Step 2: copy the image--easiest way to do that is to right-click on the stage, and select "pic"--that will open up the stage image alone in a browser tab. Then you right-click on that to save to your hard drive. You can hide the carver's hand using your script, or use an image editor like "paint" to crop out just the stamp.

Step 4: glue the template to foam and cut the foam to match.

 

Step 6: coat the stamp with fabric paint and stamp your design
