Do something fun she did with you. We are never too old for craft time. I have fond and funny memories of making potato stamps with my mother. (Some of our works could have populated a Pinterest Fails Board.)
- Cut your potato in half
- Sketch out a quick design on the face of the potato
- Use a pairing knife to cut away the sides, leaving your design raised
- Dip potato design in paint or ink and stamp away
This project aims to step the game up a notch. Cut your potato stamps into shells or flowers. Go geometric with a quatrefoil or chevron design. Stamp on a heavy piece of textured cardstock. Your local craft store will have a cool selection of papers, stationeries and tags to choose from. For this stamping, I used watered down acrylic craft paint. Make place cards for Mother’s Day brunch. Make tags for hostess gifts. Make notecards she can use to write you a thank you note for being such a thoughtful kid and bringing back such wonderful memories. You were always her favorite.
