Ultimate Last-Minute Valentine

Totally forgot about Valentine's Day? Got an old potato in your kitchen? You're set! What seems like the simplest and most childish gift, will get you extra points for being nostalgic and homemade. (You could opt for the dried pasta glued to a card technique). Needless to say, this is also a great Valentine's Day activity for kids (show them there's more to this day than cupcakes and chocolate). Our Creative Director's daughter Freya showed us with ease how it's done...

ink (Freya used acrylic paint)
a Valentine

slice the potato in half
carefully use knife to carve a design, the simpler the better
spread a thin layer of ink on a flat plate
dip the stamp or use a paintbrush to apply ink
stamp lightly

Here's another route you could take.
