It's tougher (for me anyway) to make cute stamps for boys...so, when I saw these kendama toys popping up everywhere...I thought, why not? Of course, you can use it for any occasion...but just in case you want to use it for Boy's Day (May 5), I made a small "Happy Boy's Day" stamp...it fits perfectly into the larger of the kendama balls.
Here's a really simple card:
Just cut a 4" x 7-1/2" piece of card stock...score at 2" and 4" from the left side and fold as shown below:
I used a piece of baker's twine to connect the ball to the toy...then made some crazy loops (gluing it down in a couple of key points to keep the "loopy" shape).
With a little practice, you can get the words pretty much in the center of the ball:
I also came out with a bunch of new mini wood stamps...I'll be back soon to share those with you!!
