Do you ever find yourself at the 99 Cent Only Store (crafty mamas congregate here) and see an entire 10 pound bag of potatoes for $1?! Yeah. I’m a sucker for a deal, so I stock up. And when I am sick of potatoes, I get crafty with them 🙂
I wanted to get a picture of making the stamps, but most of our activities happen when Hubby is working (and taking pictures of myself is not a task I excel at). However, the stamps are easy to make. Take a raw potato and cut out shapes you like. I chose easy shapes like rectangles and squares. The star was done with the help of a cookie cutter.
Now I’m sure you could use a stamp pad for the project, but I don’t have any (I’m waiting for a good sale to stock up on them). So I used poster paints from the dollar store (see this painting project where I used the same poster paint!). They worked beautifully 🙂
I used a bib to keep Cannon’s shirt clean and a plastic tablecloth to keep the table neat. If you’re concerned about messes, please make sure to use WASHABLE paints! The ones from the dollar store didn’t specify, but mixing a small drop of dish soap into the paints makes splatters come off much simpler 🙂
