Try It Tuesday~wine bottle corks!

Hi guys!!!
I can't say I have collected these wine corks, I can't say I have saved that many from drinking the wine:):) but I can say I bought them, and not a junkin' buy either.  
Would you believe Hobby Lobby? Yes I found them there and couldn't wait to create with them.

I made some little stamps from them.  Not an original idea but fun!!!

I started with some text bubbles from Studio Calico ( just using what I have) and hot glued one to the bottom of a cork.  I pressed it down on the counter, so as the glue cooled it would adhere flat.

 I tried them out~
They worked great, just make sure you are stamping on a flat surface.  I put my cards on a board and then stamped.

So many ideas on how to make these.  You could use foam to cut out a fun shape. These would be great to make with children too.  Let me know if you make some:):)
