With 6 days to go before Christmas it is time to start wrapping those gifts…

Now is the time to get creative and start wrapping those gifts….

This year I’ve decided to keep the gift wrapping simple, a strong brown kraft paper and a red ribbon. Emma on the otherhand had different ideas and asked if she can do potato stamping on the gifts.

I usually cut the potato stamps freehand, but with a kitchen full of Christmas biscuit cutters I’ve tried to press the design of the biscuit cutter onto the potato and it worked so well that i will never do it differently.

Use Large potatoes, put the potato on a flat surface and slice off the top of the potato to expose as much “flesh” as possible. Select a cutter that fits onto the potato and firmly press the cutter into the potato as far as possible. Remove the cutter and with a small knife carefully cut away the potato around the pressed design. We’ve used white paint and stamped the designs onto the already wrapped gifts.. What fun and it only took about 30 minutes for me to cut and Emma to stamp all of the gifts.
