Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner and it is a sweet time of year where we may take extra time to create for others and our home.

Once of my favorite ways to add details to wrapping paper, note cards and tags is by making my own hand carved stamps.

This is so much easier than you may think and a lot of fun to make.

I wanted to share with you one of the videos from one of my art courses with step by step details how to make your own hand carved stamps.
