Did some potato printing with Master Five as a school holiday activity. Here are some of the writing paper and envelopes we decorated.
Most of the potato prints we made using cookie cutters – just cut the potato in half, press the cookie cutter about 4mm into one of the flat surfaces and trim around the edge with a sharp knife. Remove the cookie cutter and a nice crisp, clean stamp is ready to go.
The house print above we carved freehand into the potato to create a simple negative print design.
We used bright acrylic paint on a kitchen sponge to make our stamp pad.
Made some new note pages for the my Filofax A5 Domino planner. The image of the girls running came from an ad in a 1920’s newspaper. I printed the pages out on yellow A5 flyer paper (I get Quill Flyer Paper 240 pack in four colours from Officeworks in Australia).
The PDF file contains two A5 pages, so you can print them singly to A5 paper or two to a sheet of A4. Once printed, either use them as-is for notepaper or letter paper, or punch holes to add them to your A5 planner.

I’ve put together a Personal planner sized page as well, but have no idea how well it prints. It’s probably best used for printing directly onto personal sized blank pages, but I’m guessing you could probably get three across an A4 page and then cut them. Philofaxy has a great printing tutorial (personal page size is at the bottom). Note that these pages all have the margin on the left, so aren’t meant for printing back to back.

Made it – just over 50,000 words written (not particularly great words, but words nonetheless) 🙂
