I make my own handmade Christmas wrapping paper every year and this year was no exception. I love the simple act of stamping a blank roll of paper to make it my own. This year I went with a little basic tree design:
It’s easy to carve you own stamp using a basic stamp block and linoleum carving tools by Speedball:
The best part is once you’ve carved a stamp you can use it year after year. I had a roll of kraft wrapping paper from Michaels and stamped my trees in rows using a black stamp pad:
I used brown twine as my ribbon and added a cutting of garland to this one:
I stamped these plain white tags to match:
So much wrapping paper looks the same these days and I love how this simple look stands out among the shiny bright papers:
Only a few simple supplies needed:

Thanks for the great idea, I will definitely try it this year! It reminds me of a home project my daughter had recently, we had to create stamps from potatoes. But your option is way more durable and less messy, so we’ll definitely give it a try. My daughter loves to be involved in packing the presents, she always comes up with these cool packing ideas and ways to tie the ribbons.
