Okay, so this idea is nothing new. But here's my take on making your own giftwrap.
As I said in an earlier post, I REALLY recommend that you go to the paint section of Home Depot or Lowe's and look for this painter's paper. I think it's called masking paper, maybe? Very inexpensive, comes in different sizes and is super handy.
Lighting, editing -ugh - you can see the difference in the shade of green in my images. I think the finished photos down below are a more accurate representation of the color of this paper (which also comes in kraft and sometimes a mauvey color).
Supplies: Ink pad, stamp, paper
Stamp in a random pattern - it won't matter when you wrap the gift. I LOVE this look. I was very happy with how my gift wrap turned out (hope you like it, Sis!). I added a kraft cutout that I added some depth to by inking the edges (gently tapping my ink pad against the edges).
Voila! Cheap and easy with a great end product.
