Christmas Wrapping paper

Some of you may remember that last year Rascal and I made Christmas wrapping paper by potato printing on brown wrapping paper. This year I decided to do something similar to wrap various presents for swaps.

I used a cookie cutter to create a regular star shape and then cut out a few extra details.

I kept it simple and just used red paint.

I was really pleased with the finished result, and made some gift tags to match. I used black pen to add a little bit of detail to the gift tags.


And there you go, cheap simple and pretty!
