Gather your materials and scissors. You may also want a scrap piece of paper or two to keep your work surface ink-free.

Test out a few designs to decide what kind of stamp you'd like to make. Your monogram, stripes or a geometric pattern would work. Just make sure to keep it simple.

Based on your drawings cut out your design. You can either trace it onto the foam sheeting or just go for it. If you are going to trace your deign make sure to reverse the design.

With your design cut out arrange them on your wood block to make sure they fit. We needed to trim ours a tad before attaching them to the block.

Repeat as many times as you'd like. Let the ink dry completely before you handle the stamped bags or paper.
