Alphabet stamp Handles

I have these great little alphabet stamps that my Hubby sells and I use. I love letters and stamps, and I thought these were adorable.

They were though, a little hard to use with out getting my finger nails in the clay, so I made my own handles.

Links for the tools will connect you to my Hubby's shop if you are looking for these products.

Thank you so much for supporting myself and my family.

You will need:
Clay Extruder and square disk that comes with set M35055
Alphabet stamps
Scrap Cernit
Crafter's Pick Ultimate Glue
Kemper Slicing Blade

Condition Cernit scraps until they are one color and smooth and pliable.
Load up the barrel of the extruder and put in the 1/4" square disk and extrude a square log.
Cut the square in to 1" to 2" sections.
Lay them out on a piece of corrugated cardboard on a cookie sheet.
Make sure the little sections are straight when you place them on the cardboard.
Bake in a pre-heated 275 degree F oven for 30 minutes, shut off oven and let cool until you can touch them with out burning your fingers.

Peel off the foam baking on the rubber.
Glue the individual letters to the square logs with glue and let dry.

Now they are ready to use. So much better now!!

  8. OMG, Marie! You are a genius! I have lots of tiny letter stamps...and lots of stamps with wooden handles, but I never put two and two together and thought to make my own handles for my stamps. Great idea!

  12. Hi Marie
    Love this idea. I have these stamps, but never thought of making handles for them which is so much easier to use them with handles on. So off I go to do this.
    Great to have people with creative minds around me. Thanks Marie, you sound so much better than a while back.
