December Daily binder I told you I was stamping inside yesterday. Stars instead of triangles...
Serious fun for almost no cost. You could even make these stars with an Xacto knife and some white erasers if you wanted to.
It makes me very happy. The only thing I'd change if I hadn't cleaned up already is that I'd stamp on top of the silver round parts from the outside label. But I'm over it, so it'll stay this way.
My favorite star was the one that I added extra little carves in. You can see what I mean in the blue one above.
I was thinking about adding a few gold stars but I am liking the white space, so I probably won't.
I originally made 3 stars, large, medium and small, then broke the medium by cleaning it too roughly so turned it into a second small star. I'm not sure if it's that I'm rough, or that stamps made out of erasers aren't quite as sturdy as other carving materials. Or maybe hand carved stamps just don't last forever regardless. They worked great for this and I am already thinking of other stamps I want to carve. it's how it always goes, if it's fun, I want to make more.
Yesterday I was at it until the sun started setting...
Might get to make some tomorrow...the weekend isn't over yet!
