DIY: Easy Potato Stamps

This is something I thought of when Linna wanted to help me in the kitchen. I was in the hurry so I needed her to be off the “helping”. I asked Linna to wash potatoes while I was looking around (still mess in my kitchen – haven’t finished it!) for cookie cutters. I was lucky! I found them just in time.

So, what you need:

  • potatoes
  • knife
  • cookie cutters
  • paper towel
  • ink, paint, etc
  • Paper/card blank/plane wrapping paper etc

How to make a potato stamp:

  1. Cut potato in half.
  2. Choose a cookie cutter you like & small enough to fit.
  3. Press the cookie cutter into the center of the potato. Leaving the cookie cutter in the potato, slice a thick slice around the cookie cutter.
  4. Remove the outer layer of potato and then the cookie cutter from the shape.
  5. Use a paper towel to remove excess moisture from the potato.
  6. Ink your potato stamp.
  7. Simply press your potato stamp down on the paper you want to decorate.
