What you'll need:

  • pouncer
  • wood block stamp
  • crafts paint
  • scrap paper
  • double-sided tape
  • scissors

Step 1

Use a pouncer to coat a wood block stamp with crafts paint. Repeatedly stamp the design onto a piece of paper, and photocopy it a few times. Cut out each stamped design, and stick it onto an 18- or 20-inch-square pillowcase with double-sided tape until you have a pattern you like.

Step 2

Recoat the stamp with crafts paint. One at a time, peel up each piece of paper, and stamp the design where the paper was. Let dry; add the pillow insert.
