Fun Valentines Day Gift Wrap

This Valentines Day, you don't have to run out and buy heart-covered wrapping paper. You probably already have the supplies to make your own unique and recycled gift wrap.







What's The Plan, Stan?
I made this wrapping paper that works for Valentines Day but doesn't really scream Cupid.

Ingredients:
  • Rubber Stamp (I used a really fun Owl stamp I got from the dollar bin at Michaels a few months ago)
  • Ink Pad (you can use all kinds of colors - I just used black ink)
  • Tissue Paper, Craft Paper, Old Wrapping paper (shhh it's a secret, but I just used the tissue paper from a giftbag I'd gotten a while ago)

Tools Of The Trade:
  • Creativity
  • Hands

Process:
  • Ink up your stamp



  • Plot your image around the paper - spreading it out. I found I could get three ok stamps with one go before having to re-ink. The first stamp will be darkest, then lighter etc.




  • Work your way around until the entire page is covered



This also works well as a background for your jewelry photographs: This is my Hearts of Porcelain Valentines Day set

C'est Fin!
