DIY Wrapping Paper Tutorial

Since I shared a lot of gift wrap ideas last week, I thought I’d share how I packaged my presents last year, and plan to do this year as well. I use plain wrapping paper (last year I used white and this year I’m using kraft) and decorate it using a stamp.
 What you’ll need:
Acrylic Paint
Small Paintbrush
 Put a glob of paint on the tip of your paint brush.
 Coat your stamp with paint and press it firmly on your wrapped package.
Just a quick and simple way to add a special handmade touch to your packages!

I also just wanted to take a moment for the support I got on this post. I realized it was my first moment of real vulnerability on this blog and it was somewhat nerve-wracking for me. The response I got was heart warming. I learned that I am not alone. A lot of people shared their similar story with me. Some who live in my area even reached out to me. It just confirmed how special the blogging world is!

  4. Love this idea! When I nannied I always made wrapping paper like this using the kids hand-prints instead of a stamp :)

    Such a cute idea! If I didn’t already spend money on wrapping paper, I’d try it. Perhaps if I run out I will too 😉

    I love the idea! We actually have finger painting time with my son and have him paint cards and newsprint which we then use to wrap presents that we give.

    Most of the time is just a dark blog, but they get the picture!

    I love this tutorial! So simple but exquisite!
    The palette of blue and brown is one of my favorites! Found myself using these same colors in a painting last night!!

    All the best,
