Potato Stamp Wrapping Paper is a lovely way to share the holiday spirit with friends + family while getting the younger ones in on the fun.
Making potato stamps requires nothing more than a cutting utensil and a potato, so it's an easy project that can be done at the spur of the moment. And depending on your skills, it can be as simple or complex a design as you see fit.
I chose a simple design for my stamp, carving this fun little reindeer out by hand. But if you want a design that has a cleaner edge, using a metal cookie cutter is a great choice for a more finished look. Just press the cookie cutter into a potato that has been sliced in half lengthwise and trim away the excess potato while using the edge of the cookie cutter as your guide.
That's all there is to it!
I loved creating these potato stamp wrapping papers and especially how easy they were to make. With the two little tot's we now have in the family, it's a small but special way for them to participate in the holiday activities along with the adults they so love to emulate.
I hope you enjoyed this quick + easy holiday craft project and will try it with your family. Potato stamp wrapping paper is a great way for the everyone to get in on the holiday fun while creating a special holiday tradition.
