Nothing gets me in the Christmas spirit more than gift wrapping. I mean it. I could sit and wrap for hours. And talk to myself. I don’t even need to talk to a real person. I’m happily content just talking to myself and wrapping some gifts. (Can you see how badly I need friends?)
I am so picky when it comes to wrapping paper. Some are too loud, boring, ugg, etc. So I prefer to make my own. The wrapping above is so easy it hurts. You just use some paper, some ink, some stamps, and some bows. That’s it! Directions below:
Supplies: assorted wrapping paper (i lurve kraft paper for wrapping), ink/paint in varying colors, stamps, cotton muslin drawstring bags, and round sponge paint brushes
*Excellent news – the stamps I used are from Hobby Lobby and Michael’s Arts & Crafts and they are currently 40% off at both stores. Get your bums over to one of these locations and stock up!
Cover your stamp in ink and stamp in any pattern you like.
I was thinking of carving a tree stamp, but then the easier option presented itself….
This elk is the bomb. I can’t stop staring.
Take the large circle sponge and dip it in paint. Dab in random places on your paper.
Use the medium sponge and connect the dots.
And then add the finishing touch with the littlest guy.
These cotton muslin drawstring bags are perfect for gift cards, jewelry, money… You name it! And they are super easy to stamp.
Add some tags…
And some bows…
And a silver tinsel tree and you’re in business. These are all gifts to me! Just kidding. I have a few friends in my life that these lovelies will be going to. Luckily. :)
