Editable passport stamps template

I wanted to briefly share here how I made the passport stamp template for my students' international passports from English winter camp (the same camp which is available for purchase below).  
It took a decent amount of searching on the internet before I found something that would work, so hopefully this can save other people some time.

Making passport stamps for kids

I used a photo of blank passport stamps from istock and resized it in Microsoft Word to half the size of an A4 paper.  Then I inserted various text boxes and word art to write the country's name in 10 of the stamps, while leaving room for a date stamp.  Since I only needed ten stamps, it didn't matter that the middle of the photo was covered in an "istock" watermark; I simply didn't use those stamps.

Also, since mine would only be printed in black and white, I didn't change the font color. If you print these in color, you could make them look a lot better by playing with font colors.

Here's a word document of the editable passport stamps.

And here's a picture of the stamps in a student's passport, with the date stamp:

And here's where you can download the blank passport templates I used (black and white) for the kids.
