1. The crayon drawings of a 2 year old friend which were used to wrap one of my daughters birthday presents.
2. A post on the Whimsical Parasol blog about potato printing.
I found a couple of potatoes and cut them into star and Christmas tree shape stamps. It was just coincidence that all the potatoes that I had in the house were small, but this made them manageable for small hands. I will definitely be looking out small potatoes the next time that we do this. The paper that we printed onto was from a roll of brown paper and we used kids acrylic paint.
|The first attempt- Guess which was my side and which was the rascal's side of the paper!|
|The second attempt- All the rascal's work... a big improvement if you ask this proud mummy!|
|The Budding Artist!|
I hope that our family appreciate our beautiful wrapping paper this year. Tied up with ribbon there will be no denying that our presents will be unique and hopefully pretty cool looking!
