For Christmas, my mom gave me this really cool paper punch.
I was excited to use it, but I wasn’t sure what I was going to use it for 🙂
That is until I made all of these…
18 bars of felted soap!
Once they were dry, I needed to tag them with ‘something’ so I could write the scent of soap and price.
I had a box of stamps, but I didn’t want to use a plain, square piece of paper…
then I remembered my paper punch and went to work.
I love how this particular punch has scalloped edges…it looks like a wooly sheep!
Once I had a bunch punched, I stamped them with one of my favorite stamps…
I found this stamp on Etsy awhile ago and I was sad to see that the shop has closed 😦
If you want your own sheep stamp though, I did find this one…Custom Sheep stamp. I also found this stamp that says Handmade By.
I used a piece of yarn and voila – my felted bars of soap are tagged, priced, and ready to go!
If you want a truly custom stamp like this one…
you can order one fairly reasonably through Rubber Stamps. They also have self-inking stamps that you can customize with your contact information.
The punches can be found at your local craft store and come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes.
