I wanted to try stamping a fun little card for Christmas.  This is pretty simple and while an adult may need to cut the sponge, this is a great stamping project for kids!

Step 1: Supplies

Time to get started!

  • Blank Greeting Card (and envelope)
  • Melamine Foam Sponge (I got mine at Daiso, it's a dense sponge, The Magic Eraser is made of it)
  • Green Ink Pad
  • Red Ink Pad
  • Yellow Ink Pad
  • Pencil
  • Optional: Brown and Black Marker
  • Exacto Knife or Scissors to cut the sponge
Get your Sponge Ready!  Using either a scissors or exacto knife, cut a corner from the sponge.  It doesn't have to be that big, mine is about an inch from flat surface to tip.  I like the cleaner cut of the exacto knife, but a scissors works too.  If you use an exacto knife, make sure to use a cutting mat.
nice one
