Upcycle: Wine Cork Rubber Stamps

When I make smaller stamps, I like to use wine or champagne corks for the handles. After I carve out the stamp, I just glue it to the wine cork with a little E6000 glue. The wine and champagne corks add a little extra charm to the rubber stamps.

If you've never made a rubber stamp before, Geninne's Art Blog has a well detailed tutorial.

This is so, SO genius. It totally puts my bent paperclip handles to shame, lol. LOVE IT! I'll be linking.

What a clever idea! I knew there had to be a reason I've saved those wine corks over the years. ;-Þ

Great idea. I usually use children's building blocks from the thrift shop to mount my homemade stamps, but your way is so much more elegant!

It's actually cute making that stamp and the cork as holder.

Happy monday!
