Vintage Label or Stamp Art

By:

Turn an antique stamp, soap, cigar or other label into lovely vintage art to hang in your home. This project requires the help of a local copy center or a home scanner and color printer. This is a unique way to decorate any room of the home. Use vintage food labels to decorate the kitchen and vintage soap labels for the bathroom. This clever home decorating craft comes to us from Ashley Hackshaw of Lil Blue Boo.

Stamp Art 1

Materials:

  • large printer or your local printshop
  • old stamp or cigar labels
  • modge Podge or matte medium
  • paint brush
  • 1 or a few canvases
  • Wax paper and brayer (optional)

Note: If you don't have a stamp collection or other old vintage items, try the following places:

Silver Crow Creations (they have SO much cool stuff, including great old cigar labels)
An elderly neighbor
Ebay (search for "vintage stamp lot")
Jamestown Stamp Company (this is where I spent my allowance when I was younger)

Stamp Art

Instructions:

  1. Take a stamp/s to your local copying center and blow up about 400% using their largest printer. Tip: if you tape the stamp to a small piece of paper it is easier to handle. Your little 1" stamp will become HUGE. Another option is to scan the stamps or cigar labels into your computer and print them off 11" x 17" or in small sections.
     
  2. Use Modge Podge or matte medium to adhere the entire sheet to your canvas. Another option is to cut the paper up into large squares and randomly glue them on to cover the canvas. You will end up with less air bubbles. You can place wax paper on top while it is still wet and use a brayer to try to smooth out any bubbles. The canvas below is made up of several strips and squares of the enlarged stamp. You can wrap your paper around the sides as well to give the art a more finished look.
