The “ART” wrapping paper was so easy to make with regular acrylic craft paint and plain white craft paper. I used this pack of Artist Loft acrylics because it had the perfect range of colors. I painted with one color at a time, painting the letters separately around the paper:
For the stamped paper first a stamp has to be carved:
I’ve made my own wrapping paper almost every year! Last year was chicken themed, click here or click the image to see more!
This year I carved paintbrush, scissors and a crayon box stamps. I stamped them separately on some papers and mixed them all together for others:
The great part is that you’ll have the stamps forever for so many different projects!
