I wanted to try out several different fruits and veggies as stamps so I cut a bunch of stuff up and placed it on a cookie sheet with paper towels to dry them out a bit. I wrapped the lettuce and celery with rubber bands so they would keep their shape and tried to cut everything as flat as possible. I dried them for about 6 hours which was fine for the lettuce, celery and apples but the lemons and oranges should have dried for several more hours.
After Scarlett did her printing it turned into her just painting the fruit which I think she actually enjoyed even more. She would paint them, have want me to wash them off and then paint them a new color.
You can make pretty stamped cards with your produce or some homemade wrapping paper. Apparently this works really well on fabric as well so your options are endless. If you make something share it with me on our Facebook page, I would love to see what you are working on!
