How to use buttons for stamps


I guess you must have seen a cute photo of buttons attached to bottle corks and were supposed to work instead of wooden or rubber stamps. Well, I've seen it and wanted to try this for months.

..........

Ne vem če ste že zasledili prikupne fotografije različnih gumbov pritrjenih na plutovinaste zamaške z namenom, da jih uprabljamo namesto lesenih ali gumijastih štampiljk. No, jaz sem jih videla in sem si že dalj časa želela poskusiti, če je res tako preprosto.

Step 1 - I got ready my hot glue gun, some interesting buttons and some corks.

Step 2 - I glued buttons on corks.

..........

1. korak - pripravila sem pištolo za vroče lepljenje, nekaj zanimivih gumbov in nekaj zamaškov.

2. korak - nalepila sem gumbe na zamaške.

Step 3 - trying to stamp, yeah, about that... I used black acrylic paint since all my ink pads were totally dry but I don't know if there were bad choice of buttons or it is just that... Not happy with the results, so I guess you can try it on your own, but wouldn't recommend wasting your time on that.

..........

3. korak - uporaba štampiljk, hja, nekaj o tem... uporabila sem črno akrilno barvo, ker se je izkazalo, da so vse moje blazinice s tušem posušene in ne vem ali sem izbrala slabe gumbe ali je to pač normalno... Skratka, nad rezultati nisem navdušena, tako da vam sicer puščam na izbiro, da poskusite sami, ne bi pa priporočala, da izgubljate čas s tem.

I'm not saying this stamps won't come handy occasionally, but it's not what I had in mind. So this DIY project is not something to be excited about.

..........

Saj ne rečem, da občasno te štampiljke ne bodo prišle prav, vendar pa to ni tisto, kar sem pričakovala. In ta "naredi sam" projekt ni ravno nekaj, kar bi me navdušilo.
