  1. Cut a piece of kraft wrapping paper into a 20" x 20" square. A good way to make sure the paper is large enough to cover the plant base is to measure and see if the top of the paper will touch the top of the plant.

  1. Use low tack tape, and gently adhere the kraft paper to the cutting mat (or table) to prevent it from rolling as you stamp.
