melon mail

Yesterday I was inspired by a potato printing post by peas and needles to make a watermelon envelope to send to a friend :-) 


Potato printing is so simple and super fun! I hadn't done it for years but I definitely recommend giving it a try. It's such a good way to make pretty wrapping paper - I did a whole massive sheet of watermelons!

  6. That looks awesome! Potato printing is so under-rated. I too haven't done it for years - gonna change that!
