Potato stamped gift tags

In my attempt of putting the Christmas cheer in to a discusting, gray and cold morning, we made these simple, Scandinavian inspired potato stamped gift tags:). It’s such a simple craft, looks really nice and can be made even with a toddler!

Personally I love this simple black and gray palette, a bit rustic and a bit modern, but I’m pretty sure it would look great with a white cardboard and green or red paint.

Stamped gift tags

Cut a shape of your choice from a half of a potato. We opted for a Christmas tree shape, but a star would also be nice! Now let your kid get creative and dirty :). Just remember that these potato stamped gift tags look the best when there isn’t much paint on your potato stamp! It might be difficult to explain this to a toddler, but otherwise you’ll just end up with a black stain on your gift card (what happened to us twice 😉 ).

When you’re done just write a name with a pretty pen on the othe side, and you’re done !

Potato stamp valentine toddler craft

image

With Valentines day approaching , I decided it’s about time to prepare some cards with my two year old. I wanted it to be something that she can do entirely alone ( or almost ). So potato stamp is one of these cheap, easy crafts that any toddler can do, and it will actually turn out quite nice !

So first I cut these stamps for her. After she played a bit with them, we made actual valentines cards.

I used hand paint, to add her original signature :

And when I asked her if she wanted me to add I love you , or Xoxo , she chose the second one. After all, it was her card 🙂

 

All you need for this craft is :
Potato
Card stock
Finger paint
Sharpie

Have fun!
