  1. Cut a potato in half. Carve a simple design into the potato using a linoleum cutter. Tip: Apples cut in half, carved or uncarved, also make great designs.

  2. Brush paint onto the carved surface, being sure to cover it entirely.

  3. Stamp with the potato on the cotton tote. Re-ink and stamp as many times as desired.
