DIY: Stamped Gift Wrap

Printed Gift Wrap

I’m a big fan of wrapping gifts with brown paper – simple, sweet and cost-effective, but also highly customisable, it tends to be my go-to gifting choice at birthdays and Christmas. However, when wrapping up my sister’s presents for our birthday, I figured I could try and make things a little more colourful in the brown paper department, so I got a few supplies I had in my craft stash and made this little pretty piece. All I needed was foam, a stamping base, corks, some paint and some drying time, and I had my very own uniquely wrapped gifts. I plan on doing this more in the future and will probably make something in a similar vain, but more striking for Christmas, so I’m excited to see where it goes and what ideas catch my eye, but this was a successful start.

Stick three triangular shaped pieces of foam onto the stamp base. Use paintbrushes to cover each triangle in a different colour and then stamp onto the brown paper. Do this several times, twisting the stamp each time so that the pattern varies. In between the triangle clusters use three corks to stamp circles.
