you used what?

A few weeks ago I came across an article for celery painting... apparently when you cut carefully across the stock base of celery it becomes a very cool looking stamp! I fell in love with this idea and thought i would give it a shot myself... here is how it turned out!

-Shown below is the celery stock dipped in paint and ready to begin!

I used butcher paper here, but it can also be a great way to recycle brown paper sacks!

-Besides making wrapping paper the stamp can be used for gift cards and tags as well!

-Here is the finished project! This was an easy way to spice up some plain brown butcher paper!

-As you can see on my gift tag i added a few clothespin magnets--these are easy to make and a great way to add some fun to your refrigerator!

-ironic that on my fridge in the midst of all the mess it says simplify...

...maybe someday :)
