Handmade cards to match a handmade gift — because that’s what Rocky products are, handmade in the heart of the Canadian Rockies. We know times are unpredictable and maybe you’re spending more time indoors. That doesn’t mean you can’t connect with friends and family in a fun, virtual way while getting your craft on. Call all your besties or get your loved ones together from afar over your favourite online platform and get crafty. Here’s our guide to making potato stamp (remember those?) holiday cards with your friends, virtually.
The Rocky Mountain Soap Company marketing team got together virtually to test this tried and true potato method themselves!
You probably have your video platform of choice nailed by now, but in case you’re looking for options, here are a few:
ZOOM We bet you’ve heard of Zoom by now. The free version has a 40-minute limit and lets you host up to 100 people on.
SKYPE Skype has been connecting people by video over distances for a long time now. It’s free and has no time limits, and can host up to 50 people on one call.
GOOGLE HANGOUTS If you have a gmail account, you can use Google Hangouts to video chat. 25 people can hop on a video call at a time, but you’ll only be able to see 10 friendly faces at once.
FACEBOOK On Facebook video chats you can only see up to six people at a time, but others can join and listen, so it’s a solid option for small gatherings.
There are so many different ways to get creative with your holiday card making. If you want to keep it simple, here’s how to make a DIY potato stamp card.
You can get crafty with all sorts of embellishments like glitter, or markers. No potatoes on hand? Get creative with a rubber eraser. Or even your thumbprint!
Not into potato carvings? Go retro with yarn or embroider thread.
These crafts are just an idea to get your creative juices flowing. The real joy comes from connecting with your friends and family while doing a fun craft together. And how fun will it be when your loved ones get the (potato) fruits of your labour in the mail that you made together?
