DIY Custom Wrapping Paper & DIY Stamps

In this week’s video tutorial, we’re making diy custom wrapping using a stamp you can create yourself!

This is a great way to make your gift wrapping more personal and special this christmas! It also works great for other occasions such as birthdays, weddings, Valentine’s Day or any other gift-giving occasion.

Difficulty: Easy

Time needed: ~1 hour (for both stamp making and time letting the paper dry)

Materials:

  • Craft foam that comes in sheets, I used the extra thick 1/4″ kind from Michaels, but the thinner kind should also work
  • X-Acto knife or scissors to cut the foam
  • Pencil
  • Paper
  • Hot glue or other adhesive
  • Scissors
  • Piece of wood to attach the stamp to
  • Acrylic paint
  • Solid colored paper that can be used for wrapping

Mini Gingerbread House Gable Box Tutorial

 

Hi everyone! In this week’s video tutorial, we’re making a tiny gable box that looks like a gingerbread house! These are the perfect size for small gifts such as gift cards, jewelry, candy, and more.

 

 

I’ve always liked gingerbread houses (if you’ve seen a few of my Christmas tutorials like my Simple Paper Gingerbread House Tutorial, Gingerbread House Snow Globe Tutorial, or my Halloween Paper Gingerbread House Tutorial I didn’t have to tell you that! 🙂 ) For this project, I thought a gable box might be the perfect shape to turn into a gingerbread house, and I think it worked really well.

Because this project involves an X-Acto knife, please ask someone to supervise if you are young 🙂

 

Difficulty: Easy

Time needed: ~1 hour

Materials:

  • Kraft card stock paper (works great and is already gingerbread colored!)
  • White gel pen
  • Fine white glitter
  • X-Acto knife
  • Score tool
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
