HOW TO STAMP WITH CLEAR STAMPS
Clear stamps are very easy to use. However, they need to be attached to a clear block before use. Simply remove the stamp from the backing material and attach it to the block. Then dab with ink and use as normal. When you have finished stamping, it can be cleaned with a damp cloth and then placed pack on the backing material. The stamp and the block can be used over and over again.
I recommend using archival inks as they stamp well with clear stamps.
To make the tags, simply stamp your tags with images of your choice using the photograph as a guide. Thread with twine and/or ribbon.
