Make It Review: Rolli Stamps and Project Idea

This cool new inked stamper product by Funnybone Muse is sure to be a family craft staple. Here's what it's about, and how to use it to jazz up a note card.

Make It Review: Rolli Stamps and Project Idea

There's a brand-new stamp heading to arts and crafts stores, and it's on a roll. Literally! Rolli Stamps, the first product from toy company hybrid Funnybone Muse, is a roll stamp that comes ready with its very own ink pad already included so that you can keep yours in the craft closet. Small and mighty, these stamps have sweet designs and funny names that will give you and your child's craft projects a hint of much-needed silliness.

 

Retailing at $11.99 for each stamp, Rolli Stamps can create up to 100 feet of continuous pattern on most surfaces. Funnybone Muse suggests using the stamps for paper crafting projects such as scrapbooking, DIY greeting cards and even personalized wrapping paper – and they're right on. If your family loves to stamp and craft with paper, these stamps are definitely worth a look.
The only downsides to Rolli Stamps is that they can't be re-inked, but you know that up front. The stamps are also marketed for children ages 13 and up. While I wouldn't leave a pre-inked rolling stamp with a young child, I'd feel confident letting children ages 7-8 and up craft with these.
The stamps are currently available for purchase online. From sea lions to traveling dogs, there are many cute patterns to choose from.
Your child can make simple note cards with the help of Rolli Stamps in a snap. Here's one approach.

Materials

  • Cardstock in various colors
  • Rolli Stamp of your choice
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Tape runner
  • Envelope
  • Extra stamps and markers for decorating (optional)

Instructions

1. Start out by rolling a line of Rolli Stamp on a light-colored piece of paper.
2. Trim the strip to 1.25" wide and about 4" long.
3. Place the stamped paper strip onto a colorful piece of cardstock and attach with a tape runner.
4. For your main card, cut a piece of cardstock (in your favorite color) to 4.25" by 6.25" and then cut another piece of light-colored paper (the same color you used for your Rolli Stamp) to 4" by 6." Attach the light-colored cardstock to one side of the card with a tape runner.
5. To personalize the card, stamp or write the sender's name on a piece of matching light-colored cardstock; mount the name just like you did the stamped pattern.
6. Adhere the stamped papers to the front of the card with a tape runner.
7. Add a bit of Rolli Stamp to the back of the card's envelope by rolling over the flap. Place a piece of scrap paper underneath for a continuous look off either side of the envelope flap.
