Lotus Flower seed pods make fabulous stamps


Lotus seed pods = very cool shapes = very cool stamps

After receiving a stunning flower arrangement last year containing some of these seed pods, I dried them out ...simply by letting them die a natural, slow death.... and they've turned out to be the best stamp complete with their own little handle after the stem has been detached. Grab some brown paper and stamp away (I used foam padding underneath the paper as the pod's surface is uneven). Wrap a gift and add the pod as decoration or use for another stamping day

I love the top photos...don't they look like Martians with hundreds of little eyes?
