Valentine Potato Stamps

Valentine Potato Stamps
The kids and I made Valentine Potato Stamps the other day.  It’s a really fun way to create your own custom stamps and eliminates having to run to the dollar store or dig through the craft room.  Why yes, those ARE pink skulls.  What can I say?  I have boys!

You will need:  potatoes, a sharp knife, white card stock and acrylic paint.

Cut the potato in half and score a design into the flesh.  Does a potato have flesh?  Anyway…
Valentine Potato Stamps
Cut around your scored design, creating a raised image.

Have your future Picasso’s dip the stamp in paint and apply their image to card stock.

    Hi Heather,
    Thanks for sharing this (and your other ideas)!
    I am wondering, do these potato stamps “keep” for more than the day? I’d love to be able to reuse these a bit. Maybe keeping them in the fridge helps? Any other ideas to make stamps that could be reused..? Cutting sponges..?
    Thanks much and warmest greetings from Holland,
    *ps, I just intended this as a question to you and not a comment to everyone, if that’s possible. (?)
