Wrapping Paper & Bags!

CHRISTMAS!! It is upon us & I am so prepared. I spent the long holiday weekend decorating, making holiday crafts & wrapping all of my Christmas purchases so far. This year I wanted to do something special for my wrapping paper that was fun & very me. So I made my own wrapping paper,  it is super easy, cheaper then typical wrapping paper & I am so happy with it. 
I bought a roll of kraft paper at the craft store, a circular sponge paint brush & some acrylic paint.
I stamped away! I created wrapping paper....
and gift bags! I just used plain old kraft paper bags that I had lying around. Let the paint dry & wrap away!
 I am so happy how it turned out, I can't wait to give the presents out. 29 days and counting!

Have a great Monday! Happy Holidays :)

  1. Man, you put me to shame, my friends and family are lucky if they even get it decently wrapped! I need to try this after finals!

    1. Don't feel bad! I never did any of this until I graduated college. Last year they were all in target gift bags, not wrapped.

  2. What a great idea! I have tons of kraft paper in the closet. I see a fun DIY project in my future! :)
