Val's Crafty Corner Last Minute Easter Bookmark

These last-minute Easter bookmarks are a great way to keep the kids busy while creating a little gift for their friends or family! To create the stamps, I cut some potatoes in half, then invited my daughter to add designs to the cut surface with a dull pencil.

We wiped off the excess starch with a paper towel, then started stamping on a sheet of recycled white cardboard using our favorite washable Melissa & Doug Jumbo Stamp Pad. So colorful and festive!!

I would have encouraged her to cover the entire sheet of cardboard, but she needed very little encouragement from me!

Once she had covered the entire sheet, we cut it up into strips, punched a hole at the top, and added some ribbon. She was so proud of her handmade gifts!
