This project is simple enough for even young children to enjoy.  My sister’s 2-year-old did a great job with it!  I used lady finger because of its unique shape, but you can try other vegetables too.

You will need:
*fresh okra/lady finger(vegetable)
*scrap paper
*card stock
*paints
*sponge
*felt
*hole punch

Step one:
Cut your card stock into desired shape for gift tags.

Step two:
Slice okra in half using a sharp knife.  You will get a better print with a cleaner shape if you remove some of the seeds before stamping.

Step three:
You can make a stamp pad to use for this project by painting a sponge with a generous amount of paint.  Make sure the paint is pretty well absorbed into the sponge.

Step three:
Practice stamping on a piece of scrap paper.  If you place your paper on a sheet of felt you will get better results.

Step four:
Stamp your gift tags, and then punch a small hole in each tag to complete the project.

Lady Finger stamping method can be used in many other greeting cards, decorations and gifts.
