Potato Prints

I pulled a couple potatoes aside when we made mashed potatoes for dinner the other night, and while the potatoes boiled, we made this. First, I cut them in half, then pressed a small, metal, heart cookie cutter into the potato -- cutting around the outside edge of the cookie cutter will expose the raised shape and there you have a potato stamp. Or, you can just use a knife and make your own stamp design. We printed on top of a brown, paper grocery bag that I had cut open and removed the bottom from. Right now, our potato print picture is hanging on the wall, but eventually we'll probably use it as wrapping paper. I think it looks even cuter now that the paint has dried. This was a fun art project! more photos
