Cork-Stamped Place Cards Tutorial :: by Melody M. Nunez


Cork-Stamped Place Cards

Featuring the Best Life Alphabet Set

Carving wine bottle corks into stamps is a great way to reuse something you might otherwise throw away, and the resulting stamps can be used to embellish anything from a place card to the pages of your art journal!

To Carve a Cork Into a Stamp
Begin with a dry cork. Draw a design on one end of the cork, or plan the design in your head before you begin cutting freehand. Using a very sharp X-ACTO knife, and working carefully so you don’t slice your fingers or hands, cut out your design. Test the stamp with ink when you think the stamp is ready, to make sure you’re pleased with your design. Both ends of a cork can be used, resulting in two stamps per cork.

Place Card Directions
Stamp a cork flower image onto watercolor paper with black ink. Stamp your guests’ name next to your cork-stamped design using the lowercase Best Life Alphabet. Attach a red gem to the center of the stamped flower design using a mini glue dot.
