We’ve had a lot of summer birthdays lately and I wanted to create a handmade gift tag that screams sweetness. So, of course it had to be macarons, right? These DIY macaron stamps work so well on gift tags, or you could use them to make your own wrapping paper or stationery.

Supplies: foam sheets, wood block, scissors, glue stick, pencil, acrylic paint or stamp pad, paintbrush, cardstock
1. Draw your macaron shape on foam sheet.
2. Cut out shape.
3. Glue shapes to wood block. Press firmly to make sure it is secured.
4. Brush watered-down acrylic paint on foam stamp and then stamp away!
Here’s a tip for you when stamping. Make a mark with pencil on the front side of your wood block where the center lines are. This helps when stamping. And how cute would these gift tags be on an actual box of macarons?
