BUT it was getting close to Christmas and I want to didn’t to it. I wouldn’t have had the time to get and wrap presents as well.
So I decided to save this DIY to make a gift paper idea in an attempt to get it for me in the following year. I had pinned the page to my inspiration board in my craft room for a year . . . and it was finally time to try at the time.

Make your Own wrapping paper
The biggest question that I get, as it is your own wrapping paper, “what should I get?” I love the packing paper from the Dollar tree that comes on a roll. Last year I wrapped all my gifts in it.
you’ll hear referred to this brown paper as a “Kraft paper” and “butcher paper” as well. You can buy them from a variety of places, such as The UPS Store, WalMart, Target, Michaels . . or even online.
In addition, Kraft paper comes in white, if you dig aren’t the brown. You can also buy paper packaging that comes in the leaves – but that’s more like a newspaper. The stamps won’t be alive on the newspaper. My personal favorite is the brown craft paper, but you have options!
Decorate your gifts
If you save the head to the crafts, to choose from several different ribbons for your packages. But what you want to Mod smorgasbord, you ask? Well, the ornaments for the packaging! You’ll choose wood forms (to go along with the theme of your packaging).
in Addition, you’ll want to grab, to, glitter, what you’ll hold the moulds with a Mod-hodgepodge. They use a thicker, chunky glitter, if you want to don’t paint the forms of the wood, so that the cover is better.
