There are so many wonderful things to do with homemade stamps. Use them to decorate Christmas cards, gift tags, or a pretty scene on paper for your child to decorate with crayons.

I think it would be cute to create a whole set of alphabet stamps, which would make a fantastic holiday gift!

Step 4: Glue the cut out shape onto the non-gold side of the wooden circle
Step 5: Glue the knob onto the other side and you’re ready to start stamping away!
Step 6: Wrap it up in a box for a great gift or just a special place to keep your holiday stamps.
