Potato Stamps


Do you remember being told not to play with food when you were a child? Well, this is one occasion were you can ignore this rule. Making potato stamps is such fun and when you use your stamps to make cards you actually save some money as well.

We used a little trick to create even shapes. Just cut away the top third of the potato and then punch a cookie cutter into it and remove the bits around the cookie cutter with a knife. It works best with big potatoes and small cookie cutters.

Once everything is removed carefully lift off the cookie cutter and you have a beautiful stamp. We used our stamps to make a card for our new little cousin and niece Mia in Australia.

    What cute cards! I remember doing potato stamps as a child, but I never would have thought of your little trick with the cookie cutters – perfect for the perfectionist in me. Thanks for the tip!

    And beautiful site!
