How to make your own Hinged Stamping Tool/ Stamp Positioner

Let's face it, if your a crafter, you're a DIYer.  
I just can't help myself from trying to "make it myself". 

Mini Misti tool open

 The idea to use a hinged stamping tool has been around for a while. I've used my Lifestyles Crafts Letterpress platform for stamping for some time now and when a cleaver crafter reworked the hinged stamping idea and released a popular tool, it jump started the interest in this type of tool and it has newly interested many stampers, cardmakers and scrappers.

I just wanted to share here how I made a hinged stamping tool that is limited in some functionality to other tools you may have seen but it works great for me. The compact size is awesome and so is the cost.  Yes, it's cheap!, Yes, It's not high quality, but it works great. If you want quality look into the MISTI TOOL. They're fantastic!

Here are the supplies I used to make this fun DIY stamping tool

Make your own Stamping tool supplies

1 DVD/Stamp Storage Case with Hinge 

1 Little B Perfect Positioner

1 Sheet 3mm Fun Foam OR you can use 2 sheets of the thinner fun foam

Grid Paper

Here's a video showing how I did it and a couple of ways to use it. I'm sure you can think of many more.

One thing I didn't mention is that I removed the tabs from the case that would normally hold the (paper) artwork for a DVD just to give a little more room in the stamping area. They are VERY easy to remove. Simply bend them back and they come off very easily without braking any other part of the case.

I also have another version that doesn't need the "sticky" surface. I added a thin piece of sheet metal under the fun foam layer and use a strong magnet to hold the paper down. If I'm only creating 1 card, I like the "sticky" version better.  I also have just taped my cardstock down with washi tape or Micropore tape (my very favorite low tack tape for crafting) and that works great too! 

Have a blast making your own stamping tool!

    New immigration law system could look like

    any difficulty,it sounds as if anyone who can show they are directly descended from the Earl of Grantham will automatically be let into the country. everyone else will have to satisfy two conditions before they are even considered: EITHER that doctor needs to have at least 5,000 with them and also an item for the Antiques Roadshow which has been in their family for four or five generations, OR they must have a certificate from three top online dating sites declaring them to be eligible.

    Every newly admitted immigrant must bring his or her own high precense jacket. In the first year of residence in this country they will not be allowed to travel on Southern rail (in order to prevent further overcrowding) And will only be permitted to remain if they have accumulated 750 “desires” On tagged, Passed a stiff exam about storylines in The Archers and demonstrated that they know which re cycling wheelie bin is the correct one for plastic and glass.

    Proposed disruptive activities include showing up at the wrong reception area for their hospital appointments, Having forgotten examples of digits from their 10 digit NHS numbers and giving inaccurate dates of birth. mr Leslie M Arbuthnott (fake knee), A ringleader of the militant big, Said they shall be delaying lifts by holding the doors open for late arrivals and then pressing the buttons for all floors.

    “If the Health Secretary still refuses to talk to us in a helpful manner and address our concerns, We will demonstrate our very real anger by wilfully misunderstanding the numbered ticket system for [url=]j4l[/url] blood tests, Mr Arbuthnott informed.

    have some brakes off slow TV

    it appears “Slow the media” Is getting more popualr fast. After the prosperity of BBC4’s two hour broadcast of a bus tour of the Yorkshire Dales, Without discourse, The same channel will be airing more shows featuring James May, the first kind Top Gear presenter, Dismantling various home objects and then putting them together again. These new objects would include a Kenwood Chef food mixer and a Hornby train set.

    apple few ideas for other series in the slow genre. an example may be to show that classic test card with the little girl at the blackboard with her toy monkey. It would stay just like that for 59 minutes as the suspense built up to an almost intolerable level, And then suddenly, with your ex piece of chalk, The girl would write a random informative word on the blackboard.
