ECO-FRIENDLY GIFT WRAPPING: BLOCK PRINT STAMPS & RECYCLED PAPER BAG

December 11, 2017

ECO-FRIENDLY GIFT WRAPPING: BLOCK PRINT STAMPS & RECYCLED PAPER BAG

Using a recycled paper bag, craft paint, and block print stamps, we made some eco-friendly gift wrapping that is way cuter than the classic recycled wrapping of plain newspaper!  Check out the photos below to see how you can DIY this easy project!

Supplies: recycled paper bag or box, recycled yarn, craft paint, block print stamps, brayer (optional)

Cut a paper bag open and turn inside-out so any store logos aren’t showing. Then use this paper to wrap your present.

We rolled out some paint on a second paper bag that we were using as our “palette”. This is an optional step, but can help create a thinner layer of paint to stamp from.

TIP: Try tapping the top of the stamp with something else (we used a piece of wood) for a crisper stamp.
