Make a card for someone you love!
Step 1. Find an empty toilet paper or paper towel tube. Make a mark along the length of the tube every 1 inch. Use scissors to cut the tube into loops at each mark.
Step 2. It takes three loops to make a bunny – one for the head and two for the ears. As you squeeze the scissors, the tube will tend to collapse into a leaf-like shape, which will be used as the ears. Re-form one of the loops back into a circle, to use as the head.
Step 3. Glue the loops together, forming a rabbit shape. Make sure the loops are as even as possible with each other – at least on one side – so the stamp will make a sharp image. Once the glue is dry, you are ready to stamp away.
Step 4. Pour paint onto a paper plate. Carefully dip the edge of your bunny stamp into the paint. If you get too much paint on your stamp, just dabbed it off onto a paper towel before you stamp on your card. Stamp out the bunnies.
(Tip: Practice stamping on scrap paper before you use your good card paper.)
Step 5. Once the bunny bodies are totally dry, add some details. Use a fine-tip marker to add a bunny face – with whiskers, of course!
