Among my weaknesses for bright nail polish, baked goods and anything polka-dot, cute stationery ranks right up there when it comes to things I can't seem to have enough of. I am not sure if my college internship at a custom invitation store is to blame, but regardless, I always like to have cute stationery on hand for thank you's or quick little notes. This DIY stationery is a fairly easy project with limitless design possibilities and I would love to see what you come up with. Comment below and let me know if you try it!

• rubber bands
• wooden blocks
• super glue
• X-acto knife
• ink in your color of choice
• pre-cut blank stationery or note cards
• cutting mat (optional)

1. Begin by deciding on the design you would like to make for your stamp and cut your rubber band accordingly. I wanted to create a diagonal stripe pattern, so I made an angled cut through my rubber band and applied glue to the backside. Note: I only made one cut through the rubber band and will trim the rubber band to size in Step 3.

2. Adhere the rubber band to the wooden block and firmly hold in place for approximately 30 seconds. Be sure to get enough glue near the edges of the rubber band, so the ends do not curl up.

3. After a minute or two, once the rubber band is securely in place, flip your stamp over and use an X-acto knife to trim the excess. I found this method to be easier than trying to cut my rubber band into small pieces before gluing it to the wooden block. Since rubber bands are round, I found when I trimmed the rubber band into small pieces they were harder to work with. The rubber band constantly wanted to curl up, so by cutting the rubber band once, and gluing it to the wooden block before trimming it to size, it was easier to get it to lay flat. Ultimately, just use what works best for you and the design you are making!

4. Repeat Steps 1-3 to complete your design. Once your design is complete, let your stamp dry for a few hours before use. If necessary, flip your stamp over with the rubber facing down and stack heavy books or another heavy object on top in order to firmly adhere the rubber bands in place as the glue dries.

5. Lastly, use your new stamp to create your very own customized stationery!
