What You'll Need:
- Tissue paper or a brown paper bag
- Small box
- Clear tape
- Paper towel
- Select a small box to use for making the wrapping paper. A jewelry box works really well, and it can be square or rectangular. Cut out a four-foot length of string, and tape one end to the box. Now wrap the box with string, crisscrossing the length, and then tape the other end to the box.
- Place a sheet of tissue paper on your work table or remove the handles and cut open a brown paper bag, and then create a stamp pad for the project by folding a sheet of paper towel in half and in half again. Squeeze a drop of paint on the paper towel, and gently stamp the box into the paint and then onto the tissue paper. Create a pattern, or simply stamp in a random design. Use the toothpick to separate strings if they clump together.
- Once the paper is dry, it's ready to use for wrapping! Need a bit of gift-wrapping assistance? Check out these easy directions for wrapping like a pro.
