Potato stamps are super cool and easy to make with metal cookie cutters. Although this is mainly creative activity for kids, adults can also get lots of fun. Using potato stamps we made Christmas wrapping paper, but you can also make Christmas cards, gift tags or winter pictures. A little patience will also come in handy as the combination of paints and kids can be explosive 😉
Supplies for potato stamps
- Metal cookie cutters
- Paints – we used acrylic and poster paints
- Paint pad so that the potato stamp will fit there
- Brush (optional) – can be useful for applying paint
- Scissors (optional) – may be needed to cut paper
How to make potato stamps?
Making stamps using a metal cookie cutter is very simple and doesn’t require any artistic skills, so we recommend this method.
- Cut the potato
- Insert the metal cookie cutter a little over half an centimetre
- Cut the potato half a centimetre high
- Cut anything outside the cookie cutter
- Remove the cookie cutter
Now let’s make some stamps 🙂
Once we have stamps, it’s time for some creative fun. Dip it in paint or cover in paint using a brush and the stamp 🙂
Try not to move the stamp as the shape will blur. It is mainly caused by excess paint, so it is worth making 2-3 prints in one run.
The paper is drying now, so pics of gifts wrapped in our paper are coming soon 🙂
As we are already packing gifts, check out our idea for gift tags that can be downloaded and printed.

Nothing gives more satisfaction than doing something yourself. I haven’t even thought about DIY as my hobby, I’ve just done different “projects” when it was needed. Sometimes it’s a disguise for the Masquerade Party in kindergarten. Another time, cutting out the pumpkin and baking the witch’s fingers for Haloween. Or simply organizing holiday souvenirs. Now I decided to share my realizations with you. Let’s go it together!
