It seems that this time of year there are twenty million things to wrap and send off in the mail (or even place under the tree!) Nice wrapping paper, gift bags, and tissue paper can really add up! I wanted to find an inexpensive and charming way to wrap my gifts this year. Kraft paper to the rescue! You can buy it in large rolls, and use a few inexpensive tools to dress it up again and again!
Use a stag stamp and white ink to create a rustic pattern on your Kraft Paper. Use a hot glue gun to place a small dot of glue on each deer’s nose, topping it off with a tiny red pompom. Finish with a bow (I love festive Baker’s Twine), or leave it as is for an effect that’s just as charming!
Use the eraser of a new pencil to stamp dots with stamp ink on the Kraft Paper. Either make them uniform, or mix up colors in a scattered pattern as pictured! Make sure if you’re using more than one color to finish up with each color individually before cleaning the eraser and moving to the next color.

Use a hot glue gun to dot the back of paper snowflakes, then press down on to your wrapped package. Space them evenly, or overlap as pictured for a modern look!

Are you guys fans of Kraft Paper? I just discovered it and LOVE it! So many possibilities and it’s great to lay over my dining table to protect the wood while I craft with Marlowe! How do you use Kraft Paper?
