With my ruler I just connect the lines diagonally.
It will look like this when you are done drawing all your diagonal lines.
I then cut it all out with my scissors. There is something about cutting craft foam to me that is therapeutic, it just cuts so smooth. When your done cutting you’ll have a ton of chevron stripes like this.
I then used what I had on hand (which was foam core board), you could use that or if you have some nice scrap pieces of wood that you could make custom sized blocks that would be perfect and make it washable. I however did not have that on hand. So mine aren’t washable, but that’s ok.
Now you just hot glue your chevron stripes on to your firm surface, be sure to space them evenly. And your done with your stamp. For my striped stamp I just measured and cut my strips. Super easy.
I wanted to create something I could use as packaging for my son’s class treat for Valentines Day so I chose a red & white acrylic paint to use when stamping on my bags.
I just used a round foam dobber paint brush and applied the paint to my foam stamp then stamped my bags. Carefully lifted my stamps up and let my bags dry.
