You will learn that I am an absolute SUCKER for a beautifully wrapped gift. I am all about pretty paper, lush ribbons, and perfectly creased paper. This is not my typical way of wrapping gifts, but it might be my new favorite!
I wrapped this gift in kraft paper, and then used a pencil eraser and white craft paint to achieve the all-over polka dot print. I really love how some of the dots are solid, some a little more faint, and others are just round outlines.
If you would like for all of your dots to be solid, you will just need to dip your eraser lightly in paint before stamping each dot.
You will need:
- Your gift, packaged in a box
- Kraft wrapping paper
- A scissor
- Pencil with unused eraser
- White acrylic craft paint (red or gold paint would also rule!)
- Red yarn (approximately 15 ft. per pom)
- Cardboard "doughnut" shape (learn about that here.)
This was a really fun project! I think this would work really well with a stamp pad instead of paint, and would provide a more subtle effect. Little multi-colored dots would be adorable for a birthday gift!
Next time, I want to try my hand at carving shapes into the eraser before stamping. Can you imagine little red or pink hearts all over a pretty present with some shiny ribbon? SWOON.
