Tutorial Tuesday - Celery Rose Stamps

Tuesday, May 03, 2011

Guess how we made these lovely flowers? Go on, just guess. 
Want a hint? They are green and crunchy..... 
Any ideas? 
Ok, I'll just tell you. 


Celery! 

Really! The bottoms of celery stalks make awesome rose flower stamps. Jack and I whipped up a batch of wrapping paper, cards, and decorated plain paper gift bags.  They were really easy and the only thing limiting us was time! I think it's perfect for Mother's Day and we're using the paper to wrap up gifts for all the mums & grandmas.

You can tell he's seriously proud of his handiwork ;) 


All we needed was a bit of paint, celery stalks, and lots of paper.  
(lovely way to reuse paper, gift bags, and would even be awesome with fabric paint on textiles!)

I'd totally forgotten about doing this! I have stamped with all kinds of vegetables with kindergarteners.If you choose carefully, some apples make hearts, broccoli makes trees, bell peppers make a flower shape and a carrot makes the center,etc. Thanks for the reminder! This is a great idea for kids to do for Mother's Day.
