Celery Stamp

Wrapped
This is a fun way to play with your food and make beautiful
custom wrapping paper for Christmas.
Celery stamped wrapping paper.
I made the little white tag with DAS clay that air dries overnight. Nice & simple.

I ♥ celery salad and the cut hearts make great stamps.
I used a white ink pad and stamped the rosette onto recycled brown paper.

Such a pretty idea! I agree that it looks like roses. Only problem I have here is getting to the celery end before my guinea pigs devour it!

Wow, that is beautiful. I happen to have some celery around and I don't really like it all that much, maybe I will cut off the end...

Thanks for the inspiration!

Oh my goodness this is the best! I never would have thought about that. No one will ever know it's celery either, unless you tell them.

Great innovative idea :)

Wonderful way to get rid of that end of the celery plant. Never liked eating celery when it reached the wide end.

This is so beautiful.... love the collage too!

Love this! Years ago, by chance, I made this same beautiful discovery while cutting vegetables, and later I stamped celery rosettes on a T-shirt for my mother in law.

Have you ever seen the amazing Tree of Life that can be found inside a head of cabbage?

Also, check out the Madonna and Child I found in an onion!

how adorable and clever. it has a very 50s look to it and so easy! I love ants on a log and celery in general too. a great trick is to use it in other recipes that call for garlic, adding a little brings out the flavor

Arent they beautiful...I would never have thought of that. What a great stamp design. I wont be throwing out the celery heart again without having a play.

Love your little tags too. I have some DAS, might make a few Christmassy tags for my pressies too.

Thanks for the inspiration and sharing.

Wrapping paper looks great, it reminds me of when I was in primary school and we did the same thing with potatoes, cut in half and you would cut a design onto the flat surface :)

The sign of a true artist is being able to see art and beauty in places no one would else would think to look. Talk about stop and smell the roses.

Hi Geninne! I really love this idea - it's so lovely. I actually made my own celery-stamped wrapping paper for a package for my mother. I have my own craft blog, and I was hoping to blog about my little project. I would love to be able to use your top photo with a link back to both your site and this tutorial to show where the idea came from. My email address is rachel.everydaysimple(at)gmail.com. My craft blog is Everyday Simple (http://everyday-simple.blogspot.com). Thanks! I look forward to hearing back from you.
