This instructable will show you how to make stamps using styrofoam. These stamps are easy and fun to make. I didn't realize until I stamped one to see how it turns out, that the styrofoam stamps give a cool smudgy pattern. Try making some right away, you'll have fun for sure!

Lets start!

Step 1: Materials Needed

To make thermocol sheet stamps you'll need:

  1. Styrofoam sheet,
  2. Pen or pencil,
  3. Shape template,
  4. X-acto knife,
  5. Cardboard,
  6. Glue.
