Because of my DIY Christmas this year, I also decided to make my own wrapping paper.
Well, I didn’t make the paper, I just decorated it but still, it wasn’t Christmas wrapping paper before I started.
I really like wrapping presents, for me it’s part of the whole gift giving experience. I just love making my presents look lovely on the outside as well as the inside.
Now would I recommend creating your own wrapping paper? Err no. I took me 12 hours to create the paper and then wrap all the presents up. I could have made the pattern easier and quicker but I wanted it to look festive and also fairly simple.
So how did I do this wonderful thing? Well it’s really really easy. I took a role of craft paper, a rubber stamp, gold ink and some string.
I stamped the paper all over with the stamp in a random pattern and then used it as I would any wrapping paper.
You can create a lot of paper this way for not a lot of money but quite a lot of time, ta da!
Why don’t you have a go at making some yourself?
