Potato Stamp Birthday Crafternoon

22 Apr

Saturday afternoon I invited some friends over for a birthday crafternoon. We made potato stamps, drank sangria, and ate tasty, lemony birthday cake. It was the perfect way to spend a sunshine-filled Saturday afternoon.

Thank you to everyone who made this afternoon extra special for me. I’m such a lucky girl!

For some DIY potato stamp projects and inspiration check out last week’s post on Potato Stamp Artwork.

Carving potato stamps.

My favourite part: getting messy.

I believe a little wine always helps the creative process.

My lovely friends and their colourful stamps. Everyone had the same materials but all the prints are completely unique.

Time for cake! Thank you so much for the pretty and delicious cake Vanessa!

Love the bright colours and bold prints.

Some retro inspired green prints and the end of another successful crafternoon.

I’m really pleased with how my triangle potato stamps turned out! These prints look great in Henry’s little breakfast nook.

This was a super simple DIY project. The finished product is bold, graphic, modern. Who knew potato stamps could be so chic?
