Potato print gift wrap by Khali from Little. Lovely.

Making a stamp from a potato is a fun and inexpensive way of turning plain paper into something special. Why not try personalising your next gift with potato stamp gift wrap?

What you'll need:
*Potatoes
*Water based paints
*Pencil
*Plain paper

Stepspotato

Step one: 
Cut the potato in half. Draw your desired shape on the surface of the potato using a marker pen. Cut around your shape with a kitchen knife, leaving the design raised on the surface of the potato. Note: An adult should cut potatoes for young children.
Step two:
our a small amount of paint onto a saucer then rub the potato in the paint. For the best results make sure the surface is evenly coated.
Step three:
Stamp the potato onto paper. You may be able to use the stamp several times before dipping in ink again. If you wish to use another colour, wash the potato clean,dry and repeat step two.
Step four:
Allow your print to dry before wrapping your present.
