Step1- Use the potato for stamping. You must be thinking how to cut this potato in a shape. But it is very easy to get a simple shape. And as the occasion is Valentines here you see a simple heart shape cut out.

I went through some online tutorials to understand the way to cut the potato. Here you can watch a very easy tutorial.

Now cut the paper as per you gift size.
I marked the sheet with 1 inch lines diagonally. So that you can easily make the placement of the motif equally.

Then take your potato stamp and put some paint on it with a brush, make an impression on a paper before actually stamping on the wrapper- to make sure the motif is leaving proper mark. Also before using the potato stamp blot the potato before printing with a tissue paper so that there is no excessive water, otherwise print will be little watery.

I placed the motif giving it a space. The lines drawn helps you to space out the motif uniformly.

Use a marker to make the arrow pattern.

This is how the pattern turns out. Erase the pencil lines once you are done.
