DIY: Rolling Pin Geometric Stamps

Categories: DIY + How To

You know we love a good handmade stamp here. Not only is a stamp something that even someone with zero drawing skills can make, it’s the gift that keeps giving since you can wipe, change inks and keep stamping! The idea of using rolling pins (which normally live in the kitchen) is brilliant because think of all the cool patterns you could make with this, for tea towels, curtains, pillow cases, napkins, shower curtains…all sorts of home ideas!

And this is basically where the helpfulness of this post goes down hill. We spotted this idea on the Spanish blog SuTurno, and you can see tons of photos of the stamps in action on their Facebook page. But we’re at a loss to see how they made these suckers. Maybe glued-on rubber bands? We’d love if anyone who’s familiar with this idea to give us some hints on how to do it! In the meantime absorb the inspiration and MacGyver it yourself!

  1. I have done this with ink brayers. Sticky back foam works (i found mine in the dollar store/crafts section). Silicone or other type of glue can be “drawn” on. Furniture feet pads (felt type material with adhesive on the back). Go through your office supply place and you’ll find lots of sticky back things that can work. Teacher section has stuff too. Linoleum can be cut into shapes and glued on with silicone or other glue. I could go on and on. . . .

  2. It looks like double-sided tape on the rolling pins. Maybe foam strips or cut rubber bands.

  3. Yah i agree sticky back foam dye cut or cut trough any digital cutting machines for more intricate designs.

  4. Einfach genial, wird in den nächsten Tagen ausprobiert.

  5. Super Beitrag, wird demnächst ausprobiert.

  6. hmm..first thought..i use dbl adhesive foam from staples. It comes in rolls..not sure what THEY use it for but I use it to pop up stuff on my cards. Since it is in a roll…about 1/2 -3/4″ wide, you can cut however long. Stick one side to the paper on the roller and use like baby powder to take off the sticky on the other and ink ‘er up!!!

  7. Hi, I thought you’d be interested in this article. It’s for clay, but it can also be applied to paper and fabric.

  10. How about using a lint roller? It’s already got the adhesive on it, so then you just add the sticky whatevers on it. :D
