Potato stamp Christmas cards made with household stuff!

Fold paper in half and cut into 3rds. I did a squiggle cut along one edge for a little fun visual interest :)

Cut paper bag into 8 rectangles. Fold each rectangle in half and cut from folded edge to make a frame and an inner box; the inner box is to be glued to the inside of the card. "Frame" is for outside.

Slice raw potato in half and carve out your design. I made trees! Dip in paint. I used green, yellow and blue acrylic paint on a plate and mixed them gently.
