Hardwood Peg Ink Stamps from Etsy Seller Norajane
Here's a type of ink stamp I've never come across before: tiny images mounted on hardwood pegs that are 3 1/2 inches long. Not only are these images from Etsy seller Norajane adorable and perfect for creating borders and patterns, they're easy to use and are therefore suitable for beginners, including children, as well as experienced stampers. The prices are also terrific: as low as $2.00 for some stamps, and only $6.00 for some of the sets, such as the package with a bow you see above.
As often happens when I post about Etsy sellers, the hardest part is choosing which images to show! Pictured above are holly leaves, the box and bow set, and the pumpkin, all lovely seasonal choices. To the right are the tree frog, pine cone, owl, and ladybug. What I haven't pictured are the candy cane, poinsettia, apple (great for making teacher appreciation cards or gifts), starfish, cat, button, pocket watch, rabbit (suitable for Easter), antique phone, and a large selection of birds, flowers, branches and vines, and leaves. It's difficult to choose, but with such low prices you can get several without breaking the bank.
And of course they're the perfect size for stocking stuffers!
