How to make your own Gift Wrap

Sometimes you have a little extra time on your hands (okay....that doesn't happen all that often!) but there are times you want to make something from scratch.  Sure, it's easy to buy wrapping paper at the superstore, but making your own is fun and cost effective.  A large roll of craft or poster paper is about 1/2 the price as the same amount of gift wrap.

We were recently invited to a 4-year old birthday party.  We almost always bring books as a present.  I made "4" birthday wrap using our Vanilla Peel & Stick stamps by PSA Essentials and my PSA Stamper.  All of these 4's took less than 5 minutes.

I wrapped the presents after the stamps were fully dry (about 15 minutes) and then tied with some ribbon.

So what do you think? Will you try making your own gift wrap soon? You can get really creative and use stamps from our "Whimsy Cakes" collection or "Happy Birthday" from our sentiments.  You could also switch up your ink with different rows for pops of even more color.   The possibilities are endless here!
