Only 2 days left until Christmas! If you’re still looking for a quick, unique way to wrap those last minute gifts, why not try stamping your wrapping paper? All you need is a stamp, ink, masking/washi tape, and butcher or plain wrapping paper.
Take your paper and roll it out or cut to size. Take pieces of tape to secure the corners to your working surface.
The simplest version is to use a small stamp that can be repeated in a polka dot-like pattern. I used a small snowflake stamp with white ink and stamped all over – I didn’t try to perfectly space out the stamps because I liked a more handcrafted look.
For something requiring a little more patience, you can use a larger stamp to cover the entire paper surface. I used a wood grain stamp. Because the stamp is likely larger than your ink pad, make sure to evenly cover the entire stamp surface with enough ink.
Position your first stamping at the corner of your paper and press firmly and evenly to ensure the full stamp image comes through. Re-apply ink and position your stamp next to the first stamped area, aligning the edges and corners.
