How I Used a Die as a Stamp

Maker’s Movement sent me the Nesting Doll die set. I decided I wanted to try something a little different with the dies. I wondered, can you actually stamp with a die? The answer is yes, well, kind of. Doing so leaves a light image but it is enough to work with and I make this sweet keychain using the technique.

Thank you to Maker’s Movement and Grafix
for providing materials that are used in this project.

Nesting Doll Die Set

To begin, I clipped the pieces of the die apart that I needed to work with. Then I cut out the doll shape from the Grafix shrink film.

Video Tutorial:

Look at the difference in size from the die (the original size) to the shrink film after baking. Not only did the size change but the colors got more intense.
