Create Hand-Printed Wrapping Paper

Personalise your wrapping paper so that the wrap is as much as a gift as the present. A slightly more advanced make but very straight forward and satisfying once you’ve got the knack.


You will need:

•    Speedball Speedy Carve rubber (or simply a large, flat eraser works too!)
•    A craft knife
•    A lino cutter (you can purchase these very cheaply from art and craft shops)
•    A Pencil and paper
•    An ink pad in your chosen colour
•    A roll of Kraft paper


Have a think about your design – keep it simple. We simply drew around a glass to get two over lapping circles then only cut out half of each to get this modern shape.
Cut around your shape carefully using the knife and then using the lino cutter, carve away the areas you don’t want to print.
Bring the stamp pad to your stamp and dab all over to ensure the whole surface is covered with ink.
Stamp away! You may want to line up the design or offset it as we did here.
Wrap using your handmade paper and use coordinating ribbon. You can also stamp the design on a tag so that everything matches.
