Scissors Craft: Vegetable Stamping/Print Making

Oh baby bok choy! You are so lovely! You are just begging to be a stamp!

Ready for framing!

Eco tip: Veggie/fruit trays make excellent paint trays before you put them in the recycling bin.

After making the braised ginger baby bok choy, I was about ready to put my veggie scraps in the compost and I noticed that the cut ends of the bok choy made a really beautiful pattern. I left them out to dry and the next day, I had the kids use them as stamps. They loved it and made some pretty cool artwork for Mr. Scissors.

  2. Cheap craft. Celery scraps make good stamps too. A great way to make homemade gift wrap, cards, etc.
