Wrapping Up Christmas

At the beginning of December I ran out of all my Christmas wrapping paper. Rather than going out and buying a ton of rolls, I ran down to the local stationary store and picked up some brown packing paper. I bought a large roll so that it will last for years to come hopefully. I saw the idea on Lauren Conrad's website. Its the perfect blend of rustic and modern. Best part is it can be used for any occasion. I loved the white polka dots that she did, however I do not have a white stamp pad. What I do have is every other colour so I decided to jazz up each present in a different colour. 

How To:
1) Use a small stamp or an eraser on an unused pencil. 

2) Start stamping in no particular order. If you are using a pencil eraser, hold it down for 2-3 seconds otherwise the ink from the stamp pad doesn't transfer quite as well.

3) Wrap you gift! No need to wait for it to dry. Use whatever ribbon you have around for wrapping or crafting. 

Here's an example of one I did with a small snowflake stamp using a light blue colour.

Note: The gift tags are a free printable from Sass & Peril.

Happy Wrapping! Now get to it!
