Making your own wrapping paper.

Making your own wrapping paper.

Hello crafty friends! It’s Karin again from @creakarts. Welcome to my second blog as guest designer for this month. This weeks theme is all about gifts. Let me take you into the world of making gift tags and wrapping paper. 

I started with a piece of white tissue paper to make my own wrapping paper. A stencil is a perfect way to make a lovely colourful piece of wrapping paper so I used the Blooming Halo layering stencil set for this piece. First I picked the ink colours I wanted to use. Distress oxide inks in the colours: twisted citron, dried marigold, carved pumpkin and cracked pistachio and I also used Pinkfresh studio dye ink in Spanish moss. 
I placed the tissue paper onto a magnetic mat with the rougher side up and started with stencil number one and the colour dried marigold. I placed the little magnets against each side of the stencil to line every stencil up. I used little brushes to add the inks onto the paper. For the second stencil I used the colour carved pumpkin. The third stencil twisted citron, the fourth cracked pistachio and the fifth Spanish moss. Now one wreath is done and I moved the magnetic mat to make another wreath, I repeated this several times until I was satisfied with the amount of wreaths. 

At the end I saw I made one wreath too many so I cut one out of the paper and used it to make a gift tag. For the biggest gift tag I used watercolour paper because I wanted to ink smooch the background. I placed some twisted citron ink onto my glass mat and sprayed a little water over it, I took my tag and placed it on top of the ink and pressed it into the ink with my fingers. When you pick up your piece of paper you’ll see there’s a lovely smooch of ink on the paper. I dried it with my heat tool and did the exact same thing after it was dry but now i used dried marigold. The inks won’t mix but lay on top of each other. 
I cut out the wreath along the lines and cut it in three pieces. I placed them onto the tag, smooth side up, with modpodge and smeared modpodge over the wreath pieces too. When its dry it’s water resistant. After it was dry I added some Ranger ink tarnished brass coloured distress paint splatter and dried marigold distress oxide spray paint splatters. 

I wanted to add a sentiment but I didn’t want to place one over this big tag so I made another smaller tag and just added a sentiment on it. The sentiment stamps I used for this tag are from the Birthday Bouquet stampset. I used memento tuxedo black to stamp the sentiments and uni-ball signo pen in gold to colour some of the edges of the letters. 

Now everything is finished I can wrap up my gift with the tissue paper, smooth side up. If you want to have a white base for the tissue paper you can use normal wrapping paper inside out first. Adding the gifttags with a shiny thin piece of rope to the gift gives it an even more festive look.
There’s one downside about using tissue paper, it can’t get wet, because it’ll tear up very fast when it’s getting too wet. So be careful. 
I hope I inspired you with this blog and you’ll give it a try too! I wish you a wonderful weekend and hope to see you next Saturday for another blog.

My wife and I want to show profound gratitude and appreciation, ever since the pandemic things have always been very difficult for me and my family, I lost my job during the Covid19 stay at home pandemic and it was very difficult for me to secure a new job that was how life became terrible for me, But thank God for bringing this man into my life, Mr Bernie Doran. I read so many good reviews online on how he has been helping a lot of people both small business owners to gain financial income so I contacted him on WhatsApp and that was the day my life change began, I started with the lowest investment plan which was $1,500 and within a week I earned a profit of $18,500 on his trade management system, since then I have been making huge profits with the help of MR BERNIE DORAN, Now I can do basically anything I want for myself and my family, I just can’t thank you enough sir, may God continue to reward you. I highly recommend to everyone that needs financial aid, contact him on:
WhatsApp : +1(424) 285-0682 or his

Using this medium, I would like to express my gratitude to SPYLORD BTC RECOVERY. They attempted to use their hacking expertise to help my husband and I retrieve our $500,000 worth of stolen cryptocurrency. We thought we would never get our money back from those phoney internet investment websites, so we were skeptical at first. but it worked and we got our money back. I’m so glad I found them early. They retrieved about 98% of the total amount we lost.
