I think this idea is absolutely adorable and also a great up-cycle from all of those corks you have (if Sarah hasn’t hit you up for yours already). All you do is with corks of different sizes, press them into an ink pad and onto your item of choice. Then simply embellish stems or leaves using a fine tip marker and that’s it! You have adorable fruits and veggies to add to tags, home-made jams, cards, etc. To view the full tutorial from Martha, click here.

Cork Stamp How-To
