Make Your Own Wrapping Paper - Articles Surfing

Making your own wrapping paper is simply fun. You can easily decorate a piece of paper and personalize it with your own design.

I love making my own wrapping paper, especially if the gift I want to wrap is relatively small in size.

There are many methods to transform a cheap piece of photocopy paper into a designer wrapping paper. I'll explain one of these here.

All you need are a tea bag, brown inkpad and some rubber stamps and just follow the steps listed below. The result is an aged look that is so popular today.

1. Put the tea bag in a cup of boiling water for half an hour.(You can also use coffee)

2. Use a sponge or brush to apply the tea all over the photocopy paper.

3. Leave to dry.

4. If the paper is crumpled or wrinkled, just iron to flatten.

5. Ink the rubber stamps with the brown inkpad and stamp all over the paper.(a word stamp and an image stamp should be sufficient)

Now use the paper to wrap your gift then tie with a brown string and attach a handmade gift card with a handwritten note.
