I had a lot of fun making this Christmas wrapping paper—I think I’m going to make a few more designs and pass them out to my loved ones. I’m sure they’ll like that.
Handmade Wrapping Paper
Thursday, December 6, 2012
Being a full time papercrafter means I always have stamps on hand—in all types of styles themes and sizes. So, it’s only natural that I make my own wrapping paper for Christmas, right? One thing I absolutely love about making my own things is they're so original and OOAK; and, homemade things can’t be found anywhere else. I bought this brown Kraft wrapping paper at the dollar store, and I already had the stamps, ink, and twine on hand. So I’m super excited that this entire project was only $1.00.
The stamps I used to create these two types of wrapping paper are made by the awesome, Martha Stewart. One of the sets is a year or two old, and the other is brand new for X-mas 2012. I was lucky enough to find these in the store—and when I find Martha Stewart stamps in the craft store I ALWAYS buy them; namely, because I can use my 50% off coupon and get it cheap. Plus, Martha Stewart stamps are basically like collectors’ items because once these items come out they don’t come out again, and they end up being sold for double or triple on ebay. To view the stamp sets I used click here and the other set is so rare that I couldn't even find a link for it online :/
