things you need:
cork from wine bottle
pen or marker
paint1. poke the blunt end of the needle into the cork so that the cork acts as a "handle" for the needle.
2. draw your design on the styrofoam.3. light the candle & heat the end of the needle on the flame from the candle.4. use the heated end to cut out your design. you will have to heat the needle a few times to get all around your design. i advise doing this outside because the fumes from the melting styrofoam is not good to breath in!5. once your design is cut out, paint the side you want to use & stamp it on paper. you just finished your first styrofoam stamp!
