This fun, eco-friendly potato stamp wrapping paper craft gives any gift a unique, personalized look–and you probably have all the supplies you need in the house already! My family loves to give each other little gifts and wrapping them up in our own homemade creations makes it extra-special for everyone. I’m always inspired by my awesome friend Kimberly Muller and her adorable designs, check some out here!
What you will need:
Recycled paper bags or un-dyed craft paper (depending on the size of your gift)
Sharp kitchen knife (adults only, please!)
Step 1: Slice a potato in half lengthwise.
Step 2: Press cookie cutter firmly into the potato.
Step 3: Break excess potato away from the cookie cutter using your hands (and knife, if necessary) and remove potato shape.
Step 4: Paint one side of your potato “stamp.”
Step 5: Press the stamp onto the paper, paint side down. If you’re left with gaps, fill in with paintbrush.
Step 6: Decorate away! Create lines or patterns with your stamp for a uniform look, or let the kids go to town with splatter paint and fun freehand designs.
Step 7: Wrap your gift and give it to someone special!
