Potato Stamps

I love this idea - it combines three of my favorite things: Food, Crafts, and Christmas! Super easy too. Just take a raw potato, cut in half, then cut out the image you want. You can use a carrot too for smaller images. This is great for kids who need a little better handle.
My mom taught me this when we were really little. It is super fun for kids and adults alike! I love buying blank wrapping paper and making it my own. 

This was one of the papers I have made. Trees are super cute and easy, candy canes, the words "ho ho ho." It would also be cute to have the person's initial of who was receiving the gift in Christmas colors. Do anything! Try it out!

It reminds me of preschool. I always loved to do this.
You can also use cookie cutters to cut out shapes. The easiest way to do that is to press the cookie cutter into the potato and cut around the cookie cutter with a knife and than remove the cookie cutter. That's how we used to do it.
