This is a redux of a tutorial from late last summer — but this craft is so perfect for creating peg doll gifts and Valentine cards for your favorite sweethearts, that I thought it would be a good time to bring it back again. Ever Free Coloring

SUPPLIES FOR MAKING A PEG DOLL STAMP

— 1 sheet of craft-foam (this stuff)
— Larger size peg dolls, at least 2 3/8 in tall (6 cm) like these
— water color paint
— beeswax polish (tutorial HERE)
— Scissors & glue

INSTRUCTIONS FOR MAKING A PEG DOLL STAMP
STEP 1 :: Cut a shape from craft foam.  The shape you cut should be smaller than the diameter of the peg doll base.
STEP 2 :: Glue your foam shape to the bottom of the peg doll and allow the glue to dry for at least an hour or two.
STEP 3 :: Have fun using your stamp! T-Rex Coloring Pages

Note: If you use water soluble glue, be careful washing your stamp.  I find it’s best to clean these stamps by dampening a paper towel and gently wiping off ink residue.

SUPPLIES FOR MAKING A STAMPED CARD

INSTRUCTIONS FOR MAKING A STAMPED CARD

STEP 1 :: Cut your card stock paper to desired size. My card stock was 2 in (5 cm) by 3 1/2 in (9 cm). After cutting paper to size, fold it in half.
STEP 2 ::  Use ink pad to apply ink and then stamp your card(s).
STEP 3 ::  Use a black pen to write little messages on your card(s).
