DIY Bubble Print Holiday Wrapping Paper
Wrapping gifts is one of my favorite parts of gift giving. I try to make my gift as special on the outside as it is on the inside. Here is a way to make your own wrapping paper and add your own creative touch to your holiday gifts.
- Roll of Craft Paper
- Acrylic paint
- Bubble Wrap
- Sponge brush
- Cut out a large piece of craft paper and lay it flat.
- Choose your color (s) of paint you would like your wrapping paper to be. Please note light colors show up best on the darker craft paper. I used two shades of blue and white to create a snowy effect. Metallic paints like silver also show up well.
- Use your sponge brush to paint over the bumpy side of your bubble wrap.
- Time to print! Turn over the bubble wrap and press gently. Repeat over and over until you cover your paper.
- You can experiment with different amounts of paint and color and easily make different kinds of wrapping paper from one roll!
