Getting crafty and making our own stationary from scratch makes us feel like 18th century ladies who spend the day in the parlor and say things like "In a mere fortnight" and "How farest thou?" There is something so sweet and romantic about a hand-stamped, handwritten note.
The best part of this DIY? We stamped using baby bok choy! You can also work with celery and endives to get a similar floral silhouette.
Step 1) Trim baby bok choy, leaving 1.5" at the base.
Step 2) Prepare watercolor paint using a flat plate.
Step 3) Dip bok choy into watercolor paint and test stamp on the extra sheet of paper. This will help eliminate any running paint and provide for a more even stamp.
Step 4) Stamp away! We opted for a random print with a cool, muted color palette.
We will be gifting our cards in sets of four so we decided to finish up with a bit of twine. Voila!
