Sent in by:
Becca of Livingston, NJ 


What you need for this ZOOMdo:
  • cardboard
  • scissors
  • rubber bands
  • double-sided tape
  • stamp pads with washable ink, or washable markers
  • paper you want to decorate
What you do for this ZOOMdo:

  1. Cut out a section of cardboard.
  2. Cut some rubber bands and put them in a design. It can be pretty, crazy or just weird.
  3. Tape the rubber bands to the cardboard with double-sided tape. Make sure the pieces don't overlap or else you won't have a flat surface and all of the design won't show up.
  4. Color the rubber bands with a stamp pad or markers.
  5. Get a piece of paper and print your stamp.
  6. If you want to make letters, make sure you tape the letter on backwards, so when you stamp it, it prints forward.
  7. You can make stationery with your rubber stamps by making a border around an entire piece of paper, or by putting the stamp in each corner of the paper or anywhere you want!
