I’m sure you’ve seen potato prints before, but how about celery prints?  That’s right, celery!  I’m absolutely amazed at how the cut-off ends of a bunch of celery, a part which would normally be destined for the garbage can or compost pile, looks strikingly like a rose when used like a rubber stamp.  Maureen of Maureen Cracknell Handmade used her celery stamp to make beautiful Valentine cards; this would also be a cute and easy way to make hand-stamped wrapping paper, and could have many uses in DIY wedding projects.  [how to stamp a rose using celery]
