HOW TO MAKE A SNOWFLAKE STAMP

STEP 1: Print out the provided template and cut out the patterns. The template includes 2 different sizes of sets for the snowflake pattern.

Select the one you want and trace them onto the craft foam sheet using a pencil.

Then use scissors or x-acto knife to cut out the traced patterns. You will need 6 pieces of each pattern to make this snowflake stamp. 

STEP 2: Cut out a piece of cardboard for the stamp base. The cardboard piece should be big enough to hold the complete snowflake pattern.

You can place the snowflake template cutouts on a flat surface to check its actual size once it is complete.

STEP 3: Now, let’s start attaching the foam cutouts on the cardboard base. Start with the longest patterns.

Keeping the square point facing toward the outside, attach all 6 cutouts on the cardboard with their plain sides in the center. 

Attach the longest points of the pattern first.

STEP 4: Grab any 2 rhombus cutouts and attach them on both sides of a long pattern.  

STEP 5:  Grab the rest of the rhombus cutouts one by one and keep attaching 2 opposite rhombus shapes on both sides of a long pattern. 

STEP 6: Attach all 12 rhombus foam cutouts on the cardboard base.  

STEP 7: Now grab the small square cutouts and place one square between every two long patterns. Or you can place them as you want.

STEP 8:  Allow the glue to dry completely once the craft is complete.  Then use a paintbrush to apply paint on the top surface of the foam snowflake pattern and stamp right away!
