Halloween Cards

Spice up your Halloween cards using your name stamp. Create greeting cards without using lots of items. Use your stamp as designs for your Halloween cards, rather than paying to have them printed. Make use of any of your available craft papers. For example, cardstock, kraft or thick papers. Then, ready the ink with the color of your choice, and your stamps.

Loot Bags

Candies

Personalised wrapping papers

One of the easiest ways of creating a personalized wrapping paper is through stamping. There’s no need to buy for wrapping papers, when you can make your own. Using your rubber stamps, make new designs that are unique and more personal.

Balloons

Blow the balloon at least ¾ with air. To custom print the balloon with your stamp. Try to keep the air inside and grasp the neck of the balloon, instead of tying it completely. Then, when the stamp is fully inked and clear, gently press the stamp on the balloon. And let it dry. Once it dries, you can blow it with helium, then tie its neck around again.

Napkin Holder

Your napkin holder looks… boring? Give it identity! Not only does this make it a good contemporary table piece, but it also gives the room cohesiveness. Ink it using your self-inking stamp. Use the design to liven up your napkin holder. Complement the color of the ink to the colors you want it to and give it a personality.

Stamp designs that, mostly give a complementary feel to napkin holders, are less likely to be large in prints. Go for patterned prints or single stamp design, that adds a whole new dimension to the finished holder.
