I don’t know about you but I have never really loved the whole wrapping gifts part of christmas. I mean, I love buying the presents for my friends and family but when it comes to wrapping them I just suck. I have never had that artistic eye what you need to make the presents pretty. This year I came across this cute diy wrapping paper idea in pinterest and it looked so simple that I had to try it myself. Honestly I am so proud of how it turned out! The whole idea was so easy and festive, I am absolutely in love! And sharing is caring right so here comes the instructions how you can make it too:
What you need:
- Plain wrapping paper (I got brown and white but any color you desire works)
- Acrylic paint or ink (I used green paint mixed with black ink and also some white paint)
- Potatoes to use as a stamp
- Gift tags
- Fabric/curl ribbon
- A stamp pad with some black ink (not necessary)
Step one: Use a small knife to carve the stamp you desire into the potato. Christmas tree was really easy to make (just believe me as this comes from the person who happens to have zero artistic talent). Just draw a line of three triangles on paper and cut it out then use it as a base for your craving.
Step two: Dip your stamp into the paint and fill the plain wrapping paper with the stamps marks.
Step three: Make sure the paper is dry before wrapping your presents. Decorate them with whatever your heart desires. I used some cute fabric ribbons and small brown gift tags.
And volà, that is how you do cute wrapping paper all by yourself! Hope this inspires someone to give it a try, it was so much fun and even little addicting. I found myself making more and more paper with different stamps haha!
Thank you for stopping by, I hope you have a lovely and festive rest of the week!
