Craft - printing


Craft club again this evening, and we did printing.  My friends brought a brilliant selection of things to print with including celery, corks, string, potatoes, bubble wrap. loo roll inners ...




I used various items to make the gift labels in the picture (potatoes and lego blocks) and some printed paper (potatoes, bubble wrap, corks). One of my friends printed a whole roll of wrapping paper with the most beautiful roses, using celery (like this).

Playing around with the different objects, dipping them in paint, mixing colours, finding patterns - it was another lovely relaxed, creative craft club evening.

  2. I did one year print the wrapping paper and cards for Christmas. That was pre-children and never repeated, but I love the gift tags you've done. May need to get my celery on!

    1. Thanks! I enjoyed printing so much I'm determined to keep on with it - and I love the idea of making practical stuff with a purpose like gift tags and wrapping paper.
