Potato Print Wrapping Paper

Our craft project for the week was potato print wrapping paper.  We had fun cutting shapes in the potatoes adding paint to the potato shape and then printing it on brown paper.

We happened to have block print ink by Speedball on hand but we have used tempra paint in the past and I imagine acrylic craft paints would work too. 

Mary wanted an angel so we printed a simple image of an angel with a trumpet from Google Images then she cut her potato out around it and it turned out very nicely.  We also cut up brown paper grocery sacks and made little gift cards to match. 

  This simple project was fun for all ages and the wrapping paper will come in handy.
