Step

Step 1: Create your stamp!

* GET AN ADULT TO HELP YOU * Cut the potato in half and press the metal cookie cutter into it. Using a knife slice a few mm into the potato around the cookie cutter. Once you pull the cutter out, the shape should be raised from the rest of the potato.
Step

Step 2: Paint your stamp

Using a paintbrush to get the paint on the stamp works a lot better as it creates a smooth stamp. Then firmly and evenly press the stamp onto the paper and repeat the process. Try and create alternating patterns.
Step

Step 3: Change the colour!

You can easily wash your potato to re-use it and change it to another colour! Try using some metallic paint to add some shine to your wrapping.
Step

Step 4: Wrap your gifts!

Once the paper has dried, you can now wrap up all your Micador goodies and put it under the tree ready for Christmas Day!
