Homemade Holiday Wrapping Paper

It took longer than I'd planned, but a jam session of about 5 hours resulted in a plethora of pleasing papers! Finally getting around to posting them. Here are two, I'll post more later. After coffee. Maybe.



Happy 2009, people.

Lovely! We make wrapping paper sort of like that--brown craft paper with stamps in red and gold. I save so much money I think I can buy expensive organza ribbon.

Organza ribbon is truly inspired! I was just using plain old raffia in red and green. Organza would add a really nice, graceful feel. Next year . . .

I totally want to do this with my children next year. So cute! I just bought some white butcher paper for now.

Ha! well, it's just about a year after you posted this! Anyway, I found this on 'images' when I did a 'google' search for 'holiday wrapping paper'!

All that to say...I love this very simple, colorful, rich paper you painted! It's great!

Oh! Organza ribbon...sounds lovely!
