Wrap some baker's twine or other string around a wooden block to create a graphic textured stamp. -can also use rubber bands- Stamp on inside of paper bags from grocery store or paper that comes in mailed packages, use as wrapping paper.
My recipe: handful of pasta, several drops of food coloring, a small splash of alcohol T or less). Rub pasta around in bag, then let pasta sit in bag until all color is absorbed (bag becomes clear). Then dry on newsprint.
Hopefully, this will justify my saving (and my mother saving!) paper towel and toilet paper rolls. Tons of ways to use paper rolls, great project tutorials! Not just kids' crafts. Some really great ideas.
