Homemade wrapping paper

homemade wrapping paperI’m taking the ‘handmade pressies‘ path one step further this christmas with some simple and stand out gorgeous wrapping ideas – it’s the thought that counts eh!. All you need is a roll of kids drawing paper, brown manila or sheets of coloured craft paper, some bakers twine, buttons and paint.

To keep our fingers out of the paint I glued some buttons onto wine corks, dipped them into paint spread out on a paper plate and stamped away.
spread the paint thiny so it dries quickly on the paper. Wash the paint off the buttons then and use to make the pressie even MORE gorgeous. see more

If you have any rubber stamps you could use them instead of the buttons. I love the simple tag too :)

Another simple plain paper wrapping idea – just glue a fern leaf on and decorate ‘the tree’

And…finally how absolutely and utterly gorgeous are these free printable wrapping paper and tag designs by Kellie Medivitz.
