Wrap it Well


Just a quick post to share a couple of my favourite homemade gift-wrapping ideas, in case you need a little inspiration for dressing up your Christmas presents this year.

If you’d like to make some unique wrapping paper, how about trying these ideas:

Painted giftwrap – grab some acrylic paints in Christmas colours and paint patterns on pieces of brown kraft paper.  You don’t need to be an artist to do this – I find that simple designs like dots, dashes and freestyle hearts can be the most effective.

Stamped giftwrap – use hand-carved or bought stamps to stamp up some brown kraft paper.  I used a lotus seedpod stamp (one of the first stamps I ever made!) and my classic fantail stamp.  I also added some little triangles drawn with coloured pencil, to add some colour. image

I hope this gives you some ideas… best wishes for your holiday preparations!image
