Alphabet blocks can be used to make rubber stamps from precut foam shapes. If you don't want to use the block that way you can cut new ones from scrap wood then glue or use 2 sided tape to attach the foam shapes on all sides of the wood block.

The foam shapes and the kids' alphabet blocks are available at the $1 store so you can make a lot of stampers at a very low cost! If you know a scrapbooker or tag artist this might be a fun way to be a part of their crafting world with the addition to their supplies this way. And if you're lucky, they might gift you with something they actually made using the tool you made and gave them.

Call me crazy, but I do collect plenty of plastic bottle caps. I just collect them thinking I might be able to make something out of them. I wasn't wrong after all.



  • plastic bottle caps
  • rubberfoam sheets (assorted color)
  • hot glue
  • craft punchers/scissors
  • pencil if without craft punchers


  1. Cut out round foam shapes based on the size of the bottle caps.
  2. Next, cut strips from the foam sheets. The length of the strips will also be based on or depend on the size of the cap.

  4. Cover the sides of the caps with the foam strips.
  5. Place the circles on top of each piece.
  6. Draw different shapes or patterns and cut them out of foam. Or use different craft punchers if available.
  7. Place them on top of each piece.
  8. Done! Ready to stamp.
