Last year the kids and I made our first homemade wrapping paper using potato stamps. This year we refined the process with cookie cutters. Read the complete how-to on (yeh, you guessed it) Gardenista.

supplies

Step one: cut potato

Step two: insert cookie cutter

Step three: cut around the cookie cutter

Step four: remove edge

apply a thin coat of paint

stamp onto kraft paper

repeat

again

and again

until you’ve covered the whole roll.

After it dries you can adorn with simple ribbon…

or greens…

or you can even get fancy.
