Potato Stamp Wrapping Paper

Crafting hand-stamped wrapping papers is the perfect way to add a personal touch to the holiday season. And best of all, it's an easy project that can be done at the spur of the moment.
All you need is a potato, some acrylic paint, and a roll of plain wrapping paper. Just carve out your stamp (simpler designs are usually better), apply your paint, then stamp away!

    Wasn't potato stamp the start of rubber stamps? I love this, and I never got into rubber stamps, so I will do the potato stamp as I can just toss it after I am done.
