If you missed our holiday wrapping event at Rare Device this past weekend you can still make your own wrapping paper at home!
Home made wrapping paper is so easy and fun to make and it adds a special little something to each gift. You can make anything from geometric patterns to holiday specific motifs. All you need is some blank butcher paper, some carving rubber or linoleum (our carve-a-stamp block works great!), a carving tool, and ink pad.
– draw your design on your stamp
– carefully carve out your design
– ink up your stamp
– stamp away!
– wrap that present up!
So we’ve been having a grand old time making Halloween stamps with the new Holiday Cave-A-Stamp Kit! Using the templates and making up a few of our own, here what we came up with! For our extra templates click the link at the bottom!
Tracing from the poster is easy, and you can modify the templates, like how I added a Jack-O-Lantern face to the pumpkin.
We stamped on paper and envelopes to make some spooky and festive stationary, but you could stamp on cloth or paper candy bags, ceramic and glass dish ware (remember to heat set!), or really anything.
You can find the Holiday Carve-A-Stamp kit HERE! And for a few more spooky templates download HERE!
Just in time for Valentines Day I’ve got some X and O stationery and gift tags that you can print out and give to someone special.
Best part, all you will need is the print out (down below), 2 pieces of 8.5 x 11 paper or card stock of your choice, scissors, craft knife, and rubber cement.

Growing up in a house full of women in Kansas City I thought the World Series of Baseball was called the “Royals Series.” The Royals won in 1985 so that just made good sense. I live in SF now and and nobody even cares about the Royals, their awesome logo or George Brett. Nobody here makes “Bo Knows____” references. But San Franciscans DO have a very good team and I sure they are going to beat that other team that is totally not the Royals.
So, hey, Giants fans — I carved some stamps and stamped some apparel. You can make one for the Giants or your own home team with our Carve-A-Stamp Kit and our All Surface Ink Pads!
Different sport, same technique!
