Make your own stamp from twine and a block

This is a post I wrote a while back to share on my friend Carol's blog The Answer is Chocolate.
It's a fun and easy project, and I was delighted to find it on Pinterest

Hello there, The Answer is Chocolate devotees!  I am Christine, from Christine & Co. and I am delighted to be doing a guest post for my friend Carol.  

Okay, so I have yet to meet the person who doesn't love Pinterest. One of my boards has "things I have to try out," so I thought I would bring you one of my experiences.

I came across this picture of a wood block that was wrapped with string, and then used as a stamp.  After following the link to this picture, I found out it was a technique (one of many) in this book  Print Workshop.
It was written by Christine Schmidt.  I had to try it for myself.  

Oh you know I'm doing this again! There are so many applications for this.
Here's what I did...

I took some twine and wrapped it around an old block of wood.

 Got some ink on it, and stamped...

  I added my own tag, and a strip of ribbon from my stash.  Gift bag, anyone? 

This was fun--I loved being here! Come by my place for a visit at Christine & Co.  The more the merrier!
