Cork Stamps

This was my 1st attempt at making stamps out of corks. They turned out ok. I can’t draw very well so it wasn’t the bear’s fault, it was mine. Try it out and show me what you come up with! Remember you can use the ends of the corks or the long rounded outside!

Supplies: Corks, pens, xacto knife

The heart seemed to sink in a bit the the middle so it wasn't too clean when I stamped it, the bear was a hot mess, the carrot looked pretty good!
