2020 has been an unforgettable year dominated by a global pandemic and instability, but the important thing is we’ve made it through these difficult times, one day at a time. Despite everything, there are always good and beautiful things to be thankful for in life.
Sending positive vibes to your loved ones is nothing new. From my vintage paper collection, here’s my wish for 2021 for you:
Happy New Year! Here’s to a full recovery and better times ahead!
You’ve made the effort to find the perfect present—now don’t forget about its presentation! This year make a holiday statement that is also sustainable with hand painted wrapping paper. With upcycle treatment, a humble grocery bag becomes merry and bright gift wrap that evokes wonder in all! All you need is acrylic paint in your favorite colors and a few household items to create these designs.
1. Fork it over!
Use the tines of a fork to print the paper with chevrons in contrasting classic Christmas colors. Experiment with different color schemes and patterns.
2. Connect the dots.
Paint the paper with dots, lines, and squiggles in navy blue or black. Add tiny pops of color with icy pastels.
3. Be a smart cookie!
Dip your most beloved holiday cookie cutters in paint to print the paper. Once the paint has dried, draw in the fine details.
Try creating your own designs or printing paper with other found objects such as seashells or leaves. It’s a wrap! If you have leftover paper, upcycle it into ornaments or gift tags.
Thanks for visiting!
