A Savvy Craft: Shamrock Potato Stamps

I love it when I can use hold hold and pantry items already on hand to create fun with my kids.  I like these Shamrock Potato Stamps from Family Fun because it's simple and I already have everything required to make these.  These would make a great note card to attached to a plate of Rainbow Cupcakes for a neighbor gift on St. Patricks Day!

  • Heart-shaped cookie cutter (2 1/2 inches wide and long)
  • Potato, cut in half
  • Paring knife
  • Green acrylic paint
  • Paintbrush
  1. Press a heart-shaped cookie cutter into the cut face of a potato half.

  2. With the cutter still in place, use a paring knife to cut the potato from around the heart (a parent's job).

  3. Remove the cutter, then dip the heart into green acrylic paint and press it onto the paper. Repeat to make two more leaves, then use a paintbrush to add a swish for the stem.
