  • Ultra Clean Ultimate Stamp Cleaner
  • Paint Edger Refill
  • Quick Instructions for this Project

    1. To trim the peg stamp, hold the peg stamp in your left hand (if you’re right handed) and simply turn the stamp while you cut the edge from the rubber with scissors in your right hand.

    2. To clean your stamps, rotate the rubber end on a baby wipe or stamp shammy. If the ink is really stuck, spray Ultra Clean onto a Rub It Scrub It pad or paint edger and simply rotate the rubber end. NEVER submerge your stamps in water or any liquid. The adhesive will be compromised and the rubber will fall off. If a rubber end does fall off (with the adhesive), simply glue it back on with super glue.
    3. Store your stamps with the rubber ends facing upward or with stamps lying on their sides out of direct sunlight.

    4. Instructions are available here, via Rubber Stamp Tapestry’s tutorial video.

I hope that you enjoy these and tips I look forward to hearing from you soon. Until next time, happy stamping from all of us at Rubber Stamp Tapestry.

    I have my stamps in a metal can, and cut a piece of bubble wrap/or foam to put in the bottom. Then I have the stamps rubber side down, so I can see the design on the “top” of the dowel. Is this system OK?

      Yes. The rubber is tough and the bubble wrap is a great idea!
