Use a stencil to draw the desired shape in a piece of fun foam. Cut it out carefully. The shape must be small enough to fit the top of the film canister. After you have cut out the shape, carefully coat the back of the shape with rubber cement. Then place it on the top of the film canister and press down firmly. Allow to dry and enjoy your rubber stamp, using the bottom of the canister as a handle. Make several on lids and store in a small container.

I devised a craft using film canisters as the base/handle for making stamps.
The actual printing (stamp) surface is cut from fun foam and is glued to the sanded lid of a black and gray film canister.
I came up with this idea for a camp training week-end, and it was a big hit with Guiders and Rangers alike (one girl made 14 stamps!) Everyone was so enthusiastic that they insisted that I send my idea off to the Candian Guider Magazine and I actually won the Grand Idea for the Sept/Oct '95 issue! Yup, yup - my local claim to fame!
