DIY STAMPS FOR YOUR BULLET JOURNAL | Cactus, Camera…
S T A M P S
I just love them even though everyone things I’m crazy when I buy my x-st one. Letters, squirrels, flowers…I have them all. Well, at least in my dreams. In real life I’m way too cautious what I spend my money on. And three bugs for one stamp? Thanks, but no thanks. I pass.
Therefore I decided to just make some on my own with motives I choose myself. I was surprise to see how effortless and cheap it actually is! Most of the steps below are self-explaining, so I did not write much to explain what I am doing in that specific step. Be sure to share your results with me and how you decorated your bullet journal with them!
HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED:
Most likely you’ll find a cutter or a pair of scissors at home, alongside with the cork or every kind of lid. The foam rubber is available on Amazon or at any local art supply store.

WHAT YOU COULD DO:
2.| CUTTING OUT
3.| GLUE ON THE CORK
After you’ve cut out the pieces, glue them on cork or any sort of lid with hot-glue or a regular glue stick. Be sure to hold it for a few seconds so it can totally dry.
CONGRATS! YOU’VE DONE IT
After you have finished making the stamps, it is time to try them out. Mine look far away from perfect but I still like them and considering the money and effort, I’m totally pumped by the results. Especially the leaves matched my bullet journal page perfectly! I am so excited to try out some more motives.
In order for the color to seek in, I had to press the stamp hard onto the ink pad for a few seconds. Afterwards, it worked perfectly fine and I was able to make several stamps after one press.
Effortless and cheap, isn’t it? It sure is! I hope you liked this post. If you decide to make some stamps on your own, I would be so happy to see what you come up with! Just tag me @beberryful or send me a link to it via mail.
