Diy Holiday Print Gift Wrap

I love the look of pretty wrapped packages during the holidays. I wanted to create something a bit more special so I decided to DIY some printed or stamped gift wrap. This is a fun way to add a little personal touch to your presents!

Materials needed:
- kraft  gift wrap or postal wrapping paper
- acrylic paint
- foam craft brush
- foam sheet
- lint roller
- scissors
- pen or marker
- ruler (optional)

Start by drawing out your shapes on to the foam sheet. I used the ruler to help give the stars straighter lines. 

Cut the shapes out. For these stars that are about 1" long, I only needed 4. Place each shape on to your lint roller to create a pattern.

Apply some of your paint to your foam pieces on the lint roller.

1, 2, 3... roll! Treat the lint roller like a roller brush to create a pattern on your kraft paper. The trick it to apply an even amount of pressure while rolling. It takes a bit of practice to get the shapes to fully print.

Keep it going until you fill up the entire sheet! And Voila! You've got a rustic custom gift wrap!

Happy Holidays!
