Soon enough it will be wedding season and for me, it started in January of this year. I have not been to a wedding in quite a while (the majority of our friends are married) so when I was wrapping the gifts, I got a little carried away!
These gifts came in huge boxes from Amazon. I don’t think a standard roll of wrapping paper would be sufficient for 1 of the gifts. The solution was a big roll of Kraft packing paper. Kraft packing paper is very thick and quite sturdy.
This paper would withstand any ink or paint and I came up with the idea of painting a drawing of a bride on both gifts. I’m not an illustrator by any standards but gave it a try ;)
- Wrap your gifts with Kraft packing paper and packing tape. Then choose what will you draw on each box. I chose a bride since I was going to a wedding ;)
- I used white ink that flows easily on the kraft paper
- Don’t worry if the pencil outline shows up a little bit. Crafts don’t need to be perfect…
- Add some jute string and white polka dots. (I used this punch to make my polka dots.)
Make a Pretty Gift with White Ink and Kraft Paper is not a quick craft like my usual DIY projects but once you give it a try, time will pass very fast. I think, no matter what you decide to draw, the combination of Kraft paper, white ink and white polka dots will result in a pretty gift and piece of artwork!
