Make Stamps from Craft Foam

Kate Pullen
Making your own unique foam stamps from craft foam is easier than you might think! All that is required is to transfer a design to the craft foam and cut this out before applying it to a stamping block. Any bold design will work well. Use your own designs or, if you are seeking inspiration, take a look at some clip art as many of these designs will also work well.

About Clip Art

Clip art is freely available and there are literally thousands of designs ready for download. Designs with bold and simple outlines such as flowers and hearts are ideal for making into stamps. Before using clip art do check the terms of the clip art provider to ensure that they allow free usage of their designs. Our About.com guide to Clip Art has more information about downloading clip art and about clip art copyright.

Ready Cut Foam Shapes

Ready cut foam shapes are also readily available from craft stores and these also make ideal shapes for foam stamps.

The craft foam shape can be attached permanently to a piece of wood or other block, or temporarily attached to an acrylic block using a repositionable glue.

Materials Required
  • A sheet of craft foam
  • A mount (either a piece of wood to permanently mount the stamp or an acrylic block)
  • Either permanent or repositionable glue
  • Suitable design
  • Pen
  • Craft knife (with cutting knife) or a sharp pair of scissors
