Cut the potatoes in half length-wise. Blot the cut side with a rag or paper towel to dry up a bit of the moisture.

And press onto the center of the card. You can use a small potato to make branches off the main cactus stamp. Let the paint dry.

Once stamped, dip the end of a paintbrush in white paint. Make dots over the cactus. Then use the tip of the paintbrush to drag through the dot, forming thorns.

red paper rectangles

Finally, cut a rectangle of red paper to fit the width of the cactus. We angled the sides on ours to give it more of a pot shape.
