Hello Rubber Stamp!

Make a custom rubber stamp!
I did a couple Doctor Who related stamps...heres the TARDIS and a DALEK
This one is simple and could be made with a pink school eraser!
Draw out what you want on scrap paper.
 Cut it out and flip it over.
Then trace the word you wrote so it reads backwards...
 Flip it back to the "readable" side and rub graphite all over it.
 Set it graphite side down on your rubber.
Use a pencil to trace the outline and the "hello"
 Then use a hobby knife to cut out the bubble shape.
 Then carefully cut the word following the pencil line.
Don't push the knife in very deep...just a little cut will do it.

Then cut another line just slightly larger than the one you did first.
Cutting in at a little angle so you end up cutting a thin little ravine.

 Until you are satisfied!
 I cut out a little heart too!
Then ink it up and see how it works!
