Hand printed Paper With Potato Stamps

The girls went to their friend’s party yesterday so we decided to print the wrapping paper ourselves. I love block prints but that would have been too involved at this point, so we used potatoes (see below). You just cut them in half, trace your design in pen, cut it out and apply paint with a brush before printing away. You can see exactly how with this video. We will be doing more of these as it’s so much fun and we loved the result. Well, you can see that because I was taking the top photo before the paint even dried. Please comment if you try this – would love to see your results too so feel free to email me a photo!
