I bought a little Valentine’s Day gift for my 3-year-old niece and decided it would be fun to make my own hand-stamped wrapping paper. She loves owls (could have a little something to do with her mom working for the National Aviary), so it was a perfect fit for this week’s DT assignment.
I started by cutting a piece of white butcher paper big enough to fit the box I was going to wrap. Butcher paper is sold in rolls. I bought mine at Michaels, but if you Google it you can find other sources as well. I spread the paper out on my craft table and went to town stamping a bunch of Valentine’s Day Owls, hearts, and sentiments from DeNami’s Valentine’s Day Collection. I added color to the images with markers.
I used the paper to wrap my gift box:
Then, I created a coordinating tag. I die-cut some hearts from cardstock. I stamped one of the owl images in the center of the smallest heart and colored her with markers. I stamped Happy Valentine’s Day and To/From on the back of the scalloped heart and layered all of the hearts together. I added some sparkle with a clear glitter pen, punched a hole in the top and threaded some twine through. Here’s a look at the front and back of the tag:
To finish, I wrapped some baker’s twine around the gift package and attached the tag with a bow.
