Hi, I am very happy to share a quick and easy tutorial with you today. Any parent of an active child will no doubt have a pack of band aids in their bag (along with other essentials like toy cars, stray Lego pieces, spare underpants, box of tissues…). I know there are cool band aids out there with character goods which can produce more tears if just the right character isn’t available for the latest cut or scrape but I thought, why not personalise the band aids?

What you need:

  • band aids (water proof)
  • rubber stamps
  • ink pad

I recommend the waterproof band aids because the ink won’t soak through to the other side, which is the bit you need to keep clean.

  1. Carefully remove the band aid from the cover, you want to keep the band aid as clean as possible so make sure you do this on a clean work surface.
  2. Use your stamps to write out messages, you can have fun personalising them for your child, you don’t have to stamp out words, you could use picture stamps too.
  3. When the ink has dried, slide the band aid back into it’s cover and patiently wait until the next time you need one….or two….
