Project #45 Okra Printed Gift Tags

Tuesday, 1 December 2009 by Irene Hoofs
Okra Printing Project:  Gift Tags by Kristen Sutcliffe from New House Project

This project is simple enough for even young children to enjoy.  My 2-year-old did a great job with it!  I used okra because of its unique shape, but you can try other vegetables too. (In the past I have made cute post cards using lotus root.)

What you'll need:
*fresh okra(vegetable)
*scrap paper
*card stock
*hole punch

Step one:

Cut your card stock into desired shape for gift tags. 
Step two:
Slice okra in half using a sharp knife.  You will get a better print with a cleaner shape if you remove some of the seeds before stamping.
Step three:
You can make a stamp pad to use for this project by painting a sponge with a generous amount of paint.  Make sure the paint is pretty well absorbed into the sponge. 
Step three:
Practice stamping on a piece of scrap paper.  If you place your paper on a sheet of felt you will get better results.
Step four:
Stamp your gift tags, and then punch a small hole in each tag to complete the project.
